Samy’s Photo school is proud to partner with National Park Photographic Expeditions to provide our students with exceptional Landscape Master Class Workshops in our nation’s most scenic national parks. Bob Killen and his staff of national park Artist-in-Residence instructors will help you access intuitive, reflective ways of working that will lead you to create great landscape images. These classes provide hands-on, mentored learning in the field and ample classroom time with your instructor to teach you a capture to post-production workflow (end to creative end workflow) using Lightroom and Photoshop
Our National Park Master Class workshops include your lodging, all local travel, instructor tuition, post-production classroom, course materials, post-class online support and meals in the field. All you need to do is arrive with your camera and laptop, and away you go to some of the most incredible photographic sites and professional hands-on training anywhere.
Capitol Reef National Park
Named for what it looks like (white rock domes like the U.S. Capitol, rocky ridges like marine reefs), Capitol Reef National Park is a 100-mile pinch in the earth’s crust in the geographical middle of nowhere, but it’s overloaded with geological, cultural, and photographic opportunities. There’s the Waterpocket Fold, a jagged scar formed from the monocline — the seam left over when shifting plates lifted one side of a fault 7,000 feet; there’s miles of white horizontal rock layers filled with alternating bands of white Navajo Sandstone, red Wingate, shale and pinkish Entrada Sandstone to explore, and grand vistas of the Henry Mountains.
Explore and Photograph: Chimney Rock, Gooseneck, Sulphur Creek, Sunset Point, Panorama Ledge, Grand Wash, The Switch Basics, Temples of the Moon and Sun, Hickman Bridge, Freemont River, and Fruita Orchards.
Learn Tools and Techniques: Pre/post-Focus Point Tutorials, Stack Focus Techniques, Dynamic Capture, Lens choice and its compositional effects, Landscape Gear
Learn the Art of Landscape Photography: Sky and Ground dominant compositions, Grand Scenics, intimate landscapes, canyon detail structures, composition workflow, Expressive-personal project methods, Voice with tone, coloration, framing, and much more.
Learn end-to-end Post-Production Workflow for Landscapes: Develop Baseline images with Lightroom, dynamic blending with Luminosity masks, contrast and color methods, all with personal instruction.
You’ll benefit tremendously from our guidance, advice, lectures, demonstrations, and reviews, as we help take your photography to the next level!
