March 19, 6:30-8:30 a.m. Sunday Photography Workshop with Robert Sullivan. Location: Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Sunrise is a wonderful time for two reasons: it is when the wildlife is most active, and the quality of light is amazing and constantly changing. This workshop will provide information on photographing wildlife at Blackwater, as well as tips and techniques for photographing a sunrise. Participants will see – and photograph – the Blackwater refuge in ways they haven’t before.
