Karlson Topic: Digital Nature/Wildlife Photography Workshop We’ll have an hour or so of instruction and information, then a break, then time for critiques. He will be asking for 2-3 pictures on a memory stick for those who want to do that (The rest of us can look and listen and learn by example). He wants a before processing and after processing sample of what you do. We’ll talk about the changes and how you did it and he’ll guide us through a critique. Huge learning experience.
