Presented by Doug Johnson
Where We Go: Being in Yellowstone National Park in the fall makes you think someone adjusted nature’s saturation levels to perfection. The cottonwood and aspen trees create a pallet so vivid you have to pinch yourself to know you aren’t dreaming. The yellows, reds and greens that blanket the landscape seem painted on. The blues in the sky invite you to swim in them. The air is so fresh and crisp you savor every breath and smell. During this week with Doug Johnson, let your senses come to life while experiencing some of Yellowstone’s greatest hits: Lamar, Swan and Hayden valleys, Mammoth Terraces, Norris Geyser Basin, West Thumb Geyser Basin and the Great Fountain Geyser. With scenery so stunning, you might even have to pinch yourself a few times throughout the week! And to top it all off, around every corner exists the possibility of seeing elk, bears, moose, and tons of other creatures that will keep you on your toes … and your finger on the shutter button.
What you learn: As if the scenery weren’t enough, the quality of photographic education you receive while on the workshop will catapult your confidence and abilities to the next level. During this photo-op-of-a-lifetime, Doug teaches you:
Methods for photographing wildlife successfully
A variety of methods for improving your landscape composition
How to create HDR and panoramic images by developing a seamless workflow
Techniques for night photography
Zone System of exposure for digital cameras.
At the end of this bucket-list experience, you emerge as a more knowledgeable and capable photographer. The skills you gain with Doug will stick with you for a long time and ensure you are able to create technically strong images of every adventure to follow.
