April 27, 2013 : Central Upstate New York is blessed to have many interesting waterfalls for us to enjoy and, of course, photograph. We have a variety of waterfalls to photograph, ranging from the towering Chittenango Falls to the crashing Bucktail Falls and (weather permitting) the meandering waters "above the falls" at Tinker Falls, with many possibilities in between. Each is different and offers opportunities to use a broad range of photographic tools, techniques and technologies. We'll leave early, before sunrise, to capture that special morning light. We'll photograph while the sun is high in the sky to discover how to overcome both its brightness and the resulting high contrast and wrap-up as the sun sets, hoping for that special pre- and post- sunset light. It's a long, rewarding day providing many opportunities to learn and test new skills as well as to practice others.
