It never gets old, so let’s do the “City by the Bay” once again!

We’ll hit the streets of San Francisco and take on this beautiful ‘up and down’ city and all of its character and charm. In addition, a morning shoot out at Half Moon Bay and an evening shoot from the Marin Headlands as well as a trip up to the Mendocino Coast assures that both the landscape, cityscape and street photographer’s need’s will be met! 

The emphasis in this workshop will be on the art of seeing, lens choice, exposure and composition. We’ll cover it all – macro, telephoto, wide angle and basic flash, both indoors and outdoors, from landscapes to people.
