Sharpen your photo skills, get to know your camera, and expand your artistic eye in beautiful Montana de Oro State Park. Starting with a morning hike through one of the most panoramic paths on the central coast, you'll how to work with light and shadows to capture creative compositions of the expansive coastal landscapes. In-classroom instruction will follow at the Buen Dia Store in downtown SLO. You will work with your RAW images to set up a solid digital workflow and master photo editing techniques to produce an 13x19 photo print you will take home with you the very same day!

Photo prints are printed using 100% Eco-friendly cotton paper and vegetable-based ink. 

Workshops are kept small, at a maximum of 8 people, so all the participants can get one-on-one time with the instructors. All workshops are open to photo enthusiasts of every experience level, however we recommend having prior knowledge of basic camera technique for the Landscape Photography Hike.
