Outdoor and nature photography workshop at Shekinah Centre – participant images

The outdoor and nature photography workshop at Shekinah Retreat Centre was  a great success. A full slate of ten people showed up and patiently listened while I was presenting the introductory tutorials.

Here is what some of the participants have to say about their experience:

– “Thank you for the very educational Photo Workshop…. I learned so much…. just wish my brain could retain all of it. Everything was wonderful, the relaxed class room time, the supper, my only regret is that we didn’t have more time to practise shooting what we learned.”

– “Thanks again for freely sharing your wealth of knowledge. It was much appreciated and of tremendous benefit.”

– “I enjoyed the workshop. It wasn’t a marathon for me – just a good learning experience. Maybe next time we’ll see more clouds, birds or colour.”

– “Enjoyed the workshop; have tried to using the polarizing filter. Sometimes I do like the results, sometimes not so much.”

Shekinah Centre is located in the aspen parkland region, right on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. Fall colours were entering their peak that weekend; after dinner we wondered outdoors to soak up the scenery and practice what we learned during the afternoon. Three participants sent me a few images and I am posting a small selection here. The photo credits go to Howard Giles, Hilda Noton and Hans Holtkamp (check out Hans’ fine art bronzes culptures and a selection of photographs).
