Camera Obedience School

Remember, some of the most important photographs in history were made with just one or two buttons.

This casual presentation is especially appropriate for beginning photographers. There will be time for open conversation, questions and refreshments. Please RSVP early as each monthly session is limited to 12 participants.

Cost is $50. per person.

February Photo Walk : Cataract Creek Waterfalls

Photos by Michael Maloney

Let’s try this one again…fingers crossed that we have a wet winter!

Take a hike with Michael from Camera West in Walnut Creek on this photo walk alongside beautiful Cataract Creek on the north slope of Mt Tamalpais in Marin County. The winter rains provide plenty of water for tiny Cataract Creek producing a series of small waterfalls that drop through a forest canopy of redwood, Douglas fir, oak, and maple trees.

This photo walk is for photographers of all abilities. Only requirements are a camera that will allow you to manually set the shutter speed, and a sturdy tripod. Michael will show you how to photograph moving water and offer some tips to get that silky smooth look to the water.

This photo walk is limited to just 12 photographers so sign up early!
