Location, location, location. Come enjoy the beauty of autumn at Gibbs Garden, a very special and unique location for nature photography. Veteran's Day weekend is typically one of the best times for color at the garden, with vivid reds, oranges and yellows, blending with statues, ponds, walking paths. (The ponds and the colors make for some fabulous reflections.)

Old Car City is also a very unique location for shooting graphics, colors, and details of a multitude of old cars, trucks, and buses. The collection of vehicles is always changing, so even if you have visited Old Car City in the past, it's always worth another visit.

Combined with these two awesome locations, Janet and Les will be instructing participants on how to improve their images through composition, graphic design principles, and post-processing, both in the field and in the classroom. You'll come away as a better photographer, and with images that you won't capture anywhere else except at Gibbs Garden and Old Car City in the autumn season.
