Lightroom and Landscapes

Join two island professional photographers in a “24 hour” workshop

  • Mark Gardner and Bob Stavers will take you through the nuances of Lightroom - a photo organizing and editing software program - and then lead you in the field to capture images at sunrise and sunset, the “golden hours” for photographers.
  • Day 1: Early afternoon classroom sessions on Lightroom and tips and techniques for capturing landscapes; then move into the field for practice at sunset.
  • Day 2: Early morning predawn and early morning shooting in the field before moving back into the classroom to work on and review the images you have taken.
  • Location to be mutually agreed upon. Workshop to be held on a mutually agreeable date in 2017, limited to eight participants; meals and lodging not included.

Here is your chance to learn or become more proficient with creating landscape photographs and using Lightroom to turn them into awesome, extraordinary images.

Value: $1600
