The objective of this workshop will be to tell the story of life on a farm through people and food. We will spend the day at the Lyons Farmette and will discuss the basics of photography and camera gear, how to shoot in natural light, the challenges of shooting on location and how to be prepared for them. We will tour the Farmette where we will be photographing the farmers and the food they grow. We will also learn about post-processing and workflow and review group images at the end of the day.
