Master photographers Darrell Moll and Rod Brown are providing hands-on instruction for a fall workshop in Zion National Park, Oct. 30 through Nov. 3, 2011. There are only 10 to 12 spots available for the workshop, so if you’re interested in taking your outdoor landscape photography to the next level, work on reserving your spot now.
The cost of the workshop is $895, and includes instruction in the field on everything that makes landscape photography pop in one of the most scenic areas of America. Moll and Brown will cover the proper equipment needed and technique, including white balance, RAW versus JPEG, and their thought process on what aperture and shutter speed to use based on what’s before you.
Post capture techniques will be demonstrated as well. While Brown is a Nikon user who prefers Lightroom, Moll is a Canon user who prefers Adobe Camera Raw and Bridge, so everyone should feel comfortable. They are also well versed with many of the plug-ins like those from nik Software.
Brown knows Zion National Park very well, having photographed there many times over the years, but both will scout out the area a few days ahead of the workshop to find the best places to capture based on conditions at the time.
You’ll see firsthand how they work an area, as well as their different perspectives on each scene, and get additional tips and tricks along the way while you shoot with them. While one will be roaming all the time asking if you need a hand or answering questions, the other will be shooting so you can see afterwards what they saw, how they chose to capture it, and how their use of angles, lens selections and filters make such a difference in the results.
There will be various door prizes from the workshop’s sponsors, which include LexJet, Lowepro, NIK, Midwest Photo Exchange, and Singh-Ray Filters.
Both photographers hold Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsmen Degrees from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), are Ohio Certified Professionals and PPA International Jurors. Moll holds an Approved Imaging Instructor Degree from PPA and Brown is one of only 106 American Society Fellows. Both have won Ohio Photographer of the Year more than once and have each been awarded the coveted PPA Diamond Photographer of the Year Award.
