Great Falls of the Potomac River is truly the greatest natural wonder of the DC area, and there is no better time to photograph it than at dawn.
Join Corey Hilz and photograph the early morning splendor of the falls from the overlook in Maryland, as well as some of the nearby sights such as the C&O Canal and Great Falls Tavern. Learn how to shoot in low light, capture flowing water, exploit the rising sun, compose waterscapes, and more.
We may also be fortunate enough to see and photograph some Great Blue herons.
A DSLR or mirrorless camera with lenses in the range of 12mm to 200mm (35mm equivalent)
Sturdy tripod is a must.
Participants should be familiar with their camera and the settings as we'll be working in low light for the first portion of the class.
COVID Safety Practices: Masks are optional.

What People Are Saying About Corey
"Corey Hilz never disappoints! I have taken several classes and workshops with Corey and I always come away with more photographic knowledge and insight than before. Not only does he have great vision, he is also technically savvy, making him a guru in the field and in the classroom. Corey is patient with all of his students regardless of level, and he makes his explanations easily understandable. I can’t recommend Corey enough if you are contemplating a workshop or class with him."
"Corey makes one feel confident. Yes, Corey truly is a gifted teacher, and he is able to clearly explain complex concepts to a complete novice."
"I've done enough photo workshops to know that some instructors are good in the field while others are good in the classroom. Corey is outstanding in both! In the field he has an uncanny ability to show up just when you need his help. His comments are always constructive and nonjudgmental. He lends his equipment freely (he got me hooked on Lensbaby) and encourages you to try new techniques. In the classroom, his teaching is methodical and logical. He shows you how to make the most of the digital darkroom with the software that you have (and then he shows you again using the software you wish you had). Corey is a natural teacher."
"I completed the Lightroom in a Day class with Corey Hilz today. This class far exceeded my expectations. I was admittedly skeptical of the long list of topics to be covered in one day but Corey is a gifted instructor and he presented a large amount of technically complex materials in a very easy to understand clear, concise, and coherent in manner."
"Corey Hilz did an excellent job of outlining the goals for the class, reinforcing some key concepts and adjustments relevant to the indoor environment, and providing guidance and feedback on composition. There was ample time to practice and Corey circulated among the group to review photos, provide helpful feedback, and answer questions. Extremely satisfied with the experience"
