The location will be Doug Hansgate’s studio to keep cost down, only $15.00 for the night. We are limiting the attendance to 140 people. 154 Christiana Street, North Tonawanda, NY 14120

“As photographers, we all look at the world and see things uniquely. We often move too fast and miss what is right in front of us. Canon Explorer of Light, Ken Sklute will share his perspective, teach you to see and help you to be more in touch with your creative vision. We routinely pass magnificent locations without stopping because we are not really seeing what is there. Sklute will explain how he goes about finding locations, subjects and photographic environments that yield award winning results. Together, we will explore creative ways of composing. You will learn to see light that carves your subject with grace, depth and dimension. Sklute will motivate and ignite your passion, enabling you to take your craft to a new level of excellence. Handouts will be made available.” All levels.
