Photograph the Everglades...

Have you visited Florida's Everglade's National Park? Winter provides a wonderful opportunity to photograph a wide variety of bird species, including Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Anhinga, Glossy Ibis, Cormorants, White Ibis, Black-Crowned Night Herons, and many more animals including alligators. The Everglades boasts some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country, perfect for the photographer in search of unique imagery.

I'm pleased to announce an upcoming workshop in Florida's exquisite Everglades National Park, January 21 & 22, 2012 - mark your calendar! I'll be co-leading the workshop with professional photographer and expert guide Maxis Gamez. This weekend workshop has a maximum of 12 participants for personalized instruction and attention. You'll come away with unforgettable images!

Navigating the Everglades and finding the top locations to photograph is key to a successful photographic excursion to the park. Maxis Gamez is an experienced Everglades guide, and artistic bird photographer, getting you to the most active locations at the right time of day. Click here to check out Maxis' informative website to see how he creates elegant photographs of birds and landscapes.

Along with bird photography, you will learn how to create dramatic story-telling images through the art and technique of HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagery. By combining a variety of exposures through HDR processing software, you can create high impact images with exceptional dynamic range. I'll cover techniques for combining HDR images, single image HDR, and also artistic enhancements with plug-ins and filters.
