Prerequisites
Participants should have a working knowledge of exposure (f/stop and shutter speed) and know how to operate their equipment. Please bring a laptop computer with a RAW processor and image editing software to prepare your images for critique. Film shooters are encouraged to borrow a digital SLR so that they can have images for critique sessions – and maximize the workshop’s learning experience.

General itinerary
Each day’s schedule varies according to which location we visit that day, how long we shoot and what the weather conditions are. We could photograph all day if conditions are right and then have more class time the following day. Questions and problems will be addressed in the field whenever possible, which is the most effective way to learn nature and landscape photography. 

Sunday* night at 5 pm
Opening night presentation, Q&A’s, orientation (it would be a good idea to have dinner on your own before the opening meeting)* except Acadia (begins Wednesday and ends Sunday) and Eastern State Penitentiary (a weekend workshop)

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Photograph sunrise and/or early morning and late afternoon and/or sunset – and whenever the light is right. There will be presentations and critiques during the day.

Thursday
Photograph in the morning or have class time; discussion and final thoughts over breakfast. We should be finished by checkout time. 

Personal critique service
To continue your learning beyond the workshop, all participants may add three months of Tony’s personal photo critiques, via email, for just $600. With this service, you’ll receive helpful, informative critiques of 20 of images per month, as well as liberal email support for questions and advice.
