Take a photo and Brown County roads less traveled

Indiana Nature Photography will host a one-day Backroads Tour of Brown County workshop on Oct. 28, focusing on the county’s world-famous fall color display.

Working with landscape photographer Gary Morrison and nature photographer/author Steven Higgs, participants will gain hands-on experience capturing the seasonal colors, from intimate to panoramic landscapes.

“We will visit some of the most photogenic areas of the state and work on capturing the natural beauty of a southern Indiana fall day,” Morrison said.

The workshop is open to anyone interested in nature photography, from cellphone snappers to advanced shooters. It will feature group demonstrations and one-on-one instruction with the instructors at remote locations in and around Yellowwood State Forest in Brown County and Monroe Lake. It will involve short hikes.

Morrison is a southern Indiana native who, after a career as a professor, retired to Bloomington to pursue his passion for landscape photography.

Higgs is a journalist who has photographed the southern Indiana hills for almost a half century. He is author of “A Guide to Natural Areas of Southern Indiana” (IU Press, 2016). He is working on a coffee table book, “Rewilding Southern Indiana: The Hoosier National Forest.”
