UPDATE: Living History Farms 5th Annual Photography Day is this Saturday, Sept 18,  9:00am-5:00pm at Living History Farms in Urbandale, Iowa (LHF website).

Throughout the day, a total of over 22 instructors from multiple states will be teaching 40-minute workshops at 15 different locations around the museum – that’s a total of 56 workshop sessions all in one day!

A PDF of the overall schedule can be found here:   2010 Photography Day Class Schedule.

I’ll be teaching four sessions throughout the day, all in the vicinity of the lovely “1850 Farm” exhibit:

10:00am – Nature Photography Using Natural Light

11:00am – Using 4-in-1 Reflectors to Control Light

1:00pm – Mastering the Meter in Your Camera

3:00pm – Nature Photography Using Natural Light (repeat of morning session)

When not running a session, the other instructors and I will be roaming the LHF grounds and available to answer your photography questions or help tackle challenges regarding photos you’re trying to create at this lovely outdoor museum.  We’ll be easily identifiable in light-blue polo shirts with camera logos, so don’t be shy – hit us up with your photography questions!

As I mentioned in my earlier post on this event, photographers of all skill levels are welcome to participate – the photography workshops are free with paid admission to the Living History Farms museum!  We’re expecting over 1,000 photographers of all skill levels to participate, so plan to join us!

The event is hosted and sponsored by Des Moines camera store Christian Photo.  Nikon, Canon, and Tamron will be on hand with gear to demo and loan for usage during the event (bring a credit card and check out that lens or camera body you’ve been drooling over!).

If you’re a photographer in the upper midwest region, this is the place to be Saturday!  See you there!
