Nature Photography Workshop at Bloedel Reserve

October 11, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Join photographer David Perry for an all day workshop where you will explore the art of telling stories through pictures. This workshop is open to photo enthusiasts of varying abilities, with cameras ranging from iPhones to fancy SLRs. But given that the focus will be on learning to capture more evocative images and then weave them into a collection that tells a larger story, each participant should already be able to operate their cameras proficiently so that they aren’t wrestling against their cameras the whole time and are instead able to focus on seeing great pictures and telling a story with them.

Cost: $120 for members, $135 for non-members.

Call (206) 842-7631 to register.
