Full April Weekend of Classes and Workshops Coming Up

TUR06224-Edit.jpg

Hello everyone. Thanks for following me.

Spring is upon us, flowers are sprouting and blooming, grass is starting to green up and the temps are slowly climbing. That means we are approaching one of our busiest weekends of the spring.

Next weekend, April 5, 6 and 7th, I’ll be doing multiple workshops and classes, and topped off on Saturday evening by our 2nd Annual Spring Photography Exhibition and Show.

This time a change of location. I’ve been doing my classes and exhibitions in Front Royal, and for this spring weekend we will be in downtown Winchester. The workshops of course will be outdoors, hopefully in the National Park (if its fully open by then). We are super excited to visit our friend and fans in Winchester and cannot wait to see you all.

Here is a run down of the full weekend. Registrations for the classes and workshops are still open and can be done HERE!!

Friday, April 5th:

I have 2 events this evening, both are outdoor workshops, so weather permitting.

  1. Sunset Photography Workshop with me in the Shenandoah National Park (or other location picked by me if the park is closed) - in this workshop we get out the tripods and shoot the long exposures of one or more of my favorite sunset spots. Location of the workshop will be determined by the weather as always. I’ll be there to give you tips and tricks, read the weather, get you framed up with composition and more. Cost $30 (spots available)

  2. Astrophotography Workshop with me - I always try to have this one in closer proximity to where we do the sunset one, so I can make it there and people can join both if they like. This is always fun as I help you with long exposure astrophotography. I help with tips and tricks, framing the shot, different techniques and we may even do a little light painting if you like. Cost $30 (spots available)

Saturday, April 6th

  1. Photography Class - Composing Your Shot 9:00am - Cost $25 (spots available) - This is one of the fundamental classes that I recommend to EVERYONE. Composition is one of the 2 most important aspects in taking good photos, and this class will instantly make your photos better. Good for any type of camera, even phones.

  2. Photography Class - Reading the Light - 10:30am -Cost $25 (spots available) - This is the other fundamental class that I recommend to EVERYONE. Lighting goes hand in hand with composition to create the photo. Without understand and being able to read the light, your photos will not excel, and you will not get better as a photographer. Good for any type of camera, even phones.

  3. Photography Class - Shooting in Manual Mode Part 1 - 12:30pm - Cost $45 (spots available) This is my most popular class, I call it the money class because this class separates the photographers from everyone else. If you have a camera that has manual settings and you are shooting everything in automatic mode, then this is the class for you. I teach you with in class instruction, hands on learning and a 30-45 minute outdoor session on how to get off of manual mode and get the real power out of your camera. You’ll learn ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed and more. I go through real world scenarios to teach you my thought process in figuring out what settings to start with.

  4. Photography Class - Shooting in Manual Mode Part 2 - 3:00pm - Cost $45 (spots available) This class is the more advanced followup to the Part 1 class above. Learn more advanced techniques like long exposures, high speed shooting, low light shooting, exposure and focus stacking and more.

  5. 2nd Annual Scott Turnmeyer Spring Photography Exhibitions/Show - Cost FREE - View on our Event Page - Come by and show me your support by visiting us for the Exhibition. No cost to the public, and no buy pressure at all. Come in a view my work first hand, printed and mounted. There will be well over 100 different photos of mine from around the area (and world), and I’ll be there to talk about how I get them, tell stories about our escapades, talk photography or answer questions. Of course, everything will be for sale as well, and items will range in pricing from $5 - $500, and everything in between. Guaranteed to have something for everyone. There will be door prizes given away as well!!!! We’ll have prints in paper, mounted on foam and METAL (Gorgeous), holiday cards, ornaments, puzzles and a ton more.

Sunday, April 7th:

  1. Sunrise Photography Workshop with me in the Shenandoah National Park (or other location picked by me if the park is closed) - in this workshop we get out the tripods and shoot the long exposures of one or more of my favorite sunset spots. Location of the workshop will be determined by the weather as always. I’ll be there to give you tips and tricks, read the weather, get you framed up with composition and more. Cost $30 (spots available)

Thank so much, and we sincerely appreciate the following and support of our fans. We hope to see all of you next weekend either at a class, workshop or especially our Exhibition/Show. Please check out all of our events HERE on our Facebook page for location information and other upcoming events.
