    Due to inclement weather expected, I rescheduled for next class.

    Hi, unlike the class description, I just realized we will not be going outside. I am disappointed because I was looking forward to learning about how to take pictures of movement; I.e. The falls. How will you compensate for that indoors? I understand 3 hours is a long time to be outside in the cold, is it possible to go outside some of the time? Otherwise, I think this will be limiting.

      The first year I did this I did them all out in the cold and I could handle it because I know how to dress for the cold but my students could not survive 3 hours and many many left after an hour so I do them indoors now.

      Ok that's fair. Thank you for responding so quickly.

    Everyone should take note of the new address. This class will be indoors in Woonsocket.

    Will this class be held outside? I noticed that some of the past classes were held inside due to the cold weather. I would prefer to wait until an outdoor class especially one when there is snow on the ground.

      Sorry I'm not planning on going back outside until spring. I have learned from experience that people can't take the cold for 3 hours.
