This socially-distanced photography workshop will be based on landscape photography and other photo opportunities found within Seven Bends State Park. This event will be run weather-permitting and is limited to 10 people (spots will be allocated on a first come, first reserved basis). The workshop will run from approximately 10am to 2pm on Saturday, November 28, 2020, and will be meeting at the Hollingsworth entrance of Seven Bends State Park.
The workshop content will be focused on manual control of a camera, and how to use aperture and shutter speed to achieve different results from the camera. It will begin with a short introduction, will be followed by a brief question and answer section with the group to understand each person’s experience level with photography, and then the group will hike to various locations to shoot photos and discuss results at each location in the park.
Interested participants should bring a camera and the owners manual for the camera, wear sturdy shoes that provide good hiking support, and dress for the weather. Masks must be worn when 10 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained; please review our COVID guidelines for outdoor activities here. Participants are encouraged to pack a lunch and water, and welcome to bring a tripod if so desired. Make sure to bring $5 for parking if you do not have a Virginia State Parks Annual Pass. We reserve the right to cancel the event if the current COVID-19 situation deems gathering in a group of ten people unsafe.
