Tucson Trip Report Tom Bol Photo Workshops - April 24-28, 2019

We started our Tucson photo adventure on a sunrise shoot at the scenic San Xavier Mission. Both the architecture and the birdlife provided several hours of captivating subject matter.

Our next stop was the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. We used diffusers to take macro photos of the blooming cactus and worked the hummingbirds in the enclosed aviary.

Throughout the trip every cactus seemed to be in bloom. Our timing was perfect for the desert at its most vibrant.
The bird blinds at the Desert Photo Retreat provided up close access to Tucson desert bird species like this Gilded Flicker by Linda S.

The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular. We arrived early and stayed late to photograph desert plants in full bloom.

Portraits were the focus of our morning at Old Tucson. We used reflectors and window lighting to make these western characters come alive.

The Pima Air and Space Museum was the perfect place to try new techniques.
Some of us knew more about airplanes than others....
.....and the faces and teeth logos provided whimsical photos for all
Our last morning at Gates Pass was the perfect way to capture compressed landscapes in the Sonoran Desert
Thanks to our 2019 Tucson Photographers for a great workshop!
