Advanced Nature and Landscape Photography: Sunrise at Great Falls, VA

During this session, I will guide you into Great Falls National Park, where we can capture the sunrise using some advanced photographic techniques.

Topics will include:
1) Planning for and capturing multiple exposures for

a) dynamic range

b) depth of field

c) panorama or perspective

3) Best practices for planning & preparation to capture stunning sunrise shots

4) Practice in the field!

PLEASE NOTE: You WILL have had to take an intro course with me or another instructor before taking this workshop. This is NOT a beginner's class, and will assume you know basics to advanced techniques in landscape photography. Please contact me if you're unsure of your level in relation to this class.

What you will need to bring:

1) A digital SLR camera 
2) A tripod (requirement)
3) Cable release (semi-hard requirement)
4) Water and bug spray

Your payment will be refunded if you indicate you will not come 48 hours before the start of the session. We generally will shoot, rain or shine. The best images are made that way. In the case of severe weather, we will postpone certain meet ups.

The entrance fee for GFNP is $5.00, and is not included in this class. Sometimes it is not collected, but if iti s, please pay that directly to the U.S. Park Ranger station on your way into the park.

    I am definitely a qualified photographer (see my bio).
    Unfortunately, I have two photo shoots that afternoon and evening and I am not sure I am up to a third one early tomorrow morning.

    Could this be affected by the shutdown or is this location accessible regardless?
