Photography Workshops: A Great Investment

Jena JohnsonThis month Jena Johnson will talk about improving your photography through travel workshops. Over the past year Jena has traveled to Peru to photograph insects in a jungle setting with BugShot Photography Workshops, with a side trip to Machu Picchu, and traveled to the Arizona desert to study landscape photography on a LightChase Photography tour. Attending a photography workshop allows you to gain insider knowledge about exotic and unique locations as well as learn new techniques with hands-on training. But they present unique challenges as well. After Jena’s talk we will hold a group discussion where APG members can share their personal experiences attending and hosting photography workshops.

Jena is an entomologist at UGA who for many years photographed insects with a 35mm film camera, but when digital cameras became more affordable her passion for insect photography was reignited. She photographs insects for the pure joy it brings her.

More of Jena’s work can be seen on her web site:
