Photograph the iconic white sand dunes and yuccas of White Sands National Park while learning new photography techniques to create fine-art landscapes. This workshop includes early entry to the National Park so we can be there for twilight/blue hour and get the best possible light. 

Each participant will receive personal attention in the field during the shooting sessions. I will also provide "ask me anything" post-processing lessons and one on one support each day to all attendees. Topics will include the use of Lightroom & Photoshop for color and black and white image processing. We will also have group photo reviews and critique sessions.
