The Olympic Peninsula takes all of the best natural features the Pacific Northwest offers – snow covered mountains, lush rainforests, rugged coastlines and beautiful waterfalls – and concentrates them into one region. This workshop is designed to optimize the photography opportunities in this special corner of Washington. We will be staying at the best accommodation, closest to each shooting location – limestone sea stacks at Rialto Beach, the verdant greenery of the Hoh Rainforest and the colorful wildflowers along Hurricane Ridge.
Plan on bringing a wide variety of lenses to capture the rich array of subjects, from intimate details of the rainforest to vast mountain vistas. You will also want to bring neutral density filters, as we will be creating evocative long exposures, both in low light and in the middle of the day. We have planned this workshop to coincide with wildflower season in the alpine regions and the best time of year for clear, coastal sunsets. Regardless of the weather, though, there is always something to photograph! We will be working by day and into the night.
Muench Workshops pros Greg Vaughn and Tom Kirkendall will be leading this workshop. They will share with you their unique vision and techniques, helping you optimize your compositions and process your images. There will also be ample time for one-on-one image reviews and group critiques.
