  • Fall Waterfall Workshop 2020

    Hanging Rock State Park

    Are you intrigued by waterfalls?  Do you find the moving water captivating and relaxing?  Do you want to learn how to photograph these waterfalls?  Then this is the workshop for you!  Join me as we hike through Hanging Rock State Park where we can find a total of seven waterfalls of different types within a very small area.  This park is unique in that five different waterfalls are located within a very short hike from the main parking area with an additional two located just outside of the park accessible by a short drive and shorter hikes.  This single day workshop will introduce you to long exposure photography with the techniques and equipment needed to capture that soothing flow of silky water over the rocks.  There will also be a short Lightroom demonstration during the day (conditions permitting) to show what is possible with editing waterfalls.  This workshop is open to photographers of all experience levels, but since we will be dealing with a very specific genre of photography, I do ask that you have a general understanding of the photographic process.  If you are not sure if this is the workshop for you, please contact me so we can discuss your needs further.


    Location: 1790 Hanging Rock Park Rd, Danbury, NC 27016


    Date: Saturday, December 5, 2020


    Duration:  Full day from 7am until around 5pm


    Cost: $200.00 per person


    Limit: 6 Participants


    COVID-19:This workshop is still officially on the calendar.  I am not sure what the State/CDC recommendations will be by early December, but we will do our best to comply with those restrictions.  Should circumstances force the cancellation of the workshop full refunds (less Paypal Fees) will be issued.


    Transportation: Driving conditions will be on paved roads with ample parking.


    Facilities:  There is a visitor’s center in the main parking lot, but it doesn’t open until 9am.


    Meals:  There will be a lunch break at a mid point of the day.  Due to travel time to any restaurants in the area it is recommended that you pack a lunch.


    Fitness Level: There will be hiking involved in this workshop, although the trails that we will be taking are around a half mile, or less to the destination.  They are moderate in difficulty in some places, but there are hazards associated with hiking around waterfalls which you should keep in mind.  Expect to hike around three miles total if we go to all seven of the waterfalls.


    Gear: Food, drinks, hiking boots (preferably waterproof), charged batteries, memory cards, lenses, and owner’s manuals.  I would also highly suggest that you bring a good quality tripod and a polarizing filter at a bare minimum with ND filters being strongly suggested as well.  I will have a workshop kit from Singh-Ray for you to try out the filters as the day goes on.  With waterfall photography, the tripod and filters mentioned will have a very big bearing on your enjoyment and ability to learn the techniques associated with waterfall photography.  The weather here can be unpredictable for this time of year.  I will send out information about what to expect as we get closer to the workshop so you can prepare.
