Workshop Report
Big Bend, April 2016
Thomas J. Avery Photography

__

Workshop Details:
Instructor: Thomas J. Avery
Students: 12
Dates: April 5 - 9, 2016
Focus: Landscape and Night Photography

_
This was an interesting event. We had tough luck shooting the Milky Way due to weather (too many clouds!).

We practiced quite a bit with light painting. And we finally had one crystal-clear morning with the Milky Way showing brightly.

The landscape was amazing. Cactus blooms everywhere!

A total of 12 students attended. Thank you all for coming!
