Starry Nights & Desert Landscapes Photography Workshop
Prolific wildflower blooms, lush green forests, flowering trees and rushing streams and waterfalls over moss covered boulders and rocks makes the Great Smoky Mountains a magical place in the spring. There's good reason the Smokies are called "Wildflower National Park!" This will be Joe's seventh year leading workshops in the park dedicated to the art and technique of creative nature photography.
Dates: March 6-11, 2016
Winter light is without a doubt the best landscape light in the Moab area. Low angle light last for much longer from December - March, illuminating the red rock country and painting clouds magnificent shades of pink, red and orange. In addition to amazing light during the day, this time of the year is perfect for capturing starry night images from Milky Way photographs to star trails, the many balanced rocks and arches in the park provide the perfect subject matter for these nighttime images.
We will focus on capturing the best light during early morning/late afternoon with classroom session in the middle of the day focusing on advanced composition, developing personal vision and techniques for capturing night images & light painting.
