Those who participate in the 2019 Golden Hour Smartphone Photography Workshop will be empowered to make beautiful pictures with their smartphones in Summit Lake State Park during the magical light that is known as The Golden Hour.

The park staff will point out plants, animals, and scenery of particular interest. Participants will learn how to use their smartphones to photograph landscapes, portraits, still lifes, and do macro photography. Following the introduction, the workshop members will have the opportunity to shoot photographs throughout the park.

For a fee of $10, participants will receive admission to the park, a printed handout, a tripod, and a box of photographic clip-on lenses for their smartphones. The first ten people who register will receive the handouts.

It is recommended, but not required that they purchase for $3.99 the Proshot App for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone http://www.riseupgames.com/proshot

Photographs may be sent to the park to be judged by the staff. The winning picture will be framed and hung in the Summit Lake State Park office.

Registration is limited to 10 individuals (seats) and can be completed on this webpage.

If you have any questions, please call James at (317) 581-9126.
