Blackwater Wildlife Refuge Photo Tour

Marsh SerenityMarsh Serenity In FlightIn Flight No matter the season, there is always something to photograph at Blackwater Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge, Maryland.  Great blue herons, bald eagles, red-winged blackbirds, Canada geese, and white egrets are common birds here year round.  In addition to birds, there are gorgeous marsh landscapes, both inside and outside of the refuge.

Just outside the refuge, a newly opened museum dedicated to the life of Harriet Tubman offers plenty of history, and informational signs along the roadways point out Underground Railroad landmarks.


Red-winged BlackbirdRed-winged Blackbird On this tour, we will focus on birds in flight, landscapes at sunrise and at sunset, and discovering gems like abandoned farmhouses and lone trees.  The tour will also include visits to the museum and to historic downtown Cambridge.

In the classroom, we’ll use Lightroom to import, organize, and edit the photos, and Photoshop to remove minor distractions or to combine images.   You will learn from the photos you take, so that you can apply your knowledge to the next photo shoot.
