Henry Mill River Village at Night (Hickory, NC)

Saturday, September 25, 5-9pm

Cost: $150 (8 spots available)

Join us for this socially-distanced and relatively new evening outing to the little mill village on Henry River. Just off the interstate past Hickory, NC, is a glimpse into life of the old days as well as an opportunity to capture building images. Known as the District 12 of the Hunger Games movie, you will get to photograph the exteriors of many mill houses from the outside and then the interior of one building as well all in the evening light. What is even more unique though about this Expedition offering is that we have specifically designed this time to happen partially at night so we can learn and do light painting. By using various light sources and a long time exposures, participants will experience and photograph all the creativity that comes from working with light at night. The group will be kept to a smaller size and there will be 2 stations of scenes offered each hour so that all the students should get 4 different images. All the light painting tools and work will be provided so that students can spend their time just capturing images.

We will meet there in our own vehicles. The cost is $150 and this includes private admission so that we have the place to ourselves. Minimum 4, Maximum 8 participants will make this a small size group so that our instructors can help you for the entire shoot.
