When you shoot landscapes, keep in mind that sometimes the best light happens after the sun has already set. This image was captured about 2 minutes after sunset in Badlands National Park during my photo safari with Deborah Sandidge. High winds made a tripod mandatory, and I used mirror lock-up to prevent softness from mirror-slap. Although the original file wasn’t quite as spectacular, a quick trip to Color Efex Pro 4 brought this image to life.

Breaking: One Space Now Open for South Dakota

 

Odell_20051013_7877

Due to a late cancellation, I’ve got an opening for my photo safari to South Dakota June 2-6th. I will be joined by Deborah Sandidge as a co-instructor for this immersive landscape photography experience in some pretty amazing environments.

In addition to photographing some amazing locations, we’ll also have classroom time, where Deborah and I will teach you the art of creative post-processing. We’ll cover black and white, HDR, and infrared photography. Speaking of IR photography, we’ll be bringing a few extra IR-converted cameras for you to use on the workshop!

If you’d like to join us, please visit the Luminescence of Nature Photography Meetup page.
