Take A Picture! Landscape Photography For Beginners

You’re in the mountains! Who wouldn’t want the perfect picture? Professional photographer and Blue Moon Gallery owner Rob Travis will spend the day with a small group to introduce the concept of still life photography with a very intimate photography class. As an artist in glass, pencil, watercolors and other medium, Rob finally settled on photography to convey the enormity and wonder of the world around us. Looking for waterfalls and scenery near Asheville and Brevard? Rob will help you capture that one special moment in time by discussing everything from macrophotography and digital SLR to taking the perfect shot on your iPhone and how to properly use your equipment and camera. For other things to do in Pisgah National Forest, use your newfound knowledge to hit the best trails in Pisgah and DuPont State Forest and savor the view in your own home with your perfect picture. During the course of the workshop, you’ll also have the opportunity to view and purchase Rob’s incredible photography on display. Please bring a sack lunch or purchase from our café, equipment and owner’s manual. Pre-registration is required. This is a rain or shine event! Please see our calendar of events below to register.
