You will learn go-to settings for capturing animals on the move, including stopping the action of birds in flight. Discover techniques for making your subjects pop in the scene, along with a general overview of how Heidi processes her wildlife images from RAW to getting them ready for print.

February 15
Wilderness ONE
This mini session is for woman only. It has become a goal of mine to help women combat the anxiety of exploring nature alone. Join me for an hour and half workshop where you will be able to ask the difficult questions that might help you overcome some of the fear of being outside after dark. I will teach you what I have learned over the years and try to help you build a plan that will allow you to better connect with nature and wildlands.
