Olympic National Park
June 20-25, 2017
Summary: Olympic National Park sports and an unmatched level of environmental diversity, beauty, and wilderness, which provides an extraordinary range of photographic exploration.
This is a temperate rainforest national park, one that receives 14 feet of rain each year, and the wet forests are home to elk who pasture along salmon-filled rivers. There are 73 miles of rugged and wild wilderness coasts with ancient sea stacks standing guard along the pristine coast while mountains loom in the distance.
In this Landscape Master Class Photography Workshop, you will learn specialized techniques for capturing pristine coastlines with sea stacks, pebble beaches, and tide pools, then work the deep shade and dark greens of old-growth rain forests, waterfalls, and glacier lakes. We will spend time developing shadow plays across the alpine meadows, encounter snow on the back-country roads and trails and employ stack focus techniques to frame the mountainous backdrops as tack sharp. In the Olympic, the light and weather patterns shift quickly, and our visual studies will emphasize atmospherics, combining light patterns, and creative bracketing to compensate for a broad dynamic range.
