We started our workshop with a bang - our first morning shoot was at Pinnacles Overlook with an entourage of big horn ewes.
Sue could not decide which big lens to use, so she brought them all!
The yellow mounds area was a favorite with our group. The colors were highly saturated with stormy skies.
Big Badlands Overlook provided great views and light for both sunrise and sunset shoots.
In the late afternoon, some people used lightning triggers to capture bolts from the storms rolling through the park. Teri used the "old school" method to capture the image to the right!
A mid morning shoot on the Castle Valley Trail let everyone spread out and get creative with their photography.....plenty of smiles to go around.
Polarizers worked well in the midday sun to bring out dramatic scenes in the south part of the park.
We photographed prairie animals and birds throughout the park. The prairie dogs on Sage Creek Road were a favorite.
After weeks of rain, the wildflowers were popping up all over the park. We used diffusers, macro lenses as well as natural light to capture wildflowers in the park.
Textures in the paleo-soils made perfect foregrounds for landscapes at Big Foot Basin
The ghost town of Cottonwood was great for using prairie grass in the foreground. Everyone developed their own unique style of shooting through the grass. Here are some examples below:
For our final morning we went up in an R44 helicopter for aerials over the park.....this gave us a whole new perspective of Badlands National Park
