Zion, Bryce Canyon, Secret Slot Canyons, and ASTRO 5 day workshop $495.00

BEST WESTERN PLUS Ruby's Inn

$495.00

Let's CAPTURE BEAUTIFUL ZION AND BRYCE CANYON IN FALL, with a trip to a SECRET SLOT CANYON. (hoodoos in the early morning light) This is a FIVE DAY FIELD WORKSHOP WITH CLASSROOM TIME AND IMAGE REVIEW. (wall street at Bryce Canyon) (shooting in wall street) (praying Hoodoo) Once the calendar turns to November it doesn't mean it's time to yearn for next October to once again shoot some beautiful fall color...You just have to travel a bit! Fall color is so darn short-lived! Just about the time you're hitting your groove and have things figured out...it's over and done for another year. It seems I'm always wishing for that one more weekend of good autumn shooting...Well here's another chance: The weather has turned cool, the crowds are gone and the scenery is breathtaking! There's just something special about the red rock of Bryce and The remote countryside outside of Bryce. We will start our adventures each day shooting the amazing Sunrise in Bryce Canyon and the surrounding areas. WE WILL SPEND ONE EVENING SHOOTING ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY IN BRYCE CANYON. Bryce is one of THE DARKEST AREAS IN THE US. You can see over 2000 starts with the naked eye. And the best part is you don't have to stay out until 4 am to get the shots. it gets plenty dark in the canyon by 10pm. Throughout the five days we will discuss proper field photography techniques, early morning and late evening light as well as composition and design considerations. We will have "classroom" sessions, image review, and editing tips and tricks each day of the workshop. (the hike down into Navaho Trail) There will be some moderate hiking with slight elevation changes, most of the shooting locations are very close to the car and lookout points. Prior to the workshop, I will discuss with each attendee an equipment list and a shooting plan for the weekend...I will aim to stretch your creative boundaries on this trip! There will not be any lengthy or difficult hikes on this trip although one should be prepared to do some moderate walks of up to a mile or so. Dress in layers and plan to travel light. • This workshop is limited to 8 participants • Plan to fly into Vegas on October 31st. • I LIKE TO RENT A SUV SO WE CAN ALL RIDE TOGETHER TO THE SHOOTING LOCATIONS. WE CAN ALSO SPLIT THE COST OF THE SUV TO SAVE COST. • Lodging, Transportation and Meal Costs are NOT included in the Event Price. I will help take care of travel and Lodging details. Lodging rates are approximately $60 per night. The cost of this Photo Tour/Workshop is $495.00 I do require a nonrefundable deposit of $125.00 to secure your spot.

This is an introductory class covering the basics of processing your jpeg and raw images, you don't need to own laptop or editing software to attend, BUT BRING ONE IF YOU HAVE ONE. This course covers the BASIC STEPS required to get final images that POP! I will cover using LIGHTROOM, PHOTOSHOP, LUMINAR, AURORA and Simple FREE programs like Snapseed, and Pixlr. You’ll learn how to adjust exposure to take advantage of the full range of lighting captured in your original image. You’ll discover how to see unwanted color casts in your photographs and learn quick ways to reduce and eliminate those. You will also be shown how to crop your images to obtain improved compositions. Contrast and saturation adjustments are essential to creating fine photographs, and you will learn how to use these as well. The last step in editing is sharpening. This is a critical stage in the editing process. You will see how to sharpen like a professional. Through knowledgeable editing, you’ll come to possess an increased ability to create images that will excite you and others more than ever before. You’ll leave this workshop with greater capacity to advance your unique photographic vision. This workshop will be offered bi-monthly and personal instruction is available upon request. "This workshop opened up a whole new world of editing to me! I used to feel like Lightroom was a big, mysterious monster I had to battle LOL (lets' face it, it IS daunting when you first open it! )... and I wasn't going to back down! I took home what I learned in Thomas' workshop and worked with it and experimented and I'm so excited because I now can actually USE the program instead of running away! Thanks, Thomas. Well done!"-Debbie M. Thank you and as always feel free to contact me with any questions. Tom [masked] [masked]
