This photo workshop celebrates Autumn in West Virginia with visits to Blackwater Falls, Canaan Valley, and Dolly Sods. I scheduled the program during the week as opposed to the weekend to avoid crowded conditions at Dolly Sods & other popular sites. Because of the high elevation in this region, fall arrives in early October when leaves on the mountainside turn from green to a mix of warm colors. The program is designed for those with a basic knowledge of the operation of 35 mm SLR digital or mirrorless cameras with an interest in nature photography. Workshop emphasis is on improving photographic skills, creativity, and optimizing the use of your camera. Beaver, deer, muskrats, bear, and other animals are active and often visible as they gather food and prepare for the winter. The workshop includes an orientation PowerPoint program followed by photography in the field and an image review session.
Although I have conducted many photo workshops in West Virginia, I will arrive in area several days prior to the program to scout locations and check current conditions. The exact itinerary for the workshop will be based on results from my time scouting, weather, safety issues, park regulations, desires of the group, and on my past experience.
