Death Valley Spring Edition Workshop 2019 with Erin Babnik and Nick Page
March 21 - March 27$2350
with co-leaders Erin Babnik and Nick Page
Join Erin Babnik and co-leader Nick Page for seven days of photography, education, inspiration and adventure set within the diverse scenery of Death Valley National Park. This special Spring edition of Erin’s popular Death Valley series will cover an unusually broad range of locations, including remote areas in higher elevations on both ends of the national park. The warmer Spring weather will make these higher elevations more comfortable to visit in addition to bringing a very high potential for early Spring storms that provide especially photogenic conditions. We will also have a chance to photograph wildflowers at the higher elevations during this time of year.
This workshop is intended for photographers with a spirit of adventure who would like to further their potential by learning more about the creative concerns and techniques of fine-art landscape photography. Participants will leave this workshop with a great understanding of composition, aesthetics, color theory, creativity, and visual storytelling. In addition, you will receive technical training in a wide variety of in-field and post-processing techniques.
Our locations will include spectacular areas in Death Valley National Park, one of the largest and most photogenic parks in the United States. We will have opportunities to visit badlands, diverse desert playas, dune fields, ancient canyons, salt flats, Joshua Tree groves, mountain overlooks, and geologically unique basins. The precise locations of most outings will be determined according to seasonal developments and weather conditions in order to maximize the photographic potential of each day.
The workshop will culminate in a substantial post-processing instruction session in the comfort of a hotel conference room. During the processing program, we will present techniques that focus on both the art and the craft of producing compelling landscape photographs that will result in fine-art prints or online content.
No level of experience is necessary for participants of this workshop. Whether you are just beginning or are a seasoned pro, we are happy to help you move forward with your photography.
