Boulders the size of buildings lie scattered across the hills creating a highly textured foreground of smooth and rounded shapes with a dramatic view of the rising Sierra peaks above. Photographers will quickly see the possibilities. This workshop will be very informal and fun. You will get plenty of opportunities to take a variety of photographs. We will have discussions about techniques and creativity each day. This trip is about shooting — lots of shooting.

OREGON'S PAINTED HILLS AND THE COLUMBIA GORGE

We will see and photograph the beautiful Palouse-like rolling wheat fields of north central Oregon, rows of orchards and alpine views of Hood River, waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The Painted Hills in north central Oregon are one of least known but one of the most outstanding places to take photographs in the United States.

NEW! THE NORTH RIM GRAND CANYON - THE COLOR OF LIGHT
October 10-13, 2013
The North Rim offers a peaceful and absorbing Grand Canyon experience. It is more remote and less developed than the South Rim, and it attracts only 10% of the tourists. Many people think its viewpoints are the most spectacular. It has more eroded and sloping walls give a magnificent views of the river below. There will be daily discussions about pre-visualization, seeing color, composition, exposure and night photography techniques. Some of the places we will photograph include Cape Royal and the golden aspen forests of autumn. This is a place to enjoy nature on a grand scale.
