Sunday, September 27, 2020
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Be a part of an autumn tradition in the North Country – observing and photographing fall color! This class will provide a one hour orientation on techniques and equipment utilization while in the field. We’ll then take our gear into the Superior National Forest and look for numerous vistas, unique perspectives, cozy vignettes and macro work. With luck we may come across some forest critters as a bonus!
Bring lunch, camera and gear; manual, all lenses, tripod, remote release, circular polarizer (if you have it), and rubber boots. Dress for the weather. COVID precautions will be observed.
About the Instructor: Ken Hupila has been chasing wildlife around and enjoying the outdoors in northern Minnesota for over 60 years. He took his first wildlife image in 1964 and has been working on his craft ever since.

This class is for all of you photographers who want to improve your photographs...and who doesn't? Whether you are just beginning or deeply experienced, this class will help you to better understand Adobe’s popular photography editing program, Lightroom Classic.
All photographers need to organize, edit and share their photography. Lightroom can do it all (well almost all).This is a hands-on class. We will explore many of the most important tools in Lightroom. Key topics include but are not limited to Import, Organize and Rank photos, Basic and Intermediate Editing Tools, Lightroom workflow, Adding Watermarks and Exporting photos and much much more.
No experience with Lightroom Classic needed. Learning will be enhanced if you are able to use your computer with Lightroom Classic installed. There will be plenty of time for your questions. I’ll provide sample images to work on.
This is live Zoom class, so you will able to interact with the instructor, Les Conrad. You will receive the Zoom invitation to join the class after you register and 24 hours before the start of class.
