Photographic Workshops with Mary Cornelius

 My latest news is that I have planned a few workshops for this summer.   The Wild Turkey Farm and Ringside at the Horse Show Workshops are tailored to the amateur hobbyist who loves exploring photography and would like to improve skills and personal vision.
 I also have a more advanced workshop for professionals and advanced amateurs who are interested in photographing lifestyle and senior portraits. With and without horses. 

A one day workshop for amateur hobbyists at the fabulous Wild Turkey Farm in Wilsonville, Oregon.
Date:  June 1, 2013
Classroom instruction. Photo shoot opportunities. Raise your photography to the next level. Workshop led by veteran international photographer Mary Cornelius.

This is an opportunity to photograph some of the beautiful Holsteiner horses that are bred on this world class private farm. Weather permitting, you will find yourself in a beautiful pasture, camera at the ready while frisky foals are turned out to play for you.
Indoor class time will include lectures and slide show examples of ways to raise your photographic skills. Time allowing, we will be sharing and discussing images that were created on the day.

Lots of Q & A opportunity during the photo sessions and the class room.

Feedback, personal goals and questions are welcome as part of your inquiry!

Participants should have a basic working knowledge of an SLR camera and a lens suitable for photographing horses at a distance. 70 - 200 mm lens is optimal.
Advice is available about renting a suitable lens for your camera if you do not have one. Just ask!

Emphasis will be on using your camera in manual mode so that you can learn to better control your image quality in different situations. Settings for stopping action and adjustments to make.

Pricing and more details will be coming right up as planning is in process.
