Where: Townsend, Tennessee
When: April 24-28, 2016
Class Size: 10
Registration: If you have any questions or wish to register, please email David Johnston (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Join renowned photographer, David Johnston, on a three-day exploration of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountain National Park in the Spring. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most well-known park to David since he lives in Tennessee. This will be David’s 6th year photographing the park. We will be shooting some of the best spring color in the United States. There is not a shortage of things to photograph in the park!
Throughout each day, David will help you reach your full photography potential by helping you develop your technical photography skills, as well as your creative vision for photography. You will be taught composition strategies, how to shoot in dramatic light of early morning, sunsets, and possibly night photography. During any downtime during the day when light isn’t particularly interesting, David show you different photography and post processing techniques that will help you take your editing skills and your overall photography to the next level.
Even though we will go over post processing, the focus of this workshop is to work on your photography in the field. That means we will be spending the majority of the time shooting outdoors. With that in mind, it should be known that we will remain flexible due to the uncertainty of weather.
