From ocean sunrises, historic light houses, rolling dunes, charming costal villas and sunsets on the sound....and if we're lucky we will even get to photograph marsh birds, wild horses and black bears...oh my!
Join Natural Connections Photo Workshops in May on the Outer Banks of beautiful North Carolina.
You are going to get an amazing cross-section of the Outer Banks on this trip. Of course we will explore the natural beauty of the area, but we we will photograph some pretty amazing man-made structures as well - lighthouses, bridges and piers will help to anchor some of our sunrises and sunsets.
And then there are the animals. We will be in search of the region's famous wild horses on the beaches and also be on the hunt for black bears in the nature preserve.
This workshop starts at 3pm on Friday, May 3rd and ends in the evening of Tuesday, May 7.

But you could have some traffic issues in trying to the Outer Banks. Anyone in the Southeast may wish to consider driving. We will be coming out of Atlanta and we are driving it....about 9 hours.
Major car rental companies are available at or near the airport. Participants will need to arrange their own transportation to, from, and during the workshop. We will ask people to carpool to some of the shoots for efficiency's sake.
Accessories - we do not require that you purchase any specific equipment for this workshop. With, that said, however, there are a couple of filters that we feel are very important whose effects cannon be replicated in Photoshop. A circular polarizer is a must for landscape photography. Also, you may wish to have a 3-stop neutral density filter for getting long shutter speeds for smoothing out water shots. If you have ANY questions about these filters, please feel free to ask.
Climate - the Outer Banks in Spring can be cold and windy....or not. Layers is the key. Bring a variety of clothes and definitely something for extremities - gloves, hat and scarf.
Weather -This workshop could involve different shooting environments, so be prepared for whatever the weather may bring. Be sure to bring rain gear for you and your camera gear.
