I just got back from teaching “The Digital Photo Workshops” in Yosemite National Park with some great people. We were out there with Dave Black and did some light painting that was just incredible and I also had the chance to light painting on my own. Yosemite is one of my favorite places the photograph and I wasn’t disappointed with the images I came away with. We had 17 students at this workshop and I was very impressed with the work that they were doing. In this workshop we talked a lot about HDR photography and using graduate neutral density filters in order to capture the images in the park. This is because the Valley is very narrow at this time and you have a lot of shadows to deal with along with a bright blue sky.
Here are a few images from that workshop.
