Badlands Workshop Update

Updated info on Jason’s Landscape Photography Workshop August 27-30, 2020

Here’s the latest information on my August workshop in the Badlands of South Dakota

When: August 26-30, 2020

The South Dakota Badlands is the perfect setting for photographers who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, monochrome, and long exposures.

Each day, we will have the opportunity download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products. Our focus will be on the complete end to-end workflow of landscape photography, from composition to final digital or print output.
