About the event

This course content will be determined by student experience and needs,  from basic exposure and composition to advanced techniques such as HDR  and slow shutter.  Students should have an adjustable DSLR or mirrorless  digital camera and be familiar with basic digital photography and post  processing.  Bring your camera, lenses, tripod, shutter release cables,  and laptop with your favorite photo processing program such as Photoshop  or Lightroom.  We will spend time in the mountains, so dress  accordingly.        We’ll meet early Saturday, June 1 for some location work during the  morning golden hours, then retire to the classroom for processing and  critique of the pictures we took that morning.  After lunch together, we  will stay around town for some indoor, architectural, and other photo  opportunities during the early afternoon hours, then head back to the  classroom for more processing and sharing.  After dinner, students are  encouraged to individually capitalize on the evening golden hours and  process as needed.  On June 2, Sunday morning, we’ll get together again  in the classroom for a final show and tell and critique.

Michael has been taking photographs of Highland County for more than 50  years, and is still awed by the beauty and variety of the landscapes  here. He has won several awards in the Scenic Virginia Vitas contest,  exhibits in galleries in Monterey and Staunton and is an instructor at the John C. Campbell Folk School.
