The Carolina Camera Club will be holding its next 2013 field trip on Saturday, April 13th at Pearson’s Falls, Saluda, NC.
This is another opportunity get out and shoot with other club members. For those looking to increase your skills, think of them as mentors in this outdoor classroom.
The Pearson’s Falls property has a variety of easily accessible wildflowers that should be in full bloom.
Pearson’s Falls is owned and operated by the Tryon Garden Club. There is a $5 admission fee to the falls which goes toward the upkeep of the falls. This can be paid at the entrance.
I’ve made arrangements to have the gate open to us at 9:30 AM to let us beat the crowds and get the best light.
Some items you may want to bring, besides your camera, is a tripod, any diffusers and deflectors you might have, flash unit with off-camera cord, your polarizing filter, water and lunch.
For directions, please visit their website at: www.pearsonsfalls.org and click on Directions.
A tip: If the weather looks like it will be inclement (light rain or mist), please try to make an extra effort to be there. Waterfalls are best captured in those conditions. Macro photography can also be excellent during high overcast or misty days.
On occasion, the property around the falls is not opened when raining.
If it is a light rain or mist, I know of a little known spot nearby that has wonderful display of various wildflowers.
Also, the garden club would like a list of members who will be coming. Please RSVP to me if you might be coming by Wednesday, April 10th.
