About the Event

1.5 Day Nature Photography Workshop with Dean Schoeppner

limited to 10 photographers

This class incorporates a mix of classroom, hands-on instruction in the field, and social/free time during a 1.5 day stay at Whiterock Conservancy. 

The goal is to learn the capabilities of you and your camera and share ideas. Experiment with creative ideas and make your photos unique. 

  • Learn the best techniques utilizing the aperture/shutter speed/ISO. 
  • Try various focus and metering patterns to get the shot the way you want it. 
  • Add in some unique composition ideas, and create the photos you envision. 
  • Critique samples from the day's shooting. 
  • Handle lenses, tripods, filters, and other accessories in the field. 

We will also find time to explore basic editing of color, contrast, cropping, etc. Some simple retouching can be explored as well.

Basic Schedule:

5-6 hours: Hands-On, in the field shooting with ideas and locations scouted out.
