The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm puts on a spectacular display of tulips each year which cannot be missed by any photography enthusiast. We'll produce stunning imagery of the rows of multicolored tulips in full bloom. Join us in the tulip fields during photographer's special entry times at sunrise and sunset!

This is a seasonal group photo tour offered 3 times yearly with a maximum of 6 participants. Book early!

What You'll Learn:

This photo tour does not deep dive into basic camera settings. If you are interested in learning camera basics, F-Stops and Shutter Speeds 101 is for you. However, we will discuss the exposure triangle (aperture, shutter speed and ISO) and how to apply it when shooting cherry blossoms at sunrise.

 

If you are not already shooting in manual mode, I will show you how to make the transition easy. We'll cover how to expose for the highlights in your scene in order to capture dramatic light. I review center point focusing, metering and white balance. We review how lighting direction and quality can transform your image. 

We also review camera settings and exposure for shooting a landscape at sunrise using a tripod. If we are lucky, we'll have an early morning view of Mt Hood! Composition, perspective and what is "good light" are discussed. We practice a variety of techniques for shooting creative flower photography.

At the end of the photo tour, you will be sent an invite into Portland Photo Tour Forum. This is a group open only to those who have participated in a Portland Photo Tour and are interested in learning, inspiring and having fun with photography. Tag me on the images you post in the forum and I will give you feedback!
