Smoky Mountain Fall Color Workshop October 25-28

The streams and waterfalls in the Smoky Mountains are great to photograph any time of year but when the Mountains are in their fall colors it is magical.

When working along the rivers I usually want to create a fluid movement and sharp focus through the image. When the light is a little brighter light a Neutral Density filter will give me a longer exposure. In low light conditions I can usually create this effect with a 3 or 4 second exposure without having to use the Neutral Density filters.

For me watching the clients capturing images and having fun is the best part of teaching at any of the location. When capturing images whether you shooting a candid portrait or landscape timing is everything. You can see the enthusiasm in Steve’s face for the image he has just taken.

Have a great New Year!! Hope everyone captures wonder images in 2015.

If you haven’t made that special plan for the New Year it might be time to plan a location shoot with me this spring in Italy, Charleston or the Smoky Mountains.
