Whether you are traveling abroad or close to home, your photographs should be your most precious souvenir. In this two-day workshop, you will learn how to make stunning travel photographs that will preserve your memories and dazzle your family and friends.
The first session, at the downtown Glen Arbor Arts Center, will include instruction on the basics of manual camera operation, exposure, and ideas for boosting the creativity of your travel photographs. We will make exposures in downtown Glen Arbor, and view and critique each other’s work.
The second day consists of afternoon, Golden Hour, and sunset photography onsite at the Sleeping Bear Dunes Thoreson Farm location of the GAAC. Located in the Lake Michigan Bluffs, the Thoreson Farm provides opportunities to photograph rustic farmhouse architecture, the rolling landscape, Lake Michigan, Sleeping Bear Point, and North and South Manitou Islands. Your instructor will be available both days to answer questions about your camera and to provide feedback on your images.
