Having photographer Jeff Willhelm participate at Carolina Captured "9" is a big plus. A thirty year veteran photographer and editor for the Charlotte Observer… no doubt, Jeff has seen it all… and shot it all too! And another plus, Jeff lives and works primarily in the western portion of the newspaper’s readership, which includes some of the mountain and foothill regions we will be exploring during the workshop. Check out this collection of images and note Jeff’s attention to the “decisive moment” and his skill at reacting to people and events. Jeff will be at Wildacres on Sunday, sharing his work and giving feedback to students during the final critique. Want to participate? Check out the website and register: www.carolinacaptured.com

John will work with students throughout the weekend and will answer participant questions such as “what's the best file type to use for image capture?,” “what’s the best workflow for transferring files from camera to computer?”, “how do I manage color, sharpness, contrast etc. to achieve satisfactory results?” and “how do I organize my work so that I can easily find and access my image files?” Whether working on location in North Carolina, with models in mountain locales, or photographing in foreign places, John's images represent an ability to capture people and landscape and react to visual "moments". Here is a small sample of John's work. 

Sign up now for a great weekend of photography in the North Carolina Mountains. Find out how: www.carolinacaptured.com

One of the new benefits of Carolina Captured is our Google + page, set up by Ron Donson (thanks Ron!) and known as “carolina captured alumni”. This is a community page. Anyone that takes the class will be invited to become a member and given access to the community. This is an incredibly active community where past participants are uploading images throughout the year, (almost daily), and sharing them with Carolina Captured instructors and alumni. I’ve been amazed at how much material has been shared and talked about in this forum and how much growth has occurred. Glad to see that the workshop has, at least, spawned new ideas and direction for some hard working photographers that are producing new and innovative work. We also learn from each other by sharing and discussing articles and web-links related to art and photography. I’ll post some screen shots of the page to give you an idea of what goes on…

Dr. John McQuade is a cardiologist from New Bern, NC and a long time Carolina Captured participant. John’s work was impressive during the 2012 workshop. His interpretation of the subjects and locations visited reveals a sophisticated vision. This album contains a sampling of John’s images made during last year’s class. The photographs depict many of the locations and subjects we explore each October.

"Carolina Captured exposes photographers to the diverse visual subject matter that exists in the North Carolina mountains. The obvious beauty of the natural environment is part of it. Visits to places of historic and cultural significance are another, rich aspect of this workshop. I have been a devotee of Carolina Captured for 7 years. I always leave this workshop with new and exciting insights, inspired by the instructors and places we visit.” John McQuade MD, New Bern, NC

Come explore the North Carolina mountains and bring back exciting photos and inspiration: www.carolinacaptured.com

Steve White is a three-time CarolinaCaptured participant frequently found at Wildacres participating in “gatherings” or joining the infamous Wildacres Writer’s Workshop. Steve produced an excellent photo at the apple orchard at Altapass during last year's CarolinaCaptured 7. Here is how he "got the shot," in his own words:

“The repeated patterns of apple trees in neat lines and their pruning-tortured shapes make for a variety of landscape possibilities. The long shadows of early morning further enhance the possibilities. This year I decided to try something minimal…a shot of the backlit silhouettes of trees against the rising sun. I scouted for over twenty minutes, looking for just the right silhouette that I could frame against the rising sun. Just minutes before the sun breached the line of dark mountains, I found these two young trees at the south edge of the orchard on a small rise. By lying flat on the cold ground, I managed to get most of their trunks framed against the sky. I had no tripod, so I stabilized the camera (a Leica V-LUX1) on a cairn of rocks I quarried with my fingernails from the gravel road. Taking advantage of the ease of bracketing made by digital technology, I shot a series just as the top of the sun's disk began to clear the horizon. This shot was the most satisfying of the lot.”

Steve is a retired CIA analyst from Singers Glen, Virginia.

I would like to take a moment to thank Bill Carson, the owner of the Orchard at Altapass. Bill has always granted our workshop carte blanche access... and we have certainly taken advantage of his generosity. This special location on the Blue Ridge Parkway is a very unique spot. A working apple orchard but also a visual feast for image makers. We try and teach students to capitalize on the variety of visual elements that exist here... from the elegant lines created by terraced pathways, to the sculpted and broken shapes of the aged, legacy trees. Participants learn how to experience the orchard as artist photographers. Bring back your own photographic masterpiece and join us in October. Thanks again Bill for eight years of inspiration!

During Carolina Captured 2010, our group met Dewayne (Archie) and Virginia Payette at Coffey's General Store in Caldwell County, NC. A part of their family legacy, they open the store upon request. Our group had a wonderful time with Archie and Virginia and photographed the relics and curiosities inside this piece of mountain history. This is a great example of how we try to offer our groups intriguing locations to photograph. The natural environment and the land and landscape... plus the people, culture, and history of western North Carolina. www.carolinacaptured.com

October 15, 2005... first morning shoot... "Carolina Captured" 2005. The Altapass Orchard, our favorite AM location for so many reasons, was covered in spiderwebs... Orb Weavers had been busy and their webs were covered in dew. There were dozens throughout the orchard...  I quickly caught two backlit, before a magnificent fog rolled in distracting everyone... more later. (KC)
