Join Canon Explorer of Light Jennifer Wu in Yosemite National Park for three days of photographing fall colors and breathtaking scenery with evening introduction the night before the workshop begins. Whether your interest lies in the grand landscapes of Yosemite Valley, intimate details, spectacular waterfalls or the majesty of El Capitan, Yosemite offers a wide range of image-making possibilities. Jennifer will take you to her favorite spots, based on the weather and peak colors, to create magnificent images.
Each day will feature photography sessions during the ideal light of sunrise and sunset. During these sessions, Jennifer will do a quick field demonstration on photography. During the day, you will learn composition for landscape photography, how to create depth in your images and using hyper-focal distance for maximum depth of field and an introduction to shooting the stars. Jennifer will provide critiques of your images to balance out the incredible weekend.
Canon technical representatives will be there to help you with equipment and composition both in the field and in the classroom. There will be some light hiking on unleveled ground for up to three miles, round trip. This will be an intense three days and there will not be time for much more than photography. We will carpool to shooting locations and eat meals as a group. It is a great time to ask questions and continue our photography discussions.
