The Fourth Workshop Class's Information

Chad Phillips
July 25, 26, 27 2014
$135 per day or all 3 days for $375

Think outside the lens!

This is the awaited for workshop from Chad Phillips.
Your chance to pick his brain,
get hands on instruction for those burning questions,
figure out just where you might be straying ...
and not be getting the shot you thought you should be getting!
Learn fresh and correctly from the start.

Go RAW!!!!
This is the feature, the place in the camera everything happens. 
This is the setting that is a bit intimidating...
BUT won't be after day 2!!

Get started or a bit of help, using a program the professionals use when editing the shots.

LOTS of hands on direction using what you regularly use for a camera.

Chad is a informative kind of guy,
a geeky techno guru of sorts
and he LOVES to share what he knows!

He is the perfect individual to take technical instruction from.
Patient, funny, thorough!
If he doesn't know the just right answer for your particular dilemma, he will get that answer for the both of you pretty quick.

This is the mini Photography workshop that is going to help you get more familiar with your camera.
Become more confident fiddling around with those dials, and not feel like you are going to break the thing!
Gain a bit more abstraction when looking at what you want to capture.
And bring it all together on the computer!

As you can see this is a JAM PACKED weekend!
