Living Waters – Learn to capture the infinite beauty of moving water!

Dear all, 

Spring has sprung, the weather is warm and the days are long. This is the time to go out and improve your photography skills!

I am excited to announce a new series of half day photography workshops with a focus on a particular aspect of landscape photography. These workshops, limited to 6 people, are held in the vicinity of Montreal and are affordably priced. I hope this gives more of you the opportunity to invest in improving your photography skills.

Living Waters – Learn to capture the infinite beauty of moving water!

The first series of workshops will focus on capturing the infinite beauty of moving water. Moving water is an aspect of the landscape where, without exaggeration, you can spend several hours photographing the same area and come away with many distinct, unique and beautiful images. Let me show you how!

Where: Parc des Rapides

Level: Beginner - Intermediate

When: Sunday, May 18th, 2014

Maximum Class Size: 6

Cost: $ 65 

Full payment, through paypal,  is required to confirm your spot on this workshop. This is refundable only if I am able to fill your place with another participant. If you would like to pay by other means, please feel free to contact me.

Your Learning Experience:

 You will have the chance to learn and develop your skills at:

• Visualizing and understanding the many photographic opportunities that flowing water presents.

 • Composition with a focus on textures, shapes and patterns.

• Manually adjusting your camera settings to achieve full control over the creative process.

• Optimizing your Focus, Depth of Field and Sharpness. Achieving full Exposure Control.

• Shooting in RAW and editing your RAW files.


We meet at 3:30 pm at which time I will give you a presentation on how to approach photographing water from an artistic and technical point of view, as well as what to keep in mind when you process your images. Following the presentation we visit Parc des Rapides where, under my guidance, you will learn and practice photographing the myriad aspects of flowing water. We will stay until around 30 minutes after sunset, since the twilight glow can do some real wonders as it reflects off moving water. And, of course, after our outing we will visit a nearby restaurant for a well deserved dinner and drinks, and some socializing!

I will ask you to share your images with me by E-mail or other means, so that I can give you pointers on your processing as well as on what areas, compositional or technical, you may want to work on to improve your skills further. 

What to bring:

 • Digital SLR Camera.

• Memory cards and batteries.

• A quality, stable tripod.

• A quality tripod head which allows for easy adjustment of your camera's position. 

• A set of lenses, especially telephoto, but also wide angle.

• Neutral Density Filters to block light for longer exposures. Polarizer.

    Great! I enjoyed it very much - I even had some some pictures come out okay. A pity we didn't get a decent sunset.

    Bonjour Christoph. This outing sounds so exciting. It's close to my place. Unfortunately I may be in Toronto for this week-end. Don't know yet. Will surely try to make it otherwise.

    Would the event be cancelled in case of rain?

      Hi Patricia, Yes, if conditions are not conducive, I certainly will postpone the event to a later date which is convenient for all the participants.
