If you are anywhere within a decent car, train or bus ride of Westhampton, New York, get in touch with +Cheryl Machat Dorskind and join her for one of her safaris. Cheryl teaches photography online, mentoring photography students all over the world. She is also a portrait photographer, a master at hand-painting photographs, and a published author. I had a great time and wanted to pitch a tent on the beach, roast marshmallows and fall asleep under the stars. I would go back tomorrow if I could. I would love to do one in the Fall, in the Winter, in the Springtime.”

“Thank you for a great workshop last Saturday. I had a wonderful time. Not only did we visit some beautiful and unique landscapes but it gave me an opportunity to explore my own photography skills.  I learned what a difference a polarizing filter can make! I am very pleased with my results and loved the relaxed, supportive feel of the workshop. Thanks again for a great day. I slept well that night! :)”

“I learned on the shoot that a DOF (Depth of Field) app was available for my iPhone; and I downloaded it and Cheryl instructed me on how to use it for my D7000.  It’s very helpful and I will continue to use it in the future.  Cheryl also instructed us on which filters to use for different lighting situations and my neutral density filter was extremely useful that day.  It filtered out strong sunlight and preserved detail in my photo and my pictures were not overexposed.  Thank you, Cheryl, for your time and expertise on this shoot.”
