High Falls State Park Photography Half Day Workshop

  • Jan 25, 2014 · 8:00 AM

Want to get some amazing winter shots of some beautiful waterfalls, wildlife, lake scenes and other beautiful imagery? This is the workshop to do just that at beautiful High Falls State Park.

This workshop will be focused on capturing some amazing winter scene images. We will talk about the best ways to capture the waterfalls in this perfect light early in the morning. We will also discuss how to set the mood with these images by turning some of them into beautiful black and white images, as well as how to make the best use of color in others. 

We will be meeting for a short presentation on how to take your images from snap shots to awesome shots and then we will spend the rest of the time out in the park during that amazing golden hour light capturing some amazing waterfall shots. Anyone can take a quick shot of a beautiful waterfall, then get home and talk about how the image doesn't do the place justice. I will help take you one step closer to shooting images that will really capture the attention of anyone who sees it and help you see the scenes and waterfalls in ways that you may have never been able to before.

I will work with each participant one on one as needed throughout the hands on portion of the workshop to help each person capture "the shot" you are looking for :) 

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have as we go along, even if it is beyond the scope of this workshop. I will help you as much as I can during the allowed time.

I look forward to seeing you all there.

What you will need: 

A camera


Your camera manual or guide book for your camera if you have one.

    I think it was an awesome day. It wasn't quite as cold as I was expecting, especially after doing the presentation inside the group shelter :) I am glad there was still enough ice hanging around to offer some great photo opportunities. I cannot wait to see some of the images. :) Thanks to all who attended and made it a great day. :)

    Hi Rena, something as happened and I will not be able to attend in the morning. I was so looking forward to learning so many new things. I remember you saying something about handouts and was wondering if I still could get one. Would that be possible? Thank you and again I apologize for the short notice. I'll be there the next time for certain.

      Hey Lisa. I am sorry that you were not able to join us yesterday. I do hope everything was okay. As far as the handout goes, absolutely I can get you one. I will email you to sort that out :) We do have a lot more workshops coming up soon, so I hope to see you at one of those :)
