Each session will break down what is seen as difficult photography concepts and you will leave the session knowing much more about your camera. Bring along your camera for this hands-on workshop and Leonard will walk you through the easy changes you can make to instantly help you take better photos. He will talk about exposure, white balance, using the HDR setting, basic composition and more. Leonard will also highlight free apps that you can download on your cell phone to improve your images.

Leonard’s work is frequently seen in books, magazines, annual reports, brochures, textbooks, in television segments and nationally on the Weather Channel. Some of his work has also been seen on the National Geographic Wild program.
