Join Moose Peterson in the heart of Yosemite National Park! In this class you’ll see Moose’s approach to planning, the gear he uses, the logistics that need to be considered, and his philosophy for making the best of the situation you face when you arrive. As Moose travels through different locations in the park he draws on his extensive Yosemite experience to teach you what to look for when you arrive on scene, and how to notice the small details as much as the breath-taking grandeur of the landscape in front of you. Moose wraps up the class with a look at some of his post processing workflow, as well as his method of reviewing photos with the goal of making the next day of shooting even better than the last.
