CVPS Workshop: Nature Photography with Willard Clay

October 25, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - October 28, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

Join the Cuyahoga Valley Photo Society (CVPS) and one of the masters of landscape photography, Willard Clay, for a workshop focused on strengthening your nature photography skills and vision during the beautiful autumn season! Willard will share his years of experience to help participants gain a deeper understanding of what makes great nature photography and how to incorporate those elements in their own work.  He will place special attention on teaching about strong composition and understanding and creatively using light. Field sessions will provide the opportunity to apply these ideas and techniques. In addition to classroom lectures and field shooting, Willard will also provide constructive critique sessions to help participants refine their work and expand their understanding of fine nature photography!
