  • 200 US dollars
  • DeTour State Forest Campground

Service Description

Beginning May 20th ending May 23rd 2022 - This trip takes us to the Upper Peninsula at the DeTour Forest State Park Campground where I will be teaching the fundamentals to photography, on the beaches of Lake Huron during sunsets, sunrises, and at night where I will share some best practices for photographing the night sky with the Milky Way galaxy on the horizon. I will also be teaching the basics and best practices for an introduction to wildlife photography as well. This workshop is for all skill levels to enjoy, as it will be a 3 night tent-camping stay on the campgrounds. Bring food to be cooked over campfire. We will all be sharing one good-sized campsite. Expect comfortable days, but chilly nights. Three nights will allow us plenty of time to make sure we come away with images to cherish. Astrophotography is dependent on weather and cloud cover; this is why three nights are on the schedule so we might catch at least one clear night to photograph the milky way. Wildlife photography opportunities include (but don't guarantee) the following: Great Blue Heron, Belted Kingfisher, White Tail Deer, Warblers and other songbirds, Otter, Merganser, Bald Eagle, Raven, Hawks, Hummingbird, and more. Date chosen in hopes of timing spring migration for this area. Camping in late May can still be very cold! Be prepared with proper clothing and camp equipment to stay warm in the field and in the tent. Cost: $200 per person Group Size Limit - 6 Required of You: - Camping tent/sleeping bag and accessories (car camping OK) - Camera kit (wide angle lens preferred for landscapes and astrophotography - e.g. 18-55mm kit is okay!) - Tripod (necessary as we will be doing long exposures at night) - Headlamp, preferably with a red-light function to preserve night vision - Food! This is a Bring-Your-Own-Food (and beverages) event. Please come ready to feed yourself for all three days and nights - Transportation to and from the workshop
