Its been a very busy week. After returning home from a photo shoot in the Monongahela National Forest in West,Virginia, on Tuesday, I began to sort through and process over 1200 images from the trip. The rest of the week was dedicated to putting the finishing touches on the workshop lecture and agenda as well as finishing up with three magazine photo submissions, whew.
The workshop this weekend was hosted by Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia and was a great success with some really stellar students. On Saturday we had a 3 hour lecture going over the fundamentals of Landscape Photography and then spent the next day with a field session a Great Falls National Park and Difficult Run. My students had a real zeal and sincere enthusiasm for landscape photography and are on their way to becoming excellent photographers. Although the sky was devoid of any clouds there was some nice mist rising of the Potomac River which added a nice touch and gave us something to work with. After spending about 2 hours shooting sunrise at the gorge, we headed over to Difficult Run to shoot some reflections and abstract images. Thanks guys for making this weekend great fun and allowing me the pleasure of working with you. Here a few shots I was able to pull off during the session.
