New Meetup: Fall Workshop in Death Valley

From: Rick R.
Sent on: Sunday, November 21, 2010 2:20 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for Huntington Beach Photography Meetup Group!

What: Fall Workshop in Death Valley

When: Saturday, December 11,[masked]:00 AM

Price: $200.00 per person

Where: Death Valley
Mojave Desert
Beatty, NV 89003

Come spend a weekend learning landscape techniques and shooting the amazing landscape of Death Valley.

Dates: December 11-12th

The weather is perfect now! Not too hot and not too cool in the evening. Weather should be gorgeous with days in the 75-85 degree range and nights in the 50-60 degree range so come prepared with layered clothing. Bring lots of water.

I have been photographing and (more importantly) leading workshops to Death Valley for over thirty years. Come along with this Old Desert Rat who really knows the area, not some guy who attended one workshop there and now wants to lead his own.

We will officially start early (8am) on Saturday morning and end Sunday after sunset. Plan to arrive on Friday evening. For those that get there earlier enough we will have an informal get-together dinner to talk about the weekend and photography.

My last workshop to DV produced some great images for the enthusiastic photographers that were there. You can view some of my images here:
Included in that gallery are "before and after" images showing the image processing and HDR techniques that I will be teaching.

Topics include:

1. Exposure and learning to love the Histogram
2. White balance
3. RAW or jpeg?
4. Composition
5. Techniques to emphasize depth in a scene
6. How to create beautiful landscape images
7. Panoramas!

As an added bonus the workshop will include some demonstrations on a number of exciting techniques including:

1. Light painting
2. HDR and my own modified version of HDR

Plan to get up early and shoot for most of the day with breaks for meals (not provided).

We will be based in a great little Nevada town that is pretty cool and close by. The motel rooms run around $50/night (not included). This is not Vegas and it's pretty laid back. :)

For those that are interested we will follow the weekend with a critique session about 30 days later. At that time I will also demonstrate my post processing HDR techniques.

Come along. We'll have a great weekend!

Workshop fee covers workshop only. Travel, meals, motel are not included. A detailed information sheet with motel information and itinerary will be provided upon signing up.

Questions? Email me.

Carpooling can be arranged. Why drive up alone when you can make the drive with another photographer?

See you there!
