Redwoods & Rocky Coastlines Tom Bol Photo Workshops - 2018 Trip Report

Redwoods National Park is our favorite forest in the world. We took 12 photographers with us to explore the area in July. This is when sunlight is most likely to pierce through the fog, creating magical beams of light. Here are a few highlights of our 2018 Redwoods & Rocky Coastlines Photo Workshop....

The weather was perfect for our group.....temperatures in the 60s all day long. We hiked through the forest photographing some of the largest and smallest organisms on earth.

Banana slugs and snails were popular macro subjects

The Coastal Redwoods shoot is a great workshop for both beginners and experienced shooters. I could not think of a better way to spend 5 days than being surrounded by beautiful nature and learning new techniques and/or reinforcing old skills not used every day—exposure bracketing, multiple exposure, macro, reflectors and tilt shift to name a few. To top it all off there was plenty of opportunity to become at least "friendly" with my tripod. Another excellent adventure!
