Moab Adventures with Clifford Pickett
May 6-11, 2019
I would like to introduce Clifford Pickett to our roster of amazing guest workshop leaders. He is an accomplished travel photographer who has led workshops for Apple, B&H, and Adorama.
We are planning a 5-day Moab Adventure through Canyonlands, Arches, and Dead Horse Point.
We will be exploring this amazing colorful landscape with its countless canyons, mesas, and arches. We will be chasing the best light from sunrise to sunset. You will learn:
A solid foundation of camera technique
How to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop
2 Professional landscape photographers guidance and location expertise
In the field instruction on mastering photography skills
Classroom session including Lightroom and Photoshop techniques, and critiques
12x18 matted prints of work photographed during workshop
What's not included:
Hotel accommodation - ( A code will be given upon signing for the recommended hotel)
What should I expect?
Our days will consist of sunrise hikes to the arches to photographing the Milky Way rising over canyons. This photography workshop adventure is designed to give all participants the opportunity to shoot and capture some of the most amazing landscapes and places in the country. We will guide you through different photography techniques, camera settings and how to use filters to properly expose your shots. We will also spend a good amount of time on photo composition and developing your own style so your photos will tell your story to the viewer.
Group size will be kept small (approx. 12 participants) to afford each participant one-on-one instruction both in the field and in the classroom for post editing.
What should I bring?
Upon signing up we will send everyone a detailed equipment and material list. The basic gear everyone should have is a digital SLR camera body, tripod and a variety of lens. Laptops are recommend to help you fully learn to edit on your own system.
We will be outside doing some walking/hiking for a good part of the trip. It is advised for you to dress in layers and with proper footwear. Temperatures and conditions can change rapidly so it is best to be prepared.
