Award-winning nature photographer John Reed will return to Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge for his popular photography workshop March 16-17. The workshop will feature a new format of two separate days rather than a two-day workshop as in the past. Saturday’s session includes classroom lectures, and two photography sessions in the field with individual attention from Reed. Learn the fundamentals of digital photography in easy-to-understand terms. This session will focus on exposure, metering, focus, and getting sharp images.
The Sunday workshop is a photo session exploring the mystery and grandeur of the Okefenokee, with subjects such as alligators, pitcher plants, birds, and more. Enjoy a rare opportunity for historical photography at the 1927 Chesser Island Homestead. Participants do not need to attend the Saturday workshop to participate in the Sunday photo session.
