|Autumn Smoke, Chesterfield|
Last weekend I ran my second annual Fall Foliage Workshop. Despite the spotty color, we had a wonderful time exploring the beauty of our New England autumn. We enjoyed the color, where we found it, but also sampled the special character of our region during this unique time of year.

We broke up Friday evening with some rough plans for the next day’s itinerary, but the only thing that we could be entirely sure about was that we would all meet Saturday morning at 7:30 in my driveway.
I always say that, despite the conditions, there is always something to shoot in New England, and this foliage workshop was a valid test. I knew we could find areas of color, but I decided to direct our tour to spots that would provide interest beyond just colorful trees.

It was a full day. We were exhausted, but it wasn’t over. We all returned to my house in the evening for Pizza and a chance to review the images from the day. There was some great stuff and I was happy to see improvement in technique in the pictures as the day progressed

I enjoy the workshop format and will be offering my Waterfall weekend this spring. Other possibilities include a winter workshop and possibly one on night photography.
