Class Description

Ready to capture earths natural beauty? Wildflowers, lush trees, blue sky…you get the picture. Grab your camera and join us in for Digital Workshop Center’s Outdoor Photography class. Our Outdoor DSLR photography class combines classroom learning with real-life practice in a gorgeous natural setting.

Our Outdoor Photography class will cover the basics of composition, natural light, exposure, equipment choice and filters for both color and black & white methods. Over the course of this one day class you will discuss topics such as digital post-processing tools, guidelines for approaching wildlife and “leave no trace” ethics.

You will begin class at the Digital Workshop Center and then transition to a local park or natural area. Your expert instructor, Josh Hardin,  will lead students through an easy nature walk, giving photo “assignments” and techniques for students to explore along the way. At the end of the walk students will also participate in an instructor-led constructive critique.
