Fall Foliage Workshop 2010

What a perfect weekend spent looking through the lens!  This last weekend we wrapped up our Fall Foliage workshop lead by Wilson and April.  We had the added bonus of having a guest teacher from the University of TN, Steve Chastain, who lead a discussion on the benefits of Lightroom.

Due to the recent strange weather, the leaves weren’t as vibrant this year, mostly due to the rain coming too late and a large storm knocking the leaves off two days before our class.  However, that didn’t stop Wilson from putting together a fabulous workshop for everyone who attended.  The weather couldn’t have been more pleasant for our weekend; we had crisp mornings that lead into warm sunny afternoons.  Crystal blue skies accented the bright foliage and silky water of the rushing waterfalls as we explored the beautiful Smoky Mountains.   We had an exceptional group of photographers at all skill levels, and they all left our workshop with beautiful magazine worthy images!  Several traveled cross-country to attend and many returned from previous workshops.  The photography and outdoor community are blessed with a passion for life and a sense of comradery.  I believe there were many new friendships that have blossomed from this exceptional weekend.  We are already looking forward and planning the next workshop in the spring!  We can’t wait to see everyone again!

Make sure you check out Steve Chastain’s blog post recapping the weekend.  He took some great candid shots of the class!  Also, if you need a refresher course over what Steve discussed, don’t miss F/32 Photo’s blog discussing Lightroom tips, tricks, and presets and of course a few photos.
