Features and those ‘close but not quite’ photos from the Mountain Workshop – Berea, KY

Had the privilege of taking part in the 39th annual Mountain Workshops which was held in Berea, KY this year.

These are my features along with the features that just didn’t quite make it.

 The close but not quite

this image was a drive by, but by the time I parked and got out the woman was back inside. Would’ve liked working this scene if she hadn’t disappeared.

chilling

This was one of those ‘Yes you can photograph us, no I’m not giving you my name’ moments. A photographers dream.

This was a nice frame I’d be happy to come back with any day, but by working the scene enabled me to find the hopscoth photo from earlier and make a stronger frame.

Just a nice frame of the colors in the mountains but nothing more than that.

This would’ve been a nice frame if the car wasn’t there, but by the time it was gone the two gentleman were too far separated.

This photo I really liked but more people liked the tighter frame on the cow just against the barn.
