Fall Foliage Photo Workshop Oct. 29

Jill M. Rohrbach
October in the Ozarks is one of the most beautiful months to photograph nature. The rich reds and yellows of the fall foliage add to any photo. If you’re interested in learning how to take better photographs or just need to brush up on your skills, take the Fall Foliage Photo Workshop from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 29 at Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area in Rogers.

Professional photographer Kathy Mayhue is the instructor. I am fortunate enough to have one of her beautiful nature shots gracing my office wall.

Instruction begins in the classroom, then moves to the woods. Participants should wear comfortable outdoor clothing, and bring water and a snack. A light lunch will be provided. If you have a tripod and additional lenses, bring those too so she can show you more creative opportunities. She plans to help each person individually as well as within a group format.

After the shoot, you’ll return to the classroom where Mayhue will present a short slide show of her collection of nature photos. She’ll load the digital images from each participant onto her computer to show the different ways photographers look at the same subject.

The cost of the workshop is $45 per person. Space is limited. Call 479-789-5000 to make your reservation. The park visitor center is located on Ark. 12 just east of the Ark. 12/War Eagle Road intersection.
