Full Moon and Wind-Swept Dunes at White Sands National Monument, New Mexico
September 3-7, 2017 (HURRY - 1 SPOT REMAINS)
My 2016 White Sands National Park Workshop was such a hit, I have decided to offer it again this September 3-7, 2017.
White Sands is truly a Park to inspire the artist inside of you. Miles and miles of wind-carved pristine dunes presents a palette of endless composition possibilities. Lines, textures, highlight/shadows present a variety of artistic compositions. Add in (4) dawn and sunrise shoots and (4) late-afternoon and sunset shoots and the dunes become a visual treat!
White Sands National Monument photographs beautifully under cloudy, partly cloudy and even clear sky days. Chances are good that we will get a mix of all these conditions.
In total, we will have the moon available for 6 of our 8 planned location shoots!
Further, we will have one evening to photograph moonlit dunes!
Early afternoons will consist of classroom training helping you to improve your workflow techniques. I will also have (3) image review sessions (optional of course) but designed to help improve both vision and workflow skills. We will also have (2) morning sessions on how to photograph under moonlight conditions and I will demonstrate my Lightroom workflow.
I will have a second qualified instructor for this workshop.
