An Artistry Techniques Workshop”

Friday & Saturday, June 2 – June 3, 2017

at Mountain Lens Retreat

Hendersonville, NC



Suggested Experience Level: Advanced Beginner to Advanced. Minimally, know and be able to use your camera functions and the recommended accessories (see Field Equipment Required, below) and have a command of basic composition principles. Please send three of your favorite images the week before the class. (Instructions will be sent upon registration.) We will have a sharing Friday evening.

Field Equipment Required: DSLR or Mirrorless DSLR Camera and, if you have one, an Infrared-converted camera (no point-and-shoots or iPhones!); tripod; filters including polarizer and neutral density filters (a must!); and extension tubes or close-up filters, short and long lenses and a macro lens if you have one.

Classroom Equipment Desired: Your laptop computer or iPad for note taking and/or processing. The classroom is equipped with four computers, but also two Apple Cinema Displays that can be connected to laptops.

Software: A complete list of suggested software will be supplied the week prior to the workshop. All are available as 30 day trials, so no need to buy until you’ve tried. The computers on site are equipped with the software so only those wishing to use their own computers need secure the software.
