The workshop is now open to men, women, couples, singles, and "it's complicated"s.
" It's complicated" is going on men and women, or couples and singles?
If you don't care why would you comment?

By popular request, there will be two local(ish) one-day workshops in the upcoming fall foliage season. Being that Sukkos is smack in the middle of the season, the workshops will bookend Yom Tov.

We will meet mid-morning (exact time TBD based on group preferences) and continue until after sunset. If anyone wants, we could meet up earlier for a sunrise shoot as well, then join the others afterwards.

Option 1: Sunday, October 9, in Minnewaska State Park. See here for a short trip report of last year's Minnewaska trip, and here for a different perspective.

Option 2: Sunday, October 30. Exact location TBD, due to it likely being a smidgen too late for NY - the leaves will most likely be past-peak. Based on historical foliage data, this will most likely mean southern PA, or somewhere DE or MD. This means that it will be a bit further away than option 1, probably around 4 hours of driving. Hopefully we'll still have peak foliage somewhere closer to home, but we simply won't know till around a week or two before. The 4-hour drive is hopefully a worst-case scenario.

In any case, whatever the final destination, I will make sure that it's a fantastic spot for shooting - awesome foliage, great views, a lake, and so on.

This is open to everyone, and for all skill levels or equipment. As always, the better your gear the more options you have, but quite frankly even if you only bring a cell phone to this you will learn a ton and come away with some incredible photographs. I will be able to help out with gear if needed, such as tripods (with adapters for phones), filters, and so on.

The cost is $120 per person. Some people have mentioned to me that they would be interested in coming with a spouse, or coming both Sundays. Whatever the situation, let me know and we'll work something out; I'm totally flexible.

In order to make sure that everyone is able to learn and get one-on-one teaching, space is limited. The sooner you confirm your spot the better. Send me a PM here, or email me at info@morrishersko.com to reserve your slot.

Learn photography in a beautiful location (which won't be available afterwards). and listen to two numuts exchange insults at a later time.

If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

As far as location? Not yet - it's completely dependent on the foliage levels, so we won't know for another week at least.

So far it looks like half of PA will be perfect then, so something like 1-2 hours from the city. Hopefully the 4-hour drive I mentioned above will indeed be a worst case scenario.

OK, here are the details. There are still a few spots open at this time.

Based on the current foliage levels, we'll be shooting in Washington's Crossing State Park in PA. It's about an hour from Lakewood, and 1:30-1:45 from Brooklyn or Monsey (exact location).

We'll hike the trails and shoot woodsy scenes, historical mansions, the Delaware canal, an historic mill, and more - all of which will look incredible in the fall. We'll also climb to the top of the observation tower and shoot lovely views of the Delaware River. The park closes at 5, so we'll switch to a different location for sunset (exact location TBD once the latest foliage report comes out on Thursday, but it won't be very far).

There's an admission fee to both the park and the observation tower, both of which are included of course.
