Dan's Field Workshops

 

THURS 6:30 - 8:30 A.M.

Beach Photography Scavenger Hunt (co-leader, Lisa Langell)

Photography is about creative vision- and creative vision doesn’t usually happen at home on the sofa. It happens out in the field where you learn to be hyper aware of the opportunities that surround you if you simply choose to pause and see with an open mind! This session will help you train your brain to think through not just the obvious- but the infinite opportunities for beautiful images at a single location! Join leaders Dan Walters and Lisa Langell on the beach at dawn as they team up to guide you through several photography challenges that will elevate your skill, creativity, and open-mindedness! From birds-in-flight, close-ups, flat-lay, abstracts, triptychs, silhouettes, and more, Dan and Lisa will provide a shot list, inspiration, instruction and abundant support as you create and compose your way through a scavenger-hunt style shoot that is fun, educational, and creative.
