Taking and Making Great Fall Photographs – October 8
Oct 8 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Fall is a beautiful time along the North Shore. But capturing the beauty can be difficult.
Join professional landscape photographer Chris Sandberg (www.cksandbergphoto.com) for a four-hour working session on getting closer to the elusive goal of making great fall photographic prints.
The program will be split into three parts:
  • classroom time exploring the creative and technical aspects of shooting in the wild
  • a block of time for individual shooting in the many settings around the Cove with Chris’ coaching, and
  • a final segment where Chris will print a selected image that each participant took during the class and show the Photoshop techniques used in that process.

Each participant will go home with a 10 X 14 print of their chosen image of the day.

Requirements: digital camera and clothing and footwear appropriate for shooting in the woods and on the shoreline. $30 for non-members; $25 for members of Sugarloaf.
