It’s hard to believe that the Fall Foliage Photography Workshop has already come and gone. Fall is my favorite time of the year here and it breaks my heart how fast the Maine foliage slips away. As I look out the window right now there are still lots of leaves on the trees, but with each passing day the colors are growing more dull. Soon we will enter the dreaded cold and gray “stick season.” It’s a good thing that I took lots and lots of beautiful photos of the glorious fall colors to look back on and remember when I’m trapped indoors under several feet of snow.
I couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better group of people to spend two days shooting with. We all had a great time capturing some of the surrounding beauty.
And there was beauty everywhere. From reflections of the foliage on the water . . .
To pretty buildings along the roadside . . .
We really didn’t have to work too hard to find it.
There were many highlights of the event, but one of my favorites was visiting the wineries. (Don’t read too much into that!) The grounds at both of the wineries that we visited were gorgeous and offered so much to see and shoot. From striped cows and pretty trees to delicate grapes still hanging on the vines.
Not only did the participants learn from me, but they also learned from each other. Nothing beats the group dynamics of spending time together and helping each other out.
We shot everything from sweeping landscapes to tiny details. It sure wasn’t too much of a challenge to “pluck the details of fall” like I recommended that everybody do.
We went to many places and were on the go non-stop for two days. I don’t blame some of the folks for laying down on the job! It was exhausting.
This next picture is symbolic of what my head felt like when it was all done.
As tiring as it was, I wish I could do it all again tomorrow. Too bad we have to wait an entire year to get this chance again. I’m working on the 2017 workshop dates now. Please consider joining the mailing list to be kept informed of upcoming events. Just click the button below.
