Sometimes during a photography workshop, when we find the photography students are happily snapping away, we may grab a few shots of them at work or the environment we’re in. On last year’s Badlands, Buicks and Old Buildings workshop, I was armed only with our point-n-shoot camera, a Panasonic Lumix LX-5, and snagged a few shots during our visit to an autowrecker’s yard. Our group gets private access to this gem of rusty relics, and we spend a good few hours in there discovering pixel treasures. For fun, I decided to work the square aspect ratio on the LX-5. Here’s the results!
We still have space in the Badlands, Buicks and Old Buildings workshop but the date is coming up fast! You can read some of the nice things past participants have said about this event here. Along with old cars, we visit Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park and tour the prairie roads winding through crops and massive wind turbines. And of course we visit old buildings and other hidden relics on the prairie.
Next up: this coming weekend’s photo workshop in Prince George, B.C.! We follow our ‘Photocram’ format and stuff in loads of learning in a short blast of photographic goodness. These workshops offer big bang for your buck ($250 for a weekend course…seriously????), so if you aren’t able to join us at one of our destination workshops, consider a Photocram event next time we’re in your area. Or maybe even see you at Prince George…? Talk to Debbie to see if there’s still space. If you can’t make it to Prince George, then maybe head up to Edmonton in September for our Creative Landscape Photography course at the Paul Burwell School of Photography.
