Waterrock Knob Sunset Workshop – bonus** light painting!

WaterRock Knob Overlook Workshop

Where: Waterrock Knob Overlook, located on the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Soco Entrance, http://www.blueridgeparkway.org/v.php?pg=116

When: June 3 Friday, inclement weather date TBD

Time: 5:00-9 (ish) pm in the parking lot at the west side.

Details:  This meeting will be focused on the advanced beginner to the intermediate skill level. Please bring your gear including a DSLR and your tripod. If you have any filters such as Neutral Density or Graduated Neutral Density filters as well as Polarizing filters please bring those as well. You will need at the very least the basic skills of photographer under your belt, that is to say you normally shoot in AV, TV or S, or M mode regularly or have a strong desire to get out of P mode. We will introduce ourselves briefly and then start to discover and unlock the tricks to a good sunset image. I will go over composition, useful settings, and how to bracket your images so that when the sunset starts to happen you are ready to capture amazing shots. I will spend private time with each of you. I will do my best to answer any questions you may have. I will have extra filters, but as you know, they are lens size specific except the square ones which I will bring as well. If the weather works with us, you will leave with super shots of the sunset and will have had a great time learning  new skills that you will then need to put into practice!  Subsequently, we will share our images on our group page so that we can all learn from each other!  A post production screencast will be made of my entire workflow from an image I capture during the Workshop, this is an invaluable part of the Workshop!  An added bonus ********   Light painting will be featured at the end of this workshop. Everyone will get a chance to capture a scene with me light painting the trees !!

Requirements: Minimum of 4 people signed up with a maximum of 8. In the event that the weather does not permit us to hold the event, we will move to the inclement weather date. By signing up, you agree that you can be available for both dates. If you are unable to make both dates please let me know in advance and I will do my best to work with you on another upcoming workshop. Refunds are only given in the event I have an unforeseen circumstance or an act of Nature prevents a safe environment to hold the workshop. You will need at the very least a DSLR and a tripod.

Cost: $75 per person paid here at the time of sign up

    Got two questions. First is the WaterRock workshop full and if not what can be the last day to sign up. Reason for the questions is that I am trying to work out a trip to Pigeon Forge on that weekend. Thanks
