Exploring the north metro area of the Twin Cities​

Working with the Centennial School District's Continuing Education Program opens the door to being able to offer programs that can take advantage of some great outdoor locations both around the Twin Cities Metro area as well as the area just north of the Twin Cities.  Please join me for one of these fun outings.  Each class will combine lecture and hands on activities.

Photography After Dark Stroll

After the sun sets it is time to get creative.  Digital photography has made it possible to capture scenes at night that were either very difficult, or even impossible.  During this program, I will discuss a number of techniques related to astro photography, urban and rural scenes, and several techniques for light painting.

In addition to the lecture, we will also be putting our new skills to the test by visiting the Franconia Sculpture Garden after dark

Winter Bridge

Photographing in a Winter Wonderland

 

Winter is my favorite time of year to be out with my camera.  The dry crisp air combined with snowy scenes makes for some amazing photos of wildlife, landscapes, and even urban scenes.  I can also access areas that other times of the year are inaccessible. 

On January 20th, I will be giving a lecture on winter photography.  On the 22nd, we will put some of the concepts covered during the lecture into practice at Minnehaha Falls.

We will begin in the classroom, where we will discuss composition, techniques, and tools needed to get the most from your travel photos.  This will be followed by a photo shoot in St. Paul where we will take photos around the city, and finish with Mickey's Diner.

Unlocking a Hidden World with Macro Photography

 

Macro photography is fun anytime of the year.  It can be done at any time, and in any place.  The photos we take often represent the view of objects that are seldom seen due to the amount of close-up detail.  This class covers everything from the basics to some more advanced topics like focus stacking.

This class will provide both classroom lecture and hands on activities to help you capture some fantastic macro shots.

Exploring Nature through Photography

The upper midwest is a fantastic place for getting out in nature.  Opportunities for capturing photos of the scenery, wildlife, plants, and flowers are everywhere.

Join us as we present tips and techniques related to nature photography.  We will discuss everything from understanding light, planning and research, and tips and techniques specific to the different types of nature photography.  To practice the concepts covered in the class, we will spend time at both the Como Zoo and Park.
