Photographing Montana Big Skies
with Moose Peterson
Head out to big sky country in the Terry Badlands of Montana, and join Moose Peterson for an adventure of learning and photography. Inspired by the photography of Evelyn Cameron (1868 – 1928), Moose sets out on a journey to capture the old west she saw in the early 1900’s. In this class Moose shares his process for planning an overland photography expedition, his considerations for gear to bring, how to capture those big skies, what to do when arriving on location, considerations for shooting with B&W in mind, his post processing workflow after the shoot is complete, and so much more.
