Boone, North Carolina Photography Workshop

Come experience some of the scenic images of this beautiful mountain getaway!

You asked for new places and we listened! We are now offering you the rustic mountain charm of Boone, NC and the surrounding area. Come join us for a long weekend of incredible photography and instruction.

We will spend one day on Grandfather Mountain, taking in the zoo, the foliage and the scenic and iconic views from the top! We'll also spend some time exploring the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, taking in the scenic route and covering all the popular sights and some quaint off-the-beaten-path locations as well. It's a great way to take home a sampling of images representing a wide variety of objects, buildings, autumn colors, scenic views and much more.

This three day workshop will cover all of the basics of digital photography while you are capturing images at spectacular locations in and around Boone, NC. We will talk about subjects such as proper exposure, image composition, the use of various filters, using the available light to your advantage, and more.
This workshop has full days planned and will include sunrise and sunset photography, so prepare for a full day of shooting and adventure. Who knows, we might also break out and take in Tweetsie Railroad.

Chris will share his experience and knowledge of the subjects and area as well as their skills and techniques to help you capture the best images and hone the skills of getting it right in the field to prevent the dreaded “fix it in Photoshop” mentality.

Photography experiences planned include HDR training, long exposures - with attention given to elements of composition, personal vision, help with technical aspects of the camera, possible approaches to subjects, Lightroom, Photoshop, OnOne plugins, Photomatix (HDR), and stitching (panoramas)!

The group will meet on Thursday night to discuss the final itinerary, meet classmates, and enjoy a social dinner at one of the local establishments. A typical day will include, spending the early mornings shooting the sunrise, the late morning at various venues, stopping for lunch to refresh and discuss shooting techniques and finish up with more photography at various locations until sunset and later!

After our stay in Boone, you will be overwhelmed in both knowledge and stunning images!

You will be responsible for any admission fees, your food, lodging, and transportation. THIS WORKSHOP WILL FILL FAST! Do not hesitate!

A list of recommended equipment and supplies will be provided so you’ll be ready for the adventure.
