Yosemite and Mono Lake - Photo Tour and Workshop

Yosemite National Park is one of America’s most iconic landscapes offering some of the world’s most spectacular landscape photo opportunities.  The valley is surrounded by high granite mountain walls carved by glaciers creating beautiful shapes.  The waterfalls are spectacular as are the lakes and streams in the park.
Mono Lake is unlike any other landscape in the world. Its beautiful tufas, alkaline water, desert-like  vistas make it a remarkable place for photography.  Sometimes it seems that you are on another planet or may be on a lunar surface.  The late summer weather generally provides some interesting cloud formations.
The first workshop dates are September 9th through 15th, 2012 and the second workshop will be held September 23rd through the 29th, 2012.

The workshops dates are designed to allow photographers attending the PSA Conference in 2012 to participate either before or after the conference.

Introduction to Rainforest Photography – Costa Rica with Dennis Goulet and Greg Basco

Unlike a typical photography tour, this workshop is designed for those with a desire to learn to use their equipment in new and exciting ways to capture the essence of the rainforest. Through a mix of formal instruction tailored to your needs, and hands-on learning in the field, you'll master basic techniques such as exposure, metering, depth of field, and focusing and move to more advanced strategies such as use of flash, creative lighting, slow shutter speeds, and selective focus. You'll return home with a colorful portfolio of tropical nature images and an expanded photographic toolbox so you can create dynamic images at home and in your future travels. Group size -- min. 5, max. 10
