Two New One Day Workshops with Mike Osborne
The River Nobody Knows
November 21, 2009- How many times have you driven to Yosemite on Highway 140 and given only a passing glance to the 15 miles of the Wild & Scenic Merced River below the park boundary? The River Nobody Knows workshop offers you the opportunity to correct that oversight and photograph this unique and beautiful area.
The Mirror Image
November 10, 2009 The Mirror Image will focus on photographing the Merced River, the heart and soul of Yosemite Valley. Water is perhaps the most colorful and dynamic of all photographic subjects, nowhere is it more spectacular than when reflecting the autumn splendor of Yosemite Valley. Participants will explore the creative choices involved in making water and reflection photographs.
