Night Arches

no images were found

This is something from last April’s trip to Moab. It was a trip that I am still finding images from — this being one of them.

It was an epic trip to one of the most gorgeous parts of the US that I have had the pleasure to visit. If you are a landscape photographer it has to be on your bucket list. And you want to be prepared wham you go. This is the part where I help you prepare. Well, not me personally, but I can point you in the right direction.

My friend, Justin Balog (who was one of my Moab hosts) and Armando Martinez (who I met while I was there) just launched a new course on Udemy that walks you through three iconic locations in the Moab area. They cover the gear, planning, on-site shooting, and post processing.  I had the pleasure of previewing the course last night and it is really incredible.

If you ever want to go to Moab Justin and Armando provide invaluable tips to shooting Dead Horse Point, Delicate Arch and Mesa Arch. Even if you are not, their lessons on gear, framing and post processing can be applied to any subject. And those are the parts of the course that resonated with me. I am always looking for ways to improve my workflow whether it is in the field or in the digital darkroom and the best way to do that is to look at things through the eyes of other photographers. Justin and Armando each bring their own styles to this course. I learned a lot.

Be sure to  check out their course, Photographing Icons — Moab on Udemy.

Oh — this image. It was shot in Arches National Park near midnight. It was the last shot from a long day that started at Mesa Arch before dawn and peaked with a light painting session at Delicate Arch after sunset.

Epic. Trip.
