Waterfalls all over the place! We’re heading back to one of our favorite places to photograph waterfalls – New York’s Finger Lakes region!
Amongst the rolling hills and panoramic vistas of the glacially-carved Finger Lakes tumble some of the most scenic waterfalls in the country. There are over two hundred named falls, including Taughannock Falls, the highest in New York State. The sheer number and diversity of waterfalls makes this region truly special, and the possibilities for unique images are overwhelming. Each waterfall has its own character; some drop like bridal veils, others sluice over ledges, and some, like those in famous Watkins Glen, carve dramatic chasms. In springtime lime-green beech leaves frame the cascades. Shooting access is ideal; many are along roadsides, others within a short hike.
API staff instructors Mark Bowie and Chris Murray will be your photographic guides. They are expert waterfall and stream photographers that know the region well. They'll take you to waterfalls both spectacular and sublime, and provide lots of personalized instruction in the field.
After an initial orientation session on Sunday night, we will spend 3 days exploring and photographing waterfalls around Ithaca and Watkins Glen, NY. Possible locations include Taughannock Falls, the Cascadilla Gorge, Robert H. Treman, and Watkins Glen State Parks. We’ll also visit some beautiful lesser-known falls.
Field lessons will emphasize compositional and artistic considerations, with tips and techniques on:
