We will be shooting a variety of landscapes at many state parks from Sunset Bay State Park to the Samuel Boardman State Scenic Corridor, but the focus will be to catch big waves during the day at the noon time high tide. This workshop has also been timed to coincidence with low tide at sunrise and sunset, and the full moon setting in the west over the Pacific Ocean in the early morning. We will be sure to get out ahead of sunrise to take advantage of the infrared light, stars, and full moon.
The air temperatures range from a low of 40 degrees to a high of 55 degrees. No snow or ice at the coast as the climate is very temperate. The weather can change by the minute at this time of year – from sunshine, to rain showers, to sleet, and back to sun in a matter of fifteen minutes.
From using the right gear to capture and processing, this is a unique opportunity to learn how to create amazing black-and-white images.
