There is something about moving water that is just irresistible to photographers, whether it’s a fast flowing creek or a slow and serene river. ¬†On this workshop you will learn the techniques and concepts ¬†to capture those amazing photo opportunities just waiting for you in your local rivers, streams, lakes or wetlands.

We¬†will cover a¬†number of technical, creative, and¬†field techniques to help you create dramatic and powerful river¬†images,¬†including;¬† understanding light, reflections, recommended filters and equipment, using shutter speed for “dreamy or drama”, shooting in all¬†weather, composition concepts, and staying safe around moving water.

After this workshop you will be ready to get creative and  to get out there to  capture great images of creeks, rivers and streams!

Type: Outdoor Workshop

Activity Level:  Moderate

Things to know:  When working around water, its very easy to end up with fogged lenses when you first get out of the vehicle.  If we encounter warmer temps, make sure you allow your lens a few minutes to match the outside temperatures before taking off your lens cap, or it will fog up.

What to bring: Wide angle and mid range telephoto lenses.  A polarizer and tripod are strongly recommended, especially for sunrise and long exposure shots.  Shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting wet and dirty. Shoes with good traction.  A small towel or lens cloth to remove any drops or fog from your camera and gear.
