I’m at Bryce Canyon, Utah, on a workshop with my friend and mentor, Bob Evans. The workshop goes until Sunday, and we’re about to leave for our morning shoot on Day 2. For me, this is mostly an exercise in refreshing my eye, which has been a little muddled lately from shooting the same things, and also from working full time at my social media consulting practice, which hasn’t left me much time for photography.
Day 1 began in the dark in 32-degree (F) weather at a sunrise shoot at Amphitheater. It was truly one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever seen, and was a good education in the complexities of light as it moves through such exquisite colors and textures. It was as if the rocks had an inner glow as the sun illuminating them.
