- $55 for a two-hour smartphone macrophotography workshop (a $185 value)
Over the two hours, groups of up to 10 students explore Fort Langley to find interesting subjects to capture through their smartphone cameras, learning to create fascinating, close-up photos with nothing an iPhone, iPod Touch, or Android phone. Each participant also receives a special lens—compatible with all camera-equipped phones—that makes it easier to take clear shots of tiny details, such as sprouting seeds or ants' studio apartments.
Specializing in family photography, Lesley Ann Bell captures honest and authentic moments in time with each colourful and captivating portrait. During each on-location shoot, she lets her shutter loose on memorable images, snapping a multitude of pictures before winnowing them down to 30 keepers ready for processing and display on prints or online image galleries. Lesley Ann also nurtures nascent shutterbugs through beginner's and advanced DSLR photography classes. Sessions begin with a one-hour training session that teaches photo fundamentals to beginners or advanced lighting techniques to more experienced students. Intimate five-students-or-less classes then migrate outdoors for an hour or more of hands-on experience. With friendly guidance from Lesley Ann, the group puts newly learned principles into practice, training lenses on the memorable landscape of riverbanks, trees, birds, and centaurs combing the grass with metal detectors.
