Please see the description below for the additional workshops in this Youth Winter Workshop Series


Day 1 – Blowing Rocks Preserve – Thursday, Dec 27, 2018

Students will meet at the Centre to review techniques that might be helpful for the upcoming location shoot.  Before heading out to Blowing Rocks Preserve, students will have the opportunity to practice their photography skills by photographing the crashing waves and geysers that form against the craggy Anastasia limestone, that makes this beach so special. With high tide expected to be around noon, it should be a perfect day to capture the amazing geysers that can reach as high as 50 feet.

Day 3 – Grassy Waters Preserve, Capturing The Everglades – Thursday, Jan. 3, 2019

Adventure and the Everglades are closer than you think!

This one day workshop is an opportunity for your child, ages 9-17, to join our staff photographer for a trek out to West Palm Beach’s famous Grassy Waters Preserve. Together they’ll explore this extraordinary 20-square mile native wetland and wildlife sanctuary in this beautiful outdoor photographic experience.

Our staff will teach your son or daughter all areas of nature photography from the basics of image-taking to adding creative techniques such as fill-flash.

Back in the classroom, students will receive a critique of their work, plus create a portfolio of their best photographs. Our staff will help your child capture dramatic nature images, and make sure he or she has a great time doing it!

Day 4 – Black & White Photography – Friday, Jan. 4, 2019

Discover the fun of creating black and white images!

In this hands-on class, we will begin by looking at some of the masters of black and white film photography. While exploring what today’s digital black and white masters are doing differently. Your young photographer will have an opportunity to go on a photo shoot and use our state-of-the-art computer lab where we will explore a variety of techniques and software to convert your original photographs into black and white.

We will teach this class using the latest software including:

  • Lightroom
  • Photoshop
  • Silver Effects Pro 2

Students will need a USB Flash Drive to save their work.
