Successful first series of photo courses

This week brings to an end the first series of photo courses for 2010 – and what a success!

As well, the confirmations are coming in for Ontario’s Natural Gems nature and outdoor photography workshops held this summer in some of Ontario’s best provincial parks. We’ll be in Rondeau, Grundy Lake, Sandbanks, Bon Echo, Killbear and perhaps Arrowhead. Two confirmed dates are:
  • Grundy Lake Provincial Park – August 6 & 7
  • Rondeau Provincial Park – August 13 & 14

Each workshop has three sessions:

  • Friday evening Intro Session from 7-9pm
  • Saturday morning Field Session from dawn to about 11am or Noon. We’ll concentrate on capturing the glorious morning light with small group hands-on instruction on landscapes, close-ups, metering, lighting, creative composition – whatever the participants needs specific help with.
  • Saturday afternoon Image Review & Wrap-up Session from 1pm to 4pm.

This schedule allows you to dedicate some quality time to your photography as well as having some time with your family camping. The workshop fee for Ontario’s Natural Gems is $175 per person.
