2018 Spring Waterfalls Workshop
Spring is a great time of the year in Alabama for waterfall photography. Bankhead National Forest is sometimes called, "The Land of a Thousand Waterfalls." This description is very true. Join us as we visit two locations in Bankhead National Forest. We will visit Key Mill Branch Falls during the morning session and then photograph Holmes Chapel Falls in the afternoon.
When: May 5, 2018
Where: Bankhead National Forest, Alabama
Cost: $125 (which covers the Lightroom/Photoshop class) The waterfall trips are just a bonus.
Equipment that you will need for this workshop:
*Old shoes that you can get wet.
*Shutter cable (suggested but not required)
*Wide angle lens (suggested but not required)
*Mid-range lens (18-55 mm will be fine)
*Lens cloth (to dry off your lens from spray)
*Bag to carry your equipment
*Cleared memory card
*Polarizer (strongly recommended)- you can buy them from B & H Photo for about $40. Tiffen is a decent brand that sells them at this price. There are cheaper ones but they usually will give a color cast to the image that you cannot get rid of in post-processing. Buy one that will fit your widest lens (for example, my widest is 77mm so I bought a 77mm polarizer and then bought a $5 step up ring so that I can put it on my 67mm sized telephoto lens). This way you only have to buy one polarizer to fit all of your lenses.
*5:00 a.m.-Meet at the Warrior Mountain Trading Post in Wren, Alabama.
*6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m- Shoot Key Mill Branch Falls and the canyon. This is a moderate 2 mile (round trip) hike. The trail can be rocky at times but over all it is an easy trail. You will also have to step over a few logs along the way.
*11:00-12:00- Take a break for lunch in Moulton, Alabama.
*12:30-3:30 p.m.- Lightroom/Photoshop class in Moulton, Alabama. A laptop is not required but is recommended. You will learn a lot more if you can follow along with me on your computer to learn how to use the programs. Please download the trial version Lightroom and Photoshop CC on your computer if you don't already have it .
*4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Hike to Holmes Chapel Falls and shoot the falls. It is a short, easy hike with an easy climb down into the canyon.
*6:00 p.m.- Workshop ends
