The Brotherhood Winery 4.5 hour excursion will begin across the street from DPA Headquarters to allow some landscape and waterscape photography at the Algonquin park, now on the national historic registry tributing its former existence as a gunpowder mill from 1815 to 1901, including annual peak production during the Civil War of 49 tons of gunpowder each year. The series of creeks and waterfalls which once powered the mass production of gunpowder, continue to flow and provide the opportunity to work with the shutter speed controls of your camera that allow a range of visual effects of moving water. In the park you will also have photo ops of the old stone walls that once housed the gears and machinery that were used to manufacture the gunpowder. Then of course there is also lots of lovely landscape photo ops in this conveniently located setting.
Then off we go for the 20 minute ride, caravan style, to the Brotherhood Winery where your instructor will provide composition and lighting demonstrations of the vintage wine kegs housed in the catacombs of the winery. Broad perspectives and detailed close-ups of this gothic setting rounds out the lessons learned for the day. And you can top it all off with a sampling of Brotherhood Winery beverages.
