Workshop Overview

Walk the forest trails seeking out artistic designs, abstracts, and images that convey meaning beyond their beauty. This is a great chance to put the principles of photography to work while exploring the incredibly lush forest of Cascade Head. Participants should be prepared for some light hiking and for being outdoors for several hours at a time. With afternoon editing, printing, and critique of our work, this is an excellent opportunity for those who want to increase their understanding of digital photography, image manipulation and digital printing. Participants will leave with archival prints of their favorite images.
