2-Part Workshop: Creativity with Neutral Density Filters

Zoom Workshop If you've never used a neutral density filter before, you're missing out on a great opportunity. That's because neutral density filters help you slow time down, creating gorgeously dreamy photos that are full of motion and emotion. In this two-part workshop, we'll break down the barriers to getting into long exposure photography by using and understanding the tools needed to create stunning long exposure photos any time of day. Part 1: Sat. Jan. 23, 9 a.m. to noon; Part 2: Sun. Jan 24, 9 a.m. to noon

Due to current gathering restrictions, we are presenting both parts of this workshop online via Zoom, but during the first day you will have a self-guided field trip following online instruction. The workshop price has been reduced to reflect this update.

Part 1: Sat. Jan. 23, 9 a.m. to noon; Part 2: Sun. Jan 24, 9 a.m. to noon

Day one of this workshop will begin with instruction and then you will be asked to go to a select location (your backyard, some place close to home, or a nice day trip to the Delta) to shoot landscapes, flora/fauna and/or architecture with your neutral density filter.  The second day you will meet back online for review, questions and critique.  

An equipment list and some options on purchasing neutral density filters will be given to students in advance of the workshop.
