Virtual! Allerton Photography Workshop Part II

Explore the beauty of Allerton Park — through the eyes of 4 photographers! Join us as Allerton Park staff members (and wonderful photographers!) teach you their most used photography tips, tricks, and techniques:

– Wedding and Conference Coordinator, Fraya, will cover her favorite methods in capturing gorgeous landscape photos.
– Security and Set-Up team member, Dustin, will tell you more about his approach to breathtaking night photography.
– Natural Areas Manager, Alex, will explain how he shoots birds, bugs, and other nature-filled images.
– Marketing Coordinator, Myisha, will demonstrate a few ways she likes to capture people when shooting portraits.

We will venture through different Park locations as they cover composition, posing, lighting, and so much more! This event is perfect for any level photographer, whether you are shooting with a phone or a DSLR!
