    Photographing the cypress swamps in autumn in the south has become en vogue recently. I recently shot in Louisiana for the first time and loved it. We are fortunate to be teaming up with local photographer, Charlie Bush for this unique workshop as he has shot the swamps for many years and has the knowledge to get us in the right places at the right time. While many of the other competing workshops require participants to paddle in a kayak, we will be employing a local boat guide to get us out at sunrise for 3 mornings in a flat bottom motorized boat. There is also good birding at this time of year as well, so we will keep busy with a variety of subject matter. A bonus with this workshop class is the fact we will get to sample some fine Cajun cooking at local restaurants! 

    Equipment Suggestions:

    A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest an SLR camera with a wide-angle lens (15-35mm range), a 24-105mm lens is my workhorse on these trips, and a medium telephoto lens up to 100-500mm.
