Have you ever wanted to photograph the haunting cypress swamps? Looking for an affordable, yet action packed day of photography and learning? If so, consider joining me for this special one day workshop shooting the Autumn Cypress of Caddo Lake State Park in Texas. The workshop will begin at sunrise in Caddo Lake State Park at Mill Pond where we will have access to photograph (from land and boardwalk) amazing cypress swamps landscapes in autumn color. After a 2-3 hour morning session at the pond, we will head into Marshall, Texas for a brunch break followed by a 2 hour classroom session where Joe will teach you all of his image development workflow & tips for specifically processing autumn swamp photographs. After class finishes up, we will head back to Mill Pond to Shoot late afternoon/sunset light in the swamp once again.

The workshop will conclude after our sunset shoot.
