WHAT WILL WE DO:
This workshop will provide opportunities to photograph sandhill cranes as they come back to the river to roost for the evening, and when they leave the river in the mornings. In the mornings we will be up early and get to the blind and be settled in an hour before sunrise and will not leave until the birds have left the river. In the evenings, we will arrive at our location about two hours before sunset and will not leave until dark. Between blind trips, we will download and edit images, have a group critique session of selected images and teach you how to edit your images in photoshop.
