Capturing Fall Colors
with Ken Hupila
Saturday, September 25, 2021
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Be a part of an autumn tradition in the North Country – observing and photographing fall color! This class will provide a one hour orientation on techniques and equipment utilization while in the field. We’ll then take our gear into the Superior National Forest and look for numerous vistas, unique perspectives, cozy vignettes and macro work. With luck we may come across some forest critters as a bonus!
Class will meet initially at the Ely Folk School. Bring lunch, camera and gear - manual, all lenses, tripod, remote release, circular polarizer (if you have it) - and rubber boots. Dress for the weather. You may choose to carpool or caravan, dependent on public health and personal comfort.
