Redwoods, Fog and More!

Join Muench Workshops pro Greg Vaughn on this small group photo workshop, as he shows you some of the magnificent old growth redwoods in and along the Redwood Highway. You'll be taken to various groves in the Redwood National and State Parks region including the Del Norte and Jedediah Smith areas. May is the best time of year to capture the fog as it rolls inland and creates mist in the forest. It's also a great time of year to photograph the rhododendron flowers that bloom in and around the trees. Greg will teach you about composition, exposure, and camera technique while exploring and photographing these beautiful groves. Bring your laptop so you can review images and learn valuable skills in post processing your images. We will be staying right on the coast at the Beachfront Lodge in Crescent City with great access to all the locations and our own private meeting room for image reviews. Here you will meet up for a introductory dinner and sunset on the beach.
