There are people who say that the desert is empty, that it’s bare, that it’s waste land that there’s nothing there. Honestly I just don’t understand that perspective at all. There’s life in the desert that doesn’t exist anywhere else. Colors of light, purity of light because of the dry air, contrast and texture that you just don’t see in other places. For a photographer that’s something you can explore endlessly.
In this course you will go into a journey with Ben Long as he attempts to make the best of desert areas.
He will take a road trip into the desert with the purpose of Travel Photography. A 3 days road trip in witch he does nothing but shoot.
When people hear about desert, they think of nothing but clouds of dust rising from the dunes that goes all the way into the horizon. So that’s one kind of desert but doesn’t really means that’s all there is about it.
There’s just not a lot of water in the desert and there a lot of different places that fit that description.
He’s going to the lowest places in the desert. On the way you are going to see him trying compositions on these incredible vast landscapes.
He explains how to make the best use of the light. By the end of day he covers ares of thousands of miles of the “Death Valley”.
He’s going to show you what kind of camera and gear he uses.
I hope that this course will help you see the photographic potential of great outdoors as well as give you interesting insights of places that a lot of people describe as rather empty – which Ben see’s as overflowing.
