On Saturday April 5, 2014 Washington DC will be hopping with activity and I'll be holding a one day photo workshop for photographers of all skill levels. This includes five hours of field instruction with a shoot at sunrise and sunset, a wonderful lunch, and a portfolio review. The workshop is limited to five participants to ensure everyone receives personalized attention. I hope you can join us for a memorable day in our nation's capital.
DAWN and SUNRISE 6:00am - 9:00am
To take full advantage of the golden morning light, we will meet at 6am for a sunrise shoot around the beautiful Tidal Basin. There, we will create memorable photos of several historic monuments.
LUNCH and PORTFOLIO REVIEW 1:30pm - 4:00pm
In the afternoon, we will re-gather for lunch (included) and a portfolio review session in a comfortable lounge. You will receive in-depth feedback and helpful advice on your images, post-processing technique, and more.
SUNSET and DUSK 6:00pm - 8:00pm
As the sun sets, we will photograph the numerous monuments and memorials in the National Mall. To maximize the magic light, we will continue shooting into dusk, creating breathtaking images along the way.
Testimonials from Previous Participants:
"Thanks to Chris and Sue for a fabulous day in DC. I learned so much in one day about photography as well as my camera. I learned to use many features of my camera that previously I had no idea how to use. Chris keeps these workshops to small groups for personalized attention and boy did we ever get personal attention. It seemed like every time I snapped a pic, Chris was looking over my shoulder waiting to critique the shot and offer suggestions as to how to make the picture better. It was an awesome day and I highly recommend signing up for one of the workshops." - Peter
"Chris provided excellent photography instruction in a small group setting. The weekend workshop I booked with Chris was well planned and structured. There were several hours of photographing in well selected locations, there was a discussion and image review, and additional information about post production and online tools were given. Chris knows his subject matter inside out! The instruction provided has enabled me to use all featured on my camera. Plus, I took away wonderful images, and I have never gone back to any of the automatic/semi-automatic modes. This man is a pro! Thanks a lot!" - Angela
