This workshop is a mixture of nature, landscape, travel, and street photography with 3 intensive days of portrait photography built in. For those who select a more portrait-centric track, Jacquelynn will be working with them in a smaller group every day on things like lighting, posing, finding locations, the business of photography and post-processing. Essentially the entirety of what she does and how she does it broken down across the days.
During the nature and landscape days, both Jan and Jacquelynn will be lending their expertise to participants by focusing on lighting, framing, composition, and capturing the moment. This will be done in small groups and one on one, as needed. Depending on the skill level of the photographer, assistance with camera functions and how to get the most out of your camera will be addresses (please bring your camera manual with you).
With a combined 19 years of experience, Jacquelynn and Jan make an amazing team who, together, will help you elevate your photography no matter your focus or interests. Jacquelynn, a native to the US, speaks English only. Jan, a native to the Czech Republic, speaks both English and Czech fluently.
