There's nothing more spectacular than the desert in bloom during the short season in mid-Spring. This five-day workshop will focus on the macrocosm as well as the larger eco-system of the desert. Highlights will include a visit to one of the few river oases to be found in North America via the Palm Canyon Trail. You'll come away from this workshop with photographic vistas of the desert spring, and spectacular macro photos of desert flowers in bloom, as well as a renewed appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the desert. While it is never possible to be sure in advance when the Anza-Borrego wildflowers will peak since this depends on many variables, the dates of this workshop have been chosen to give us the best possible chance at photographing this glory of nature, as springtime in the Anza-Borrego State Park has aptly been described. Besides botanical subjects, the photographic agenda includes strategies for capturing the stern but beautiful landscape of this unique desert environment, dark-sky night photography, and a number of excursions. We will be based at the comfortable Borrego Springs Spa and Resort, where classroom discussions will cover field macro techniques, digital monochromatic photography, HDR, and individual coaching and critiques. Accommodations at the Borrego Springs Spa and Resort included.
