I am George and I will be your instructor for the Landscape and Environmental Portrait workshop Sept 15th through the 20th. I am very excited about the workshop and look forward to meeting you in-person. It is going to be an exciting and fun week.
Having attended many workshops over the years I can guess you are wondering just what to bring and what we will be covering. First, relax. The main goal is to help everyone improve from whatever level of photography they are. It is more important to learn to see and understand the components of an artistic and inspiring photography rather than what equipment you now own. Bring what you have. If you own a wide-angle lens and a mid-telephoto or zoom lens then that is good enough. The photographer creates the photograph, not the gear. If you are advanced then you probably already know what to bring. The point is we will take everyone from whatever level they are and help them to reach for the next level creatively.
We will be doing some post-production and retouching on the images you create so if you have a laptop and a way to read and download your files from your card that will be a big help for you to learn your software.
One piece of gear that will be invaluable that you may not have thought of is a flashlight. I personally prefer the type that fit on a headband and can be worn like the Black Diamond available from Amazon. This will allow you to use both of your hands and direct a beam forward when walking in low light. Remember to bring spare batteries for the light and a backup card for you camera.
Please feel free to email me any questions you might have. I know we will have a wonderful week.
