About the Event

South Dakota Badlands

Join Jason Odell to explore fine-art landscape photography techniques in an environment that can only be described as surreal. You will explore light, texture and clouds over the tremendous rock formations that have formed from erosion over the last 500,000 years. 

Badlands Photo Gallery

When: August 26-30, 2020
Where: South Dakota Badlands (Wall, SD)

This workshop is the perfect setting for photographers who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, monochrome, and long exposures.

Each day, we will have the opportunity download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products. Our focus will be on the complete end to-end workflow of landscape photography, from composition to final digital or print output.
