Saturday, July 30, 2016 is the rescheduled date for the “Photographing Water in Nature” workshop with instructor Larry Winslett.

10:00 am – 4:00 pm      $45.00

Water is one of nature’s most mesmerizing subjects and takes many forms. So, how do we document the wonder of water? From stop action to producing silky smooth scenes, there are many professional techniques to ensure outstanding results. In this workshop, we will learn about location and perspective, direction and speed of water, camera settings and creative shutter choices, the importance of a tripod, specialized equipment and lenses, managing exposure with neutral density filters, managing glare and reflections with polarizers, protecting your gear, and experimenting with composition. In the morning session, the instructor will share proven techniques and beautiful images of water. After a break, be prepared to head into the field to practice new techniques.

Participants must bring a camera, lenses, polarizing and neutral density filters if you have them, and a tripod. Bring extra memory cards and batteries. Dress accordingly for the weather. Bring waders if you plan to get in the water.

The workshop will take place at the Etowah Community Center, 155 Robinson Street, Etowah, TN 37331.
