UPDATE: Due to the concerns of our members and guests, the IPPA board has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Photography Retreat.  We feel it is in the best interest of the health and safety of all involved.  We are still going strong and riding out this roller coaster.  We are here for you with advice and to answer questions as we all manage through this together.

Refunds have been issued.  Please reach out if you have not seen that come through.

Join us for this PPA Merited Class!  This program will take you on a Natural Light and OCF journey from the open scene you walk up to... all the way to a finished portrait.  Carl will go through his thought process of why he chose the location.  He will show usable light within the area and how to pose within that light.  He will share how his thoughts for the finished print evolve from vision of reality with darkroom techniques that anyone can master.  

Carl's goal is to open your mind to the thought process that goes on when creating an image for both PPA print competition and for your client.  He will discuss light, posing within the light, color harmony, composition, and more of the 12 elements of an artistic image in terms od client work and PPA Print Competition.  

When you leave this program, you will find new backgrounds in places you would normally walk by.  You will see usable light, depth, and dimensions like never before.  You will understand when and how to work without strobes.  You will know how to create emotion in your work and how to use psychology to your advantage.  Yes.  It is a lot to take in, but you can't help but learn with the real stories, straight forward explanations and demonstrations of each and every detail.
