Given the current NASA budget, we won’t be sending anyone to photograph on the moon anytime soon. However, you can photograph the next best thing if you join me this June for a Photo Safari to the South Dakota Badlands.
We’ll be based out of Wall, SD– about an hour from Rapid City. We’ll be shooting some of the most interesting landscapes in the United States at a time of year when the weather should be pleasant and the possibility of an occasional thunderstorm will make for even more interesting scenery. I’ve reserved a block of rooms at a discounted rate for this trip, and the limit is 10 photographers. We’ll cover all the major field techniques for Digital Landscape Photography, including panoramas, HDR, and Black & White with both Silver Efex Pro and Capture NX 2.
Thursday, June 9th: Check-in and meet for orientation in Wall, SD. Evening shoot in Badlands National Park.
Friday, June 10th: Sunrise and sunset shooting in Badlands National Park. Mid-day sessions on post-processing and workflow.
Saturday, June 11: Sunrise and sunset shooting in Badlands National Park. Mid-day session for image critique.
Sunday, June 12th: Sunrise shooting in Badlands National park (Schedule permitting), followed by departure home via Rapid City.
All of my workshops are organized online at Luminescence of Nature Photography on Meetup.com. Join my group to be notified immediately of new classes. I aim to educate photographers of all levels, from beginners to advanced pros. Join me for a session and take your photography to the next level!
By popular demand, I’ll be offering my “NEF-Centric Workflow” class online 12-3pm Eastern Time on Saturday, Nov. 20th. In this class, you’ll discover how to easily work with NEF files using the powerful image management software, Photo Mechanic.
This class is limited to 15 participants, and you will be able to interact with me directly via my online conferencing system.
Rob says: “What a wealth of information, I’m sure it will take several viewings to absorb it all (and lots of practice). This is a great addition to your Capture e-book, which I’ve used for more than a year.”
From Kibsgaard, in Denmark: “This sharpening technique-video is very well done. Amazing results and a so clear and easy to understand video, also for not english people, like me.”
Phil says: “I just downloaded and watched your new video Sharpening Techniques for Capture NX 2. It is excellent, excellent, excellent!”
Eamon writes: “Thank you for producing the Sharpening instruction video for CNX2. I purchased and downloaded today and found it really clear and easy to follow. Great addition to your CNX2 ebook and other support videos.”
Thanks to all my customers who have purchased my new training video. I appreciate it!
