Blackwater Falls, Dolly Sods, Canaan Valley: Spring in Wild & Wonderful West Virginia; May 1 – 4, 2013
What would we do without Wild and Wonderful West Virginia! 18 years ago we fell in love with everything about it. Now we have a home there. It is an undiscovered treasure, an oasis of natural beauty and we try hard to keep it that way. We are willing to share it, but only with fellow photographers. West Virginia always seems to enhance the opportunity to share with us photographers her magnificent beauty and wonders. We never tire of these locations and they never let us down. The region represents a simpler life style, a slower pace, a step back in time – not to mention beautiful scenery. We will stay in Canaan Valley and use it as our home base traveling to other locations to photograph scenics, wildflowers, waterfalls, rivers, fences, old barns, bugs, windmills and anything else that suits our fancy. Everywhere you look you will see a photograph. And within each photograph awaits another. As usual, most of our instruction will be conducted in the field and we will work on topics of interest to the whole group – a lot of one on one. One topic, for instance, will open your eyes to seeing more than the obvious- shooting a picture within a picture within a picture. Patterns in the wood of an old, gnarled barn can be intriguing and spark creativity. Or maybe frame only the corner of a barn with a little fence line and small flower while using a wide angle lens. Fog, as it extends and folds, wrapping around barns and trees, rising from the wetlands, creating serenity, mystery and magic, is one of the easiest subjects to photograph. We’ll show you how.
