4:00pm: Meet us for our sunset shoot at Tunnel View as you are coming into the park.
7:30pm: Meet us in the Mountain Room at the Lodge at the Falls for Orientation.
Orientation will include a general overview of our Yosemite photography workshop before starting out on our adventure. This orientation gives you a chance to set goals on how to specifically improve your photographic skills and get the best results in the next few days. What do you want to focus on for the workshop? Do you want to focus on telling the story of the trip? Are you interested in shooting black and white? What about learning to work with shadows or master HDR? How about spending some time focusing on Macro Photography?
We will help you to decide where you want to go with your creativity during this Yosemite photography workshop.

We will meet at 7:30 A.M. for a sunrise shoot and will proceed to walk the meadow trials, seeking out the early morning light and reflections of the trees, cottonwoods and ferns, and vistas of distant Yosemite Falls and Half Dome. We’ll seek out the early morning light as it resonates off the meadows. We will break late morning and rest up for our afternoon photo shoot. In the afternoon, we will meet once again and caravan to our sunset location. We will meet afterward in the Mountain Room to discuss the day’s shooting and review images.

This is our last morning exploring the incredible vistas during our Yosemite Photography Workshop. Most noteworthy, we’ll explore some of Yosemite’s most prominent granite peaks as the sun casts its morning glow. Then, we will finally venture out into the surrounding meadows. This area of the valley remains in the shadows most of the day. It is great for both landscape photography and macro compositions. After that, we will walk down the river trail to shoot water compositions along the way. We will wrap things up late morning.
