About the Workshop
NE Oregon offer some of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in the Northwest. Amazing granite mountains (nicknamed the Alps of America), the deepest canyon in North America, wildlife (eagles, birds of prey, mountain goats), historic barns galore, ghost towns, abandoned mining towns, scenes vistas, the list goes on and on. A true paradise for photographers.
You will learn to see more creatively through your camera, and how to use the camera as a tool. You will be given opportunities to experiment with composition, how to choose the right lens, and the importance how shutter speed and aperture affects an image and are used for creative effects. Most importantly, you will discover the different properties of natural light and how it affects your photographs.
Due to the remote nature of this workshop, participants should bring water and food.
I have been going to the Wallowas since the mid 1970's and have been leading workshops in the area since 2008. The Wallowas are a unique and beautiful place that I believe everyone should experience at least once in their life.
This workshop will be partnered with Northwest Aperture.
