Death Valley is the lowest, driest, and hottest place in North America. Its extreme geology provides otherworldly photography opportunities that are unique unto themselves. Its salt pans, sand dunes, and cracked earth textures are a feast for the eyes and the camera. And contrary to its name, Death Valley is teeming with life. In Spring, desert wildflowers bloom and carpet the desert floor with colorful blossoms.
This multi-day photography workshop will help photographers create memorable photos of the fascinating and beautiful features Death Valley has to offer. The workshop focuses on understanding your camera’s settings in order to break into new creative realms. There is a strong emphasis on producing striking and powerful compositions, as well as telling a story with your photos. The workshop will cover shoot planning and how to be in the right place at the right time. Depending on conditions, the workshop will introduce students to aspects of night photography and light-painting. In addition, the workshop will discuss post-processing and digital work flow. This workshop is limited to 8 students.
