Join Fine Art Photographer and Outdoor Photographer Magazine contributor, Cheyenne L Rouse at stunning White Sands National Monument in S New Mexico for this special Full Moon Photo Workshop in August 2013. Come join us for the FULL MOON, lots of FUN & FROLIC and most of all, GREAT PHOTOS, at this amazing scenic splendor that is White Sands National Monument. Glistening milky white dunes made from gypsum - the ancient Tularosa Valley is a dramatic place to spend a few days in the Zen silence of White Sands with your camera.
The workshop starts with a meet and greet in the afternoon of Wednesday, August 20th, 2013 then we will make our way out into the sea of white dunes to our sunset/full moon rise location to shoot the magic as it occurs. The following morning we will meet early and head back into the dunes to shoot not only the sunrise but the moon set then again in the afternoon for the “official” full moon rise and sunset. The night BEFORE the “official” full moon (Aug 20th) is the best time to shoot since the sun sets and moon rises simultaneously making for MAGICAL photos and you will find that White Sands is nothing short of MAGICAL! I will make sure that you maximize your photographic opportunities in the field, my number one priority will be to assist and guide you to the perfect locations at the perfect times and to help you produce the finest images possible. I will be using my own camera in the field for instructional purposes and to lead by example.
If you are ready to take your digital photos to the next level, I am offering this workshop with the option of adding my “Turn your Photos into Fine Art” Photomatix HDR Class to it – this class is approximately 1 1/2 hours and will be held in the afternoon break. For more information on this class please visit our HDR Class page.
To see how magical White Sands is watch my YouTube series; “Cheyenne’s VERY Cool Life” shot last August at White Sands.
