The Workshop

Over the four days of indoor and outdoor studio training, you will create a highly artistic image that pleases you.

In this workshop, Jean-Sébastien Veilleux will guide you through creative photographic exploration. The workshop will focus on nature, particularly, the landscapes surrounding Saint-Jean-Port-Joli.

Your exploration will include single lens reflex camera techniques and the tricks of processing digital photos. You will also learn notions of composition and aesthetics, using nature's possibilities as inspiration.

Participants will be able to develop their "photographic sense" and take the time to build a powerful image.
