October Field Trip: Fall Color along US 2 Wednesday, October 16

Reprising a successful field trip we had a couple of years ago, we’re going on a day-long road trip to Leavenworth. We’ll meet at the Heerschap’s house at 9 am (1818 N 198th in Shoreline) to organize cars and head out from there. The itinerary will more or less be dictated by what we see, stopping at some of the most iconic spots listed in Henry’s article elsewhere in this newsletter. We’ll have lunch at Gustav’s in Leavenworth (617 US Highway 2,, maybe take a little time around town before we head back. Traffic permitting, we should be back in Shoreline between 4 and 5 pm.

Morning Presentation: “Becoming a More Creative Photographer”

One of the most common requests Dave hears at lectures is “How can I become a more creative photographer?
Since 2001, Dave has mentored over a hundred photographers to achieve that and more. His presentation explores ideas and examples of how emerging and pro photographers have used their knowledge, innate strengths and even personality to greatly improve their images. Dave also touches on experimental photography and ways to create image stories that reveal vision, authenticity, beauty and meaning. Look into your archives and feel free to bring a related question.

Afternoon Presentation: “The Art of Travel Photography”

Join photographer Dave Julian to learn the art of making truly compelling travel photographs. Dave draws upon his own images to illustrate topics that include logistics, composition, intention, timing and storytelling. Dave also reveals his choices of photographic gear, prepares for a trip, how he travels light and handles his images while away and upon returning home. Feel free to bring related questions.
