Every registered participant will have their name in the bag for these drawings which will be given out during group events throughout the weekend. Your name goes in the drawing once just for registering for the event, and one additional time for each additional thing like a shirt, hat, portfolio review, and pre or post workshop! Must be present to win any doorprize.
If you invite a friend to join you at the event, we will add 3 more tickets with your name to the drawing bag! You will need to email Nicole or have them put your name in the comments section on the checkout page to receive your additional entries (no limit!). They must be new participants, never been to a Photo Shootout or on a workshop with any of our instructors previously.
We have over 30 workshops to choose from and you get to choose any 4 you want! These are instructed workshops, not field trips, so you are going to learn from the professionals while photographing amazing subjects and locations. Tamron will also have FREE loaner lenses that you can borrow throughout the weekend for the workshops.
Unique courses, exceptional instructors, incredible photo opportunities, and loads of fun, all in one weekend in the beautiful outdoors… who could ask for more!?! We look forward to seeing you on February 24-26, 2017 in Clearwater, FL for lots of photography and fun!
Sunset near the Dunedin Marina, looking out towards Honeymoon Island. The lines and light on this little beached sailboat caught my eye, really fun place to wander around with the camera and just be creative.

????+☁️=????. A foggy sunrise over a pond full of lily pads. This is favorite spot of mine in the fog. Having shot it a few times, I really wanted to do a vertical composition of it. This morning’s light and fog seemed just about right for it.

Here’s a challenge to any physicists, entomologists, spider enthusiasts, etc. Can you explain the science behind what is going on in this photo?
This past summer, I posted a series of shots of “Rai” the rainbow spider, who had built a web in the corner of our patio/lanai. Every morning the web would catch the sun in this dazzling rainbow, something I had not seen any other spider web produce to this vibrant degree. I never really understood why this web was different. So while organizing and editing some of those photos for a submission this past week, I decided to try to get an answer to the mystery of the rainbow web. So far I have got a number of responses, and answers of “diffraction grate”, refraction, and “sticky droplets”. I am hoping one of you can fully explain, or at least I want to watch a physicist and entomologist have a bare knuckles throw down.
