by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Good friend Ron Risman is launching a new timelapse and photography workshop that you'll be interested in! I know I am (but with 2 kids in college sadly I'll have to pass this time).

Ron has had rave reviews for his earlier timelapse workshops and I'm sure this will be no different. And the time of year is perfect.

Exclusive 5-Day Timelapse & Photography Adventure Workshop on Lake Powell

Page, Arizona – Join Ron Risman and Timelapse Workshops for a time-lapse and photography adventure workshop on Lake Powell taking place September 10-15, 2017. The workshop is open to photographers of all skill levels, and includes daily in-field instruction and endless photo opportunities while we capture the majestic light and color of Lake Powell and the slot canyons that are only accessible by water.

The ultimate adventure
As an adventure workshop, participants will be spending five days and four nights in the great outdoors while exploring the breathtaking slot canyons of Northern Arizona and Southern Utah. We’ll travel by boat to various locations, and will capture the awe-inspiring scenery that await as we hike on slick rock, and kayak into slot canyons that are unreachable by other means of transportation.

The workshop was planned for September, as this the best time to be on the water. Water temperatures are a warm 76 degrees, while day time air temperatures range from a comfortably dry 85 degrees during the day to 62 degrees at night (great for sleeping).

Timelapse & Photography
The best education is when you can quickly apply what you’re learning, and throughout this workshop you’ll have the chance to immediately put new skills and techniques into practice. During the workshop you will:

• Learn to capture professional quality time-lapse
• Learn to capture the night sky – in motion
• Learn to capture day-to-night timelapse sequences (“holy grail”)
• Learn to use depth-of-field to control the viewers eye
• Learn how and when to use ND and Grad ND filters
• Learn how and when to bracket images to create realistic dynamic range
• Learn to compose and focus in the dark
• and much more

Night Sky Conditions

Timelapse Lake Powell takes place during the week leading up to the new moon. These dates were chosen in order to give us a few hours of dark skies each night before a late rising moon helps to illuminate the canyon with just enough light to illuminate our red rock canyon foregrounds while the dark skies above allow us to capture millions of stars as well as the core of the Milky Way.

Hidden Canyon Kayak
Timelapse Workshops has teamed up with Hidden Canyon Kayak for this incredible 5-Day Lake Powell adventure workshop. Hidden Canyon Kayak will provide everything we need for camping (tents, cots, sleeping pads, sleeping bags), boating (kayaks, paddles, life preservers, dry bags, and their custom-built, 34ft, coast guard inspected water taxi ) to gourmet meals. An on-board generator and external battery will allow us to keep our camera batteries charged and ready to go.
