The second part of the workshop will include a critique of your photos and editing instruction in LR/PS

This workshop should be a fun one for ALL skill levels from beginner to advanced/professional.  Ideally you should have the following gear to maximize your learning experience.

  • DSLR camera
    • Ability to make up to 30 second exposures
  • Tripod
    • Tripods are a must for stable and sharp images.
  • Flash might be helpful, but in now way is necessary
  • Neutral density filter would be helpful to help slow down exposures for longer, silkier water.  A polarizer will also do the trick.


Mike uses Lightroom and Photoshop for editing of photographs.  The second part of the workshop will involve class participants submitting images for Mike's critique.  

Mike will also demonstrate his editing technique for images taken in this workshop.  Mile will demonstrate and teach by using Lightroom and Photoshop.  If participants are not familiar with these softwares, free trials can be downloaded from the Adobe.com website.
