Learn How to Shoot in Full Manual

I'll be back again at Shutterstories in Riverside on May 1st to give my  "Manual Exposure and Filtration for Nature Photography" seminar!

In this $39 one-day seminar, I'll teach you how to shoot in full manual the right way. I'll also reveal the secret behind my landscape photography and what filters I use to get the dramatic shots.

Here's what one participant had to say about the seminar:

I attended Nick's seminar at Shutterstories in Riverside in order to make the move to real, calculated photos. Let me tell you, it changed my photography forever. As a result of Nick's clear concise presentation I have transitioned from a "shoot and hope for the best" mentality to a "how should I design this shot" approach...I am getting photos from my inexpensive kit lens that I would have thought could only come from high end glass.
