Event Description

One of RBG’s Courses & Workshops

Join Matthew Tiegs at Princess Point with your camera to catch the sunset! You will learn the settings and techniques to improve your sunrise and sunset photos. Discuss planning, preparation, shooting and post-processing to make the most of your time in the field and discuss editing your final images. This program includes 1-hour of discussion, plus 2-hours of finding the right composition and shooting during the golden hour leading into sunset, and into the blue hour after sunset. Bring a folding chair for the discussion, your camera, and a headlamp or flashlight.
