Spring is by far, the BEST time to visit Charleston, SC. The majority of workshop will be held in the field to make the most of your time here. We'll be heading to the best locations at the perfect times around the Charleston area. This is going to be so much more than a "tour". I'll be helping you with your camera settings, exposure, understanding the histogram, and many more technical aspects of photography. We'll have all the time we need to concentrate on composition and light. This is the area that most photographers struggle with, and yet, spend the least amount of time practicing. Weather will dictate our exact itinerary. All attendees will receive a FREE copy of my E-Book "Composition For The Landscape Photographer"  Join me for an extended weekend of fun and learning in one of the most beautiful locations in the southeast.
