This Digital Darkroom workshop is a new offering for the refuge and will focus on digital photography editing as well as some hands-on photography on the refuge. This workshop will take place in the Environmental Education classroom and around the Suwannee Canal Recreation Area from 7:30 a.m-4:00 p.m. The workshop includes instruction by local nature photographer and Photoshop instructor, John Reed, with an emphasis on “Digital Darkroom” photo editing lesson with a live demonstration of the most used editing techniques! Be sure to bring your laptop if you have one, to follow along as you learn the basics, and most popular photo editing techniques. You can choose to work on the photos you take that morning or bring some of your favorites on a USB. If you don’t have a laptop or photo editing software, no problem! Come and take notes for future use at another computer or with different editing software. You are required to bring your own camera and photographic equipment. No matter what experience level you are, you’re bound to learn something new during this workshop. Come with your questions and see how to make your images sing!
