Instructor: David Behar
Between the richly hued red mesas of the Painted Desert on the North end and the stark, otherworldly beauty of the South end badlands, lies an incredible diversity of panoramic views and outcroppings of ancient petrified wood.
We’ll gather first at the Painted Desert Visitor Center on the North end of the park then caravan through the park, letting the light and conditions dictate where our attention is focused in the many interesting locations throughout the park.
This will be an enjoyable morning of light to moderate hiking, exploring interesting areas to photograph and pleasant camaraderie within the echoes of this ancient landscape. We’ll likely end up in the middle of the park around noon and you’ll have the rest of the day to explore the park in either direction until park closing.
Basic camera instruction and shot planning will be provided as needed. This workshop can be enjoyed by novice and advanced users alike.
