A red Yosemite, complete with plunging cliffs, towering slot canyons, and roaring rivers.
We will kick off the workshop Wednesday afternoon with an informal meet and greet session. Students will have a chance to meet, mingle, and discuss what images they want to achieve. We will cover and discuss a loose location schedule for the weekend. Landscape shooting is very weather dependent so we are keep our locations and timing fluid. Zion National Park offers some of the most dramatic and colorful scenery in the American Southwest. During the mornings we will explore fall foliage, seek out inner canyon hideaways in the afternoon, and scout into the evening while waiting for the light of sunset to arrive. Zion National Park is a fantastic place for black and white images so we will spend time exploring such techniques. Voluntary night photography sessions (weather dependent) will be available for those with some energy left over. Before heading home Sunday afternoon we will wrap up the workshop with a final image review session. Fall weather in Zion National Park can be cold by night so bring appropriate (non cotton) layers.
What You'll Learn:
With such varied and amazing terrain, this workshop will provide a wide range of lessons. As always we be covering technical points such as camera setup, camera settings, and digital workflow. Creatively we will focus on things like composition, light recognition, shutter effects, and subject selection. We will have the chance to explore plenty of dynamic subjects such as moving water, autumn leaves, starry skies, and hopefully vivid sunrises and sunsets. The entire workshop will serve as a lesson in scouting and planning. If night skies are clear, addition night photography lessons will be available for those with enough energy. Each student will receive ample 1 on 1 guidance and images critiques throughout the weekend. Daily post processing demonstrations and tutorials help guarantee that your images continually improve throughout the workshop. Most importantly you'll learn how to have fun and relish the adventure!
