Charleston in the Spring

Field Workshop

With Kate Silvia and Kenny McKeithan

March 27-29, 2022

Begins March 27, 2022 at 8:30 a.m.

Ends March 29, 2022 at Noon.


Discounts for CNPA/LHCC members.

Pre-registration available.

This workshop and tour is for those wishing to spend all their time in the field with us. We’ll be covering topics including composition, light, depth of field, lens choice, macro, landscapes, and so much more. The best place to practice these techniques is in the field. We’ll take mid day breaks on Monday and Tuesday to get ready for evening and sunset opportunities. You’ll be led by 2 experienced instructors who live here full time and know the area well. Our goal is to get you to the right place at the right time and answer any questions you may have along the way.

***This workshop will NOT include a visit to the Boneyard Beach at Botany Bay due to the tides. The other spring workshop will visit this location.***
