Sequoia National Park
August 14-19, 2018
Sequoia National Park is a dramatic landscape of giant Sequoia Trees, rugged foothills, deep canyons, and thundering waterfalls that spill off the glacial rock. For the landscape photographer this a land of Majestic Scenes that provide a plein air classroom for a visual study of light and shadow among the big trees.
In this Landscape Master Class, you will learn specialized exposure concepts that will create photographic art from the lay of giant fuzzy shadows among the halos of twinkling sunlight. Short hikes position our students to explore rushing streams and waterfalls and learn to compose them in splashing detail as well as using smooth motion to reduce them to visual whispers. We will spend time juxtaposing ground and figure across a John Muir meadow, and learn how to capture the night sky with snow-capped mountains as reflective elements. Go eye to eye with a sundown that stretches as far as you can see from atop Little Baldy and do a full visual study of a controlled burn of Lodgepole Pines.
