So, you just bought a new camera and you’ve decided that the instruction manual isn’t your way of learning and you just want to get out and start taking pictures. What do you do? 

Or, have you ever wished you could be standing next to a professional photographer and ask their help in taking a great picture? 

Well, here’s your chance to do just that in a small group. 

Join photojournalist Dave Henry, in a four-hour photo walk along San Francisco’s picturesque Embarcadero. 

During the workshop we’ll be making some great photographs but the focus of the class is to work on the fundamentals of lighting, composition, depth-of-field, selective focus and discuss menu selections that have an effect on our photographs. 

This is also your chance to see through a photographer’s eye and learn how to find interesting subjects. 

You will benefit greatly from Dave’s field experience as a roving travel photographer. During his first nine years at The Sacramento Bee, he supplied travel photography for stories all over the world for its Sunday Travel Section. 

Don’t miss this unique walking photography workshop and learn what it takes to make that next big jump in developing your skills as a photographer.
