Discover the ancient cities along the Adriatic Coast on a 8-day cruise aboard a chartered yacht. Unlike traditional cruises, we’ll be aboard a 30-passenger yacht and spending nights in ports of call. That means we’ll be able to explore each city on our itinerary during the peak times for photography, including sunset and twilight. Along the way, you’ll get expert photographic instruction, learn mobile workflow, and discover creative approaches to travel photography with professional photographer Jason P. Odell.
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.
