Shootout Image Review
(projected time: Sun 1:15-3:15pm) Spend Sunday afternoon in a Group Review, critiquing and editing your work with the Black Hills State University professors, Steve Babbitt, Jerry Rawlings, and Skott Chandler. The critique is the most valuable learning/teaching experience that a photographer can experience. Much can be learned by participating in discussions about your work and the work of others. Whether it be work from the workshop weekend or previous photographs, the BHSU photography faculty will review your work and give advice on composition, lighting, content and editing. The BHSU faculty all have MFA’s in photography and have a combined teaching experience of 60 years. Skott Chandler is a photoshop master and will demonstrate quick and easy techniques on selected images to demonstrate what is possible in post-production. Please join us for lively discussions about the medium that we all love so much.
"Bring Only Three Things" Photo Walk
(Meeting time: Sun 1:15-3:15pm) You are about to embark on a nice photo walk. You have your favorite camera body, but you can only bring three additional items with you. This would include camera lenses, tripods, speedlights, reflectors… Basically any item that you use to capture images.

The Magic Of Light Painting ~SESSION FULL~
(Meeting time: Sun 1:15-3:15pm) During the “Magic of Light Painting” session I will review such types of light painting with fire works (sparklers), burning steel wool, pen lights, spot lights and twirling lights. Props that will be available to “paint” during the session include but limited to: flowers, feathers, wheat stems, skulls, toys, Christmas tree, people etc… A tripod is mandatory for this class. Those wishing to attend must bring their own small pen light flashlight - a cable release will be a very helpful tool. A telephoto lens in the range of a 24 - 105 mm will work best for this class. We will also be experimenting with zooming during a long exposure - so if you have a zoom lens please include it in your camera bag. Students will need to know how to manually set / change the f/stops - bulb setting and ISO on their camera. They will need to review their camera manual before attending if they don’t know how to do this. Instructor: Markus Erk
Sun 6:00-9:00pm. After a long day of working cattle the cowboys will settle in for the evening next to their covered wagon and campfire under the stars. Make sure you bring your tripod and know how your camera works so that you are ready for low light exposures. As the sunsets and we photograph into the late evening you won't want to miss the gorgeous scene unfolding in front of you. Wear good walking shoes to this one. We will be in horse pastures and uneven terrain most of the time. Instructor: Becca Gage Shelbourn
The Fell Remuda

You will get to photograph a stallion, and mares with their new foals all with the black hills in the background. Come prepared with your walking shoes while we follow the horses to get a closer look. We will be in horse pastures and uneven terrain most of the time. Instructor: Becca Gage Shelbourn
