During the month of April the surrounding farmland transforms itself into array of different colors. The surrounding fields were first planted by Dutch Immigrants in the early 20th century. These Dutch Immigrants brought with them the knowledge of growing fields of tulips and saw that the Skagit Valley had the perfect climate to grow tulips. Acres and acres of fields are planted in late fall in a variety of different tulip species which come to life in late March into early April. The Skagit Valley during the month of April is rich in photographic potential. Not only will be shooting different tulip fields at sunrise and sunset but we will be photographing the renowned RoozenGaarde display garden. During this workshop, you will learn a variety of techniques—both in the field and in the classroom—that will allow you to advance both your technical skills and artistic vision. We will focus on a number of professional field techniques to help you create dramatic and powerful landscape images, such as 1) Working with dramatic light, including sunrise and sunset; 2) The fundamentals of powerful compositions; and 3) Abstract techniques for creating artistic photographs.
