Truly a photographer’s playground, the sublime, dramatic and moody Pacific Coast around Bandon, Oregon will be our outdoor classroom for this landscape and seascape oriented photo workshop. This workshop is part of our Vision workshop series, a special program of advanced instruction focusing on refining your personal creative vision, composition and digital workflow, designed and presented by renowned photographers Jack Dykinga and John Shaw with support from Visionary Wild’s Justin Black.
Ever-changing light and the beautiful interplay of sun, waves, towering sea stacks, tide pools, wind-sculpted clouds and marine fog mean that every day offers a different mood, even when we revisit our primary location, the sprawling Bandon Beach. Jack, John and Justin will teach you to take control of the finer points of composition, exposure and tonal control as well as specialized techniques for capturing this amazing coastal landscape.
We will spend our morning and evening field time among locations along the coast as far north as the harbor of Charleston and as far south as Cape Bonito lighthouse.
This workshop deals heavily with composition, working with changing light, exposure control, using long shutter speeds and multiple exposures to create mood, essential gear and creative tools, fundamentals of digital workflow, digital exposure blending and panoramic stitching, and lots of photography in the field followed by constructive group critiques.
The workshop package includes:
• eight field sessions
• classroom lectures
• ample hands-on instruction
• image review and critiques
• four nights’ lodging (pro-rated no lodging rate available)
• all meals from dinner on June 1 to lunch on June 5
