This tour was scheduled during the New Moon phase to provide the opportunity of learning night photography techniques. Teri Lou will be joined by Francisco Aquilaro who will be instructing two nights of light painting, star trails and how to best capture the Milky Way.
Join us for 5 days of touring, you fall more in love with the region as we round each bend.
The May tour never disappoints, providing endless opportunities to capture so many shades of green among the rolling hills. The vast landscape is dotted with family farms, some abandoned years ago. Together we will follow the perfect routes to capture red and weathered barns in the best light. Throughout the day as the light changes we will find treasured rusty trucks and majestic lone trees. The day will end capturing the shadows as they dance across the uninterrupted landscape.
What to Expect - Typical Tour:
The first day starts at 2:00pm with an introductions and the presentation "My Heart Sings in the Palouse" highlighting the region's amazing photographic opportunities that lie ahead.That evening we continue to get acquainted during a group dinner at a local restaurant, wrapping up the day shooting sunset at a favorite location.
For the next three days we will start early in the morning sometimes before sunrise to capture the golden dawn and end after capturing a spectacular sunset. Since many days start at 4:30am and end at 9:30pm there is an afternoon break for naps, meals, processing and a photo sharing presentation.During one or more afternoons an optional iPhone/iPad course: Tricks to Professional iPhone Captures and Creatively Editing with the iPad will be offered by Teri Lou.
On the last day we arise early to capture a local favorite sunrise location and then sneak in a couple more barns and fields before returning at the hotel about 9am giving plenty of time for breakfast, packing and goodbyes.
"Teri Lou did a stellar job of juggling everyone's wishes and expectations with the practical logistics of guiding a diverse group around a vast area for the 4 day workshop. She's so cheerful and obliging and really knows her stuff. If you really want to squeeze the max out of the hours you have and be at the right place for the time of day and weather conditions (as far as humanly possible), Teri is definitely your "go-to girl". I had a blast. ” ~Vanessa
