2017, July 29: Summer Sunflowers - RAIN, POSTPONED to 7/30

Due to the rain forecast on 7/29 this class is postponed to Sunday, 7/30.

Enjoy an early summer morning in the Sunflower fields of McKee- Beshers Wildlife Management Area and explore the many ways to capture this huge field of golden sunflowers.

We’ll work on getting the best exposures and making creative compositions. The possibilities are endless; from wide angle ladder shots, up close macro shots, zoom in tight telephoto shots and more so bring an assortment of lenses and play with them all. 

If you’re feeling creative and want to break the mold, bring a Lensbaby and we’ll show you how to selectively focus, if you’re an iPhoneographer, we’ll show you some pretty amazing ways to shoot and process your images, or, if you like HDR we’ll help you with bracketing your images - providing the morning winds are still.

A tripod is recommended for this class.
