Salmon River Photo Clinic - June 13, 2015
I have just announced a one day workshop at the Old Salmon River Trail near Welches, Oregon. CLICK HERE to register. The trail is about an hour away from Portland near Mount Hood. It was established in the late 1800's as a hunting trail by the pioneers of the area including Samuel Welch and his son Billy Welch, who the little town of Welches is named for.
The trail parallels the Wild and Scenic Salmon River. The only river in the U.S. designated Wild and Scenic from it's source to its terminus. This clear beautiful river is a very photogenic feature along the way. The main attraction of this trail are the huge trees and mossy scenes that you walk through in this rain forest cathedral.
The trail is fairly easy but does require a certain amount of physical ability. We will hit the trail about 9am and will stroll with no certain agenda other than to enjoy the scenery, get some amazing photos and enjoy each other's company.
During the trek Gary will be covering how to make the shot. He will discuss composition and balancing the light to get the shot. He will cover camera function and purpose as well as composition. If you are a beginner, this is perfect for you. If you're an intermediate shooter this is perfect for you as well. Gary doesn't assume anything is able to start at the point of your need and, hopefully fill in some blanks. There will be no hands on processing work in this workshop but I will be discussing processing as we shoot. I'll be passing along a lot of info.
In addition to photography Gary loves to talk about the history of the area as well as the natural features.
Bring a sack lunch and we'll break for a picnic among the trees and moss, weather permitting as this is an all weather event. Dress appropriately. 🙂
If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.
I'm looking forward to sharing my approach to landscape photography with those that decide to tag along. We're going to have a blast!!
