This weekend was the CAPTURE Virginia creation photography workshop! Four photographers came. The goal was to exercise photography techniques in the classroom of creation. As we traveled from place to place, we put into practice the things we wanted to get better at, like how to comfortably shoot in full Manual, how to compose better shots, and how to use long exposures for better pictures.

That afternoon, we found some good subjects to photograph with long exposures at Falling Water Cascades along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
