This socially-distanced photography workshop will focus on depth of field for outdoor photography. The event will be run weather-permitting and is limited to 15 people (spots will be allocated on a first come, first reserved basis). The workshop will run from approximately 9am to 2pm on Saturday, May 1, 2021, and will be meeting at the picnic shelter in the upper parking lot on the Lupton Access Entrance located at 1191 Lupton Rd., Woodstock, VA 22664.

The workshop content, administered by local photographer Jeff Reilley, will be focused learning about depth of field in photography through getting hands-on experience with taking close-up photos of blooms with blurred back-grounds, and learning how to keep everything in focus when photographing larger landscape vistas. Workshop content will give participants flexibility on what to people want to photograph and will allow for some creativity in shot selection. 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 6 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.
