For photographers just getting started in digital photography and those wanting an in-depth overview of workflow choices, this workshop will provide an opportunity to work hands-on with three noted and knowledgeable photographers and to clarify the complexities of this often-confusing topic. Each instructor brings a wealth of experience in digital photography and is an organized and proven workshop leader.
