Back in late January, we hosted an Eco-photo Excursion by Great Lakes Photo Tours, with Mark Carlson and Bob Grzesiak. It was a rather overcast and somewhat snowy day, but our leaders were very excited: this kind of light makes for the best photography, they said.
After 2-3 hours indoors, learning about equipment, the value of a reflector and a good tripod, and how to set up one’s shots using the rule of threes, we headed out onto the Dahlem trails to put what we had learned to the test.
By the time 5:00 rolled by, we were ready to head in. This was our final stop, just as the sun was peeking out. Here you see the obligatory photo of a photographer taking a photo of a photographer taking a photo.
All in all, it was a very informative day. If you have the chance to take a course with these gentlemen, I highly recommend it. It’s ideal for novice and advanced photographers both – everyone can pick up at least a few tips.
