Hi Folks, The weather forecast for the weekend photo excursion to Bluff, Utah looks great, a mix of sun and clouds.
I’ve added three more locations to the photography lessons.
Moqui Dugway is an awesome drive up from the Valley of the Gods to Cedar Mesa. With big views of the San Juan River Canyon and Monument Valley too
We will head out to Muley Point by driving up the Moqui Dugway on Saturday afternoon, the weather forecast is for clouds! Yeah, No sky, no sky. But with SKY< add sky. I’ll be teaching the following hints for grand landscape:
- Pay attention to your grand composition, watch for centering your “horizon line”
- Create drama in the big scene by focusing on near, middle and far in the frame.
- Actual focus point is important, choose a deep depth of field (f16-22) and focus about 1/3 of the way into your composition.
- Use a graduated ND filter or underexpose the lower part of the frame to hold detail in clouds.
