Palouse Workshop Recap

August 15, 2017  •  Leave a Comment


The Palouse region of Washington offers a wide range of photographic opportunities.  From colorful barns, rolling wheat fields and crumbling structures to the patterns and textures created from the harvest, the Palouse offers a little something for everyone.  During the summer harvest, farm equipment leave wonderful patterns in the fields while kicking up dust adding more drama to an already beautiful scene.

This year smoke from wildfires to the North produced a haze adding an extra challenge while photographing.  However, one of the benefits of the smoke were dramatic red sunrises and sunsets. 


Smoke from wild fires provided some brilliant red sunsets and sunrises

The lines, patterns and textures in the landscape provided and excellent opportunity for B&W images.

On this workshop we had the wonderful pleasure of meeting a family that was harvesting their fields.  They quickly embraced our group and invited us to come photograph the harvest.  It was an opportunity that I will always remember.
