At our October meeting professional photographer and photography teacher Nick Carver will show us how to get better sunset photos at the coast with simple tools any photographer can apply. No need for Photoshop or HDR, you can get excellent sunset seascapes right in the camera without a lick of computer time.

As a photography instructor Nick helps photographers grow through private lessons in Orange County, group lessons and online classes. As a professional photographer Nick has experience in nearly every type of hired work ranging from portraits, architecture, nature, landscapes, travel, editorial, advertising, products, events, and more. His publication credits include Outdoor Photographer magazine (cover image, article), Travel + Leisure magazine, and Coast magazine.

Thanks to Rick Valasek for organizing and presenting the lighting and posing workshop on October 17. It was an excellent hands-on experience with professional studio lighting.
