Lightfinders Workshop – Oregon Coast

lightfinders oregon photographer workshop


Get ready for this!!!

For the first time ever, Rachel Nielsen Photography and Sallykate Photography are teaming up on the spectacular Oregon Coast to host a workshop all about finding the light, in any and all lighting scenarios!  Full sun?  Clouds?  Storms?  Rain?  Dark?  Haze?  No problem.  Come spend the day with us while we hit the beach, seeking, and FINDING the light and utilizing it to its full potential.

Here’s what you can expect:

July 15 noon:  Meet and greet, followed by trip to the beach (YES in the middle of the day!) to find the light in the trickiest of situations.  Learn to assess and evaluate your available light, and how to ROCK any kind of light in a number of scenarios.  We will utilize angles, lenses, modifiers, and even the shadows, to create artistic compositions that go beyond the safe and ordinary.

July 15 afternoon:  Following this shoot, we’ll head to the gorgeous beach house in Neskowin, Oregon.  There, Rachel and Sally will walk you through editing demonstrations covering clean editing, batch processing and workflow tips, as well as creative editing and plug-ins and overlays for both Lightroom and Photoshop.

A catered dinner will be served.

July 15 evening:  Let’s head back out to the beach for a beautiful golden hour shoot at Proposal Rock!
