PHOTO WORKSHOP - TEXAS WILDFLOWER LANDSCAPES
ARE YOU READY FOR ANOTHER GREAT TEXAS WILDFLOWER SEASON? Recent lack of rain have experts wondering what 2013 will look like! We plan at this point to continue forward with holding our workshops. Though we may not get the spectacular fields we have seen recently, we will still have beatiful flowers and we will be teaching techniques on how to shoot those in the field. Your instructor, Kevin Vandivier is the former Picture Editor for Texas Highways Magazine and has seen and judged millions of wildflower photos. Since this workshop is our most popular, we recommend you sign up early. Non-photographer student spouses are welcome to come along for this weekend. Feel free to call us at 682-325-2115 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or wish to place a reservation.

We will meet and start the Workshop at TPW Wildflower Workshop Headquarters (HQ) in Marble Falls, Texas at 5 pm on Friday evening. After dinner and the opening presentation, Kevin will set up a demo shoot for all. Saturday morning will start with breakfast. After a short lecture, photographers will be given their assignments before heading out to shoot some beautiful wildflower photos. While out in the field, photographers will hook up with Kevin for a demo shoot on the proper way to use a hand held flash in the field. Once he has set up the shot like he desires, each student will have a turn to shoot with their own camera, allowing them to be able analyze the photo later on their own computer. Kevin will guide the students through multiple shooting techniques. In the end, each photographer's self confidence might actually border on arrogance. Sunday morning will start with wildflowers at first light. Afterwards, all will return to HQ for breakfast followed by Kevin demonstarting some key photoshop techniques and final critiques. The workshop will end when everyone’s questions have been answered!
