Sequoia National Park

August 10-13, 2017

Summary: Sequoia National Park is a dramatic landscape of giant Sequoia Trees, rugged foothills, deep canyons, and thundering waterfalls that spill off glacial rock. For the landscape photographer, this is a land of Majestic Scenes that provide a plein air classroom for a visual study of light and shadow among the big trees.

In this First Horizon Class, you will learn specialized exposure concepts that will create photographic art from the lay of giant fuzzy shadows among the halos of twinkling sunlight. Short hikes position our students to explore rushing streams and waterfalls and learn to compose them in splashing detail as well as using smooth motion to reduce them to visual whispers. We will spend time juxtaposing plane and ground across a John Muir Meadow and go eye to eye with a sunrise in the Mineral King Mountains.

Mojave National Preserve

September 14-17, 2017

Summary: Mojave National Preserve, one of the newest National Parks and the third largest in the lower 48, is a land of desert wilderness, abandoned mines, and ghostly homesteads. Out here, rain is an episodic event, but solitude and peace abound every day. Climb aboard our 4-wheel drive vehicles, explore a desert wilderness of roads less traveled, and take advantage of the warm fall light. During your two days in the field, you will be capturing images from spots rarely seen by contemporary man and experience a land that is slowly and inexorably retreating into times past.

First Horizon classes teach you to see and capture landscapes with creative camera composition techniques that will make an immediate difference in your approach, and you will learn to develop a vision beyond documentation.

  • Field Meals
  • Discount Lodging Assistance
