Bluebells are among the early spring wildflowers you'll find blooming among the tree trunks at Bull Run Park. They create a beautiful scene as they carpet the forest floor...and you might even spot the occasional pink bluebell. You'll also find other early spring blossoms such as spring beauties, blue violets, trout lilies and dutchman's breeches. All these flowers are a delight for macro photography. We'll look for way to photograph these delicate flowers in creative and even abstract compositions.

During the workshop session Corey will share photo tips, demonstrate shooting techniques and offer ideas for how to capture your best shots. He can help you with camera settings, as well as your creative vision. You'll also have the opportunity to receive immediate feedback on your technique and compositions.

Workshops give you the opportunity to put your skills into practice, as well as learn photo techniques for creating images with impact. A small group size allows everyone to receive individual attention.

All instruction for this workshop takes place in the field. There will not be an indoor lecture/presentation.
