The extreme environment of Death Valley National Park might make most photographers think there is nothing special to capture in this barren location. Yet Death Valley boasts numerous photogenic locations that emerge in the early and late hours of the day. While most think of well known photo locations with in the park there are numerous areas to explore when the lighting is right. Finding these new photo opportunities is merely a matter of opening ones eyes to see creatively. I’m looking forward to once again returning to Death Valley in just a couple of weeks with a small group of photographers to discuss and explore creative landscape photography in addition to taking full advantage of night photography opportunities under a new moon. If interested in attending there is still limited availability.
Death Valley – Death Valley National Park, California
Friday October 16th – Sunday October 18th, 2009
Early to mid-morning light created an interesting contrast across the desert landscape creating a photogenic interplay of texture and lines. A longer focal length flattened the scene enhancing the abstract quality of the landscape. One of a larger set of abstract photos that I’ll be releasing in the coming week.
