In early October yellows, reds, oranges, and pinks pop in contrast to deep evergreen conifers and the earliest touches of snow in the high country.  Autumn produces some of the most stunning Pacific Northwest landscapes but have you ever tried capturing this fleeting season with a camera?  Automatic settings often fail to capture this time of year. 


Join photographer Juan Aguilera for this day-long fall colors photography workshop.  Topics to cover include:

  • Shooting in manual
  • Learning to read the light
  • Using polarizers and discussing color saturation
  • Addressing ideal focal length with different lens sizes
  • Playing with depth and shadow to create a balanced composition


After a morning of honing our skills near the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center, we’ll venture east along State Route 20 making vibrant stops along the way. Depending on the weather we could be shooting at landscape to macro scales based on where the best fall colors can be found.  


You’ll leave this workshop ready to apply your skills on your next autumn adventure whether it's hiking in the larch filled high country or marveling at urban trees by the Salish Sea. Show family & friends the amazing place you call home when you share your work on social media or hang an image on the empty spot on your living room wall. 


Scholarships and Student, Military and Disability discounts are available for most in-person programs. Call (360) 854-2599 for more info!
