Learning to See and Think Creatively ~ Dan Ballard $35.00/Photowalk/Wor­ksh­op

  • This location is shown only to members

Dan Ballard is back.  Rescheduled from snow day in February!

Join us in Wash Park for a fun afternoon of shooting and learning how to see and think creatively! We will spend time walking around the park doing assignments designed to open your mind and help you see the world in a different way. Dan will be giving several short lectures along with the assignments to help you understand the concepts he uses to create strong images. He will also answer any questions that you have about photography and taking better images.

This class will be suitable for all levels of photographers and will be fun first and foremost.

The afternoon will be open to 20 participants from the Front Range Meet Up Group. I expect we will sell out fast!!

We will be meeting in front of the boat house near the parking lot at Downing St. and Exposition Ave. There is parking there, but I imagine it will be mostly full. There is street parking in the area. Please arrive early to find parking.

You do not need to bring a tripod unless you want to.

    This workshop gave some different ideas on how to approach "making a picture" ... so that I look at everything as an opportunity to tell a store using light. An awesome experience that truly gave me a new set of tools which which to evaluate possible photographic opportunities.
