Moore State Park, with its pond and waterfalls, is the perfect location to try out filters. Learn how to capture waterfalls like a pro.

If you’ve ever wondered what the heck all those filters were for, this workshop is perfect for you. Learn about the different types of filters and how to properly use them, and how to capture flowing water with an artistic effect that is often not possible without one. We will be offering up several different filters for you to try if you don’t already have your own.

What You'll Learn
  • Composition

  • Importance of Lighting and Timing

  • Exposure refresher

  • How to use filters and polarizers

  • Waterfall photography

  • Long exposures

Recommended Equipment
Physical Difficulty

Standing and walking on grass, gravel paths, and pavement. There is a great perspective from the bottom of the Sawmill, but it is downhill and can be steep, and slippery when wet. Optional, not required.

Meeting Details

We will meet at the main parking area at 1 Sawmill Rd, Paxton, MA and then take a 5 minute walk down to the pond and waterfall area.
