Due to the personal instruction and locations where we will shoot, the event is limited to 10 people. However, the event will be held on 3 different days so there are only 30 spots. While, this event starts at the Canon Live Learning Center in San Francisco, non-Canon shooters are welcome. After initial instruction, we will apply outdoors what was discussed at the Learning Center.

His freelancing business and career at The Bee has allowed him to cover assignments on five continents and his client list is extensive. His work has been published in newspapers, magazines, and annual reports, on billboards and on-line. Dave's portfolio includes architectural, advertising, travel and landscape photography. His popular annual Eastern Sierra fall foliage coverage in California has been featured in the newspaper and web site of The Sacramento Bee since 1979 and more recently on television and The Weather Channel.

For well over 30 years Dave has taught seminars and led photography workshops all over the world. He's
known for his energetic and warm personal style. He enjoys helping photographers enhance their natural
skills and talents.

If you’ve ever wanted to take jaw-dropping blue light landscapes here’s your chance to do just that.
San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and our photo-walk workshop will focus (pun clearly intended) on capturing a perfect twilight cityscape at the exact time for that perfect balance of city buildings and the magical blue light

Join our resident pro photographer and Canon Live Learning instructor, Dave Henry, in a four-hour classroom and photo walk shooting session.

We’ll begin at the Canon Live Learning classroom with a talk on camera settings and compositional ideas then walk to the bay in time for our twilight/blue light cityscape.

During the workshop we’ll be making some great photographs and working on the fundamentals of composition, depth-of-field, exposure and discuss various menu settings that will have an effect on our photographs.

This is also your chance to see through a professional photographer’s eye and learn how to find interesting subjects and plan a compelling photograph.

The class will continue back in the Live Learning classroom with a discussion on the techniques discussed and evaluate our results. Don’t miss this unique walking photography workshop and learn what it takes to make that next big jump in developing your skills as a photographer.

Workshop space is very limited for better accessibility to the instructor so sign up now!
