Want to take better photos of your BMW?  Come join us for a day of cars, photography, and wine at the beautiful Barrel Oak Winery (BOW) in Delaplane, Virginia, hosted by CCA member and professional photographer Dwayne Renard!

Dwayne will teach you camera basics and help take your camera out of "automatic mode" to capture better photographs of your BMW.  Important camera functions such as ISO, shutter speed, and aperture will be explained and demonstrated.  Techniques of compostion, exposure, and lighting will also be discussed.

We will enjoy a nice, scenic ride out to the winery and arrive by 9am. Please note that while the winery's driveway is not long, it is unpaved, so remember to bring your detailing supplies to shine up your cars. The folks at BOW are nice enough to allow us time to photograph our cars before the winery opens to the public at 11am.  Wine tastings are $11.00 per person.

We will have our own roped off private parking area as well.

After the photoshoot, we will drive out to AKA Friscos in Frederick, Maryland. Rated 4.5 stars out of 5 on Yelp, this is an all-time favorite gourmet/casual lunch spot where their motto is 'A gathering place for the hungry'. Their humongous sandwiches, salads, and killer 'Exploded Potatoes' are not to be missed! Plus, they have an enormous selection of craft beers and wines. Here's their extensive menu and I urge everyone to check it out before you get there:

AKA Friscos menu: Part 1 & Part 2

AKA Friscos has plenty of seating throughout the building including an upstairs level, outside patio, and their main dining area. There's also plenty of parking surrounding the building in neighboring lots.

Photography experience requirements: NONE! Dwayne's love of photography is unrivaled and he can work with those who show up with no camera background to those amateur photographers looking to expand their skill set.

Camera requirements: any digital camera will work, but for best results we suggest an SLR with at least a standard 18-55mm zoom, fully charged battery, and 16 GB memory card.  A tripod is helpful, but not mandatory. Dwayne will have a few to share.

Registration will open June 1st at $10 per car and is limited to the first 30 cars.
