Upcoming Photo Safari Trips

April 2021
  • Wild Spring Flowers & Waterfalls in the Great Smoky Mountains

  • April 5 -10 , 2021
  • $1250.00
  • The Great Smoky Mountain National Park stretches from Gatlinburg, Tennessee to Cherokee, North Carolina. Clear invigorating air, sparkling streams and virgin woodlands provide an unsurpassed background complete with waterfalls and wildflowers. Photograph the Roaring Fork Stream cascading past giant moss covered boulders. Stroll through and shoot Cades Cove, an historic village preserved from a bygone era. The Smoky Mountains are an unspoiled, beautiful area any time of year, but Appalachia becomes a special place when the spring wildflowers and the Dogwood bloom.  This workshop is scheduled around Easter to accommodate people off from work and school. Easter occurs from late March to middle April. Spring wildflowers bloom at different times. If Easter is early, look for Hepatica, Spring Beauties, Blood Root, Rue Anemone, Squirrel Corn and Fringed Phaclilia. If Easter is later that year, you may expect to see several species of Trillium, Jack in the Pulpit, Columbine, Yellow Lady's Slipper, May Apple, or Wild Geranium and others. This is tripod shooting! We will cover close-up techniques for shooting wild flowers. Learn principles of composition embraced by all landscape photographers. You will learn techniques such as custom white balancing, noise reduction, exposure stacking for HDR, panorama stitching, color space for printing and many more. Minimal hiking is involved.
