Over the period of the Day - Some topics we'll be discussing –

What makes a Good Photograph?


How to work with Back light, side light and fill light and why

Our first location will be Grey Towers home of environmentalist Gordon Pinchot,  here we will work on photographing the beautiful grounds as well as working with a model in the landscape. Possibly we'll get access to the interior, provided it's not too crowded and we’ll be able to photograph the inside of this historic mansion as well.  Portrait and wide-angle lenses will be used for the exterior. Tripods will be important as well as wide-angle lenses for the interior. 

From here we will stop for lunch in town and then take a short drive to Luna Parc home to artist Ricky Boscorino. Luna Parc is an environmental sculpture park. It is an ever-changing, fun, and quirky kind of place with so much to see and photograph. I guarantee you will be astounded and delighted. For this location bring along a tripod, a macro lens, if you have one, and various other lenses.  You will want to spend many hours here. There is no doubt; you will want to bring along your partner for this one, as it is quite unusual and everybody just loves it!  If we’re lucky, Ricky Boscorino, the Artist will be home and you will have a chance to meet him and possibly do a portrait of him.

Afterwards we will head out to one of the many waterfalls. Here we will do time/motion studies and work on shutter speed and aperture selection.  You will want to bring along a tripod, various lenses & possibly a hand held release (you can also use your camera’s self timer)

If you decide to stay for the another day, the following morning we will meet up for breakfast & we'll then head out to Synders Llama farm a beautiful majestic 70 acre farm where 80 Llama’s roam freely which is also very close by. We will have free access to the farm, inside the barns and be able to get up close and personal with the animals. 

Afterwards, we will return to the Learning Center, edit our film select our favorite shots for another review and learning session.  Please bring along your laptop if you have one, as it will make it easier to edit depending on the amount of participants.

During this Workshop JoAnne will teach you many tricks of the trade and you will come away a much better photographer
