Turn your artistic vision of the Huron River into reality
HRWC is hosting two Photography Workshops in 2013, May 11-12 & October 19-20. Local professional photographers Michael Seabrook and Marc Akemann will lead the classes. Each workshop, in May & October, will consist of 2 half-day classes. We encourage you to register for both workshops to get the full benefit of what Marc and Mike will be teaching. Come prepared to get hands-on experience in the field, and learn basic techniques for taking great nature photos—obtaining correct exposures, controlling the depth-of-field, making sharper photos, customizing your camera to do what you want it to, and more. All skill levels are welcome.
Special guest speaker: world-renowned photographer and local Ann Arbor resident, Howard Bond will be speaking at the Sunday workshops.
Cost: $100 each workshop for HRWC members and $120 for non-members.
For both workshops an HRWC member would pay a combined total of $200 for both workshops. Non-members pay $120 or $240 total for both workshops. You can become a member of HRWC for $35 by joining here, and then pay the member price for your workshops, and at the same time help the Huron River.
What to Bring: A camera that allows you to manually set the shutter speed and aperture. All participants will receive a Huron Camera coupon good for 10% off camera bags, memory cards and filters. One time use only but you can purchase multiple items.
Maximum registration for both classes is 20 participants.
