Berry College, a private liberal arts institution nestled on 26,000 acres outside of Rome, Georgia is not just an educational institution, but also an education for the senses. The Berry campus is simply a sight to see. From the photogenic cut stone complex built by Henry Ford in the 1920’s, to the college’s mountain campus, the old mill waterwheel and more, there is so much to photograph. Join Ledra as she leads you through her alma mater. A lot has changed over the years since she graduated, but the things that make Berry a breathtakingly beautiful campus are still there for all to see.
We will visit the most historic and photogenic areas of the campus. It will be a very full half-day photography experience.
This workshop starts at 8:00am on Sunday and ends around 12pm. We will meet on the Berry College Campus at 8:00am. Further instructions will be given closer to the start of the workshop.
Full payment is required to hold your place in the workshop. No refunds will be issued after September 15, 2024 unless we can fill your space. (See our Policies page for our refund and cancellation policy.)
For this Workshop:
Accessories - You do not need to purchase any specific equipment for this workshop. With that said, however, there are a couple of filters that are very important to possess and whose effects cannot be replicated in Photoshop. A circular polarizer is very commonly used in landscape photography, especially when shooting water and blue skies. We recommend you get one for all your lenses eventually if you do any outdoor shooting. Also a neutral density filter for smoothing out moving water (although there is only one place you MIGHT use one for this workshop).
Long lens - Also, if you have a very long lens, bring it. If the eagles are on their nest you will need it. Something 300mm or longer will be required to get eagle shots. Please do not buy a long lens specifically for this workshop as the eagles may not be present and are only about 10% of the shooting we will do that day even if they are.
Weather – Seasonal weather is unpredictable. Ideally you should dress in layers for this workshop to be prepared for whatever the weather throws at us. Have a jacket and possibly some gloves handy in the car. Make sure to bring rain gear for both you and for your camera gear (just in case) and please wear comfortable, sturdy shoes as well.
