Photography Fieldtrip Workshops started in November, 2011. Our inaugural trip was to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. During the week-long workshop participants had an opportunity to photograph many of the key spots located in the park. These included some of the traditionally visited areas such as Cades Cove, Newfound Gap, and Clingman’s Dome. They also ventured into some areas that the average tourist doesn’t have an opportunity to visit. The streams and cascades found in these areas challenged them to photograph, but still offered a wonderful place just to sit and enjoy. After a fun day spent putting the cameras through their paces, participants spent time in the classroom. There, they learned new techniques and worked on image post-processing. They exchanged ideas and critiqued each others’ work. On the last evening during a final group meeting everyone shared some favorite finished images in a slideshow.
This past spring we repeated the workshop, enjoying the lush greenery and rushing streams.
12 participants, 5 nights, 4 days of shooting, 2 instructors, 1 awesome good time!
Photography Field Ttrip Workshops combine field photography experiences with comprehensive classroom instruction. The workshops are for intermediate photographers who want to improve their skills. These workshops focus on hands-on learning. By working out in the field participants have the opportunity to make it possible to take home treasured works of art.
