Women’s Photography Weekend, Naples, Florida

Includes photography instruction, two nights lodging and meals. 
$699 single occupancy.  We are staying at an adorable Airbnb with a "Superhost" status. We are not sharing rooms.

This weekend is designed to give you a good foundation in photography through short classes and lots of hands-on practice. It’s limited to only 3 participants so you’ll get lots of individual attention.

You will learn to shoot in manual, take sunset pictures of the pier, have a private boat trip to photograph the Dome Homes on Cape Romano*, Photoshop layers, textures and blending modes, on and off camera flash with a model, HDR (High Dynamic Range) and night photography.

The Understand Photography minivan will transport us to our outings. 
* Itinerary subject to change due to weather.

Detailed itinerary: 
Friday evening: 6:00 pm. Learn to shoot in manual and really, really understand it. As with all our classes, Peggy simplifies the technical aspects of photography to make it easier to learn and understand. We’ll have an hour and a half class, then hop in the van with our tripods to take sunset pictures of the famous Naples pier or the Lely Freedom Horses.

Night photography on 5th Ave S. Learn how to do streaking lights, silky water and HDR! 

Saturday morning it’s up and out! Depending on the weather, we’ll take a private boat trip to photograph the Cape Romano dome homes. The dome homes were built in the 1980s and are slowly being washed out to sea. We’ll have a little beach time on this mostly deserted island to photograph, swim, relax and have a picnic.

2:30-3:30 pm. Photoshop class. Bring your laptop and we’ll work on our pictures. You’ll learn about layers, blending modes, textures and more. Everything is step by step so amateur or advanced Photoshop users can keep up. 
5:00 Dinner. 
6:30 pm. Sunset portraits. We’ll have a model so we can learn and practice on and off camera flash. Learn to balance your flash with the background for beautiful sunset portraits. Sunset is at 7:29 pm.

Sunday morning: Old Naples Photo Tour. Learn a little bit about the history of Naples while learning about photography. Peggy will guide you to the best pictures, help you with your settings and composition. 
Sunday brunch (not included in the price) 
Sunday 2:00 to 3:00 pm. Learn to process HDR pictures.
