Zion National Park Landscape Photography Workshop
Zion National Park
October 30 - November 5, 2010
(Sat 5:00 PM thru Friday at noon)
Instructor: Craig Tanner
Our Pledge to You
Join us in stunningly beautiful Zion National Park for 6 days of field shooting, image critique, and instruction in digital post processing techniques.
We will photograph some of the Zion’s classic locations in beautiful light, such as The Watchman, The Emerald Pools, The Court of the Patriarchs, along the Virgin River, as well as many other locations. Because of all of the reflected light along the Virgin River this workshop offers us the opportunity to work longer in the field work and do more shooting. Zion is Craig's favorite park for shooting riverscapes. Presentations cover traditional topics such as exposure and composition, and and digital darkroom techniques for post processing your images. In the field instruction and daily critique of work shot during the workshop using a digital projector are a major focus of the week.
The general schedule for this workshop is shooting sessions in the early morning for sunrise and in the evening for sunset. There are classroom sessions for lecture and/or image critique during the day, as well as a lab for assistance with selection your images and with the use of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. The schedule is flexible and dependent on weather. As the days are long, we plan to have one morning off in the middle of the week, and breaks during the day each day of the workshop.
