2021 Winter Bankhead Waterfalls Workshop

Untitled photo

Winter 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. The waterfalls are usually flowing very strongly due to frequent rainfall during the winter time. Join us as we visit a very special canyon in Bankhead National Forest. This canyon has 4 large waterfalls with a short distance in between each of them. This will be a half day workshop.

When:  February 20, 2021

Where:Bankhead National Forest, Alabama

Cost: $99

Equipment that you will need for this workshop:

*Old shoes that you can get wet.

*Dress in layers.  You will get hot hiking and so you will need to remove layers.  Quick dry clothes are suggested.  Do not wear cotton because it does not dry well at all.  

*dSLR

*Tripod

*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

*Extra batteries

*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.

Physical Requirements:

This will be an easy to moderate hike.  The total distance will be approximately 2.5 miles round trip.  Participants need to be able to hike up and down hilly terrain with camera gear and personal items such as water and snacks.
