On Saturday, I attended a workshop at Southern Connecticut State University hosted by Milford Photo (located in Milford, Connecticut) through their Meetup.com group.  The presenter for the workshop was nature photographer George Lepp.

When I first signed up for the course, I wasn’t 100% sure if I was going to learn much or if it would be a waste of time, since I’ve watched several nature photography technique videos and read several books.  Man was I wrong.  It was an amazing seminar packed with information on different techniques, most of which I had either never heard of or had never tried.  Plus, George was funny, had amazing stories to tell, and kept the material moving at a very good pace.  Overall, I couldn’t have been happier and I learned a lot that I now need to put into practice.

If you have a chance to attend one of George’s presentations, I highly recommend it.  Here are a few of the things he spoke on, although I’m sure I’m forgetting some topics:


Sharp Focus though out an image by taking multiple photos and blending


Macro Techniques

Processing Software

Time Lapse

HD Video

Snow Flake Photography Techniques

African wildlife trips

Cameras weren’t required for the class, but I was planning to take my G12 anyway – but unfortunately I forgot it, so no photos from the class (kind of ironic, isn’t it?).

(Note:  Thanks to George Lepp for the use of his photograph for this post.  I should have added that he’s a super nice guy as well as an excellent photographer.  Thanks George!)
