Sequioa National Park Landscape Master Class with National Park Photography Expeditions
September 10 - September 15
Samy’s Photo school is proud to partner with National Park Photographic Expeditions to provide our students with exceptional Workshops in our nation’s most scenic national parks. Bob Killen and his staff of national park Artist-in-Residence instructors will help you access intuitive, reflective ways of working that will lead you to create great landscape images. These classes provide hands-on, mentored learning in the field and ample classroom time with your instructor to teach you a capture to post-production workflow (end to creative end workflow) using Lightroom and Photoshop.
Sequoia National Park Workshop Summary
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 elements across a John Muir meadow and go eye to eye with a sundown that stretches as far as you can see from atop Mora Rock.
