Workshop Report
Big Bend, October 2014
Thomas J. Avery Photography

__

Workshop Details:
Instructor: Thomas J. Avery
Students: 10
Dates: October 21 - 25, 2014
Focus: Landscape and Night Photography

_
Amazing time in the Big Bend! Great clouds, fog, wildflowers, and dark, clear night skies.

I took the group to several new places for night photography that I had scouted in advance. We had a lot of cloud cover early that week, but things cleared off nicely for us a day into the workshop.

A total of 12 people (included two spouse/guests) attended. The group was fun and easy going. Hearing a few cheers of excitement during our first night photography session was a rewarding experience :-)
