Olympic National Park is a temperate rainforest national park, one that receives 14 feet of rain each year, and the wet forests are home to elk who pasture along salmon-filled rivers. There are 73 miles of rugged and wild wilderness coasts with mysterious sea stacks standing guard along the pristine coast while mountains loom in the distance. In the Master Class Photography Workshop you will photograph pristine coastlines with sea stacks, pebble beaches, and tide pools, then work the deep shade and dark greens of old-growth rain forests, waterfalls, and glacier lakes. In the ‘Olympic,’ the light and weather patterns shift quickly, and your visual studies will emphasize atmospherics, combining light patterns, and creative bracketing to compensate for a broad dynamic range. The class will explore and photograph remote and stunning locations during the golden hours, and at other times, polarizing and neutral density filters can make a creative difference.
The Olympic National Park Master Class Photography Workshop is a 5-day full immersion program June 7-12, 2021 that teaches a capture to post-production workflow to create fine art landscape photography. We are not a photography tour provider; we are a visual arts, photography education program. Thus, you will spend significant time at each location with your instructor to develop a deep understanding of your subject and theme and learn to complete your vision in post-production.
