Desert Sheep & Bird Photographic Workshop

16-20 Sept ’19 Desert Bighorn Sheep and Birds The Southern California desert just past civilization is a treasure of wild creatures. The canyons and springs bring a photographic challenge and reward for those souls who venture into their midst. The Desert Bighorn is really quite different from the more commonly thought of Rocky Mountain Bighorn in look and habitat. Those we’ll photograph this trip are the Peninsular or Desert Bighorn. Long story but were listed as endangered until politics made them no longer a unique subspecies. They are a spectacular species living in the beautiful San Jacinto Mtns.

What color is snow? Unless a Moose (4 legged) or dog has passed by, it’s white, right? The common belief that if there is snow in the scene, automatically dial in +1 exposure compensation. A recommendation that comes from the meters of the 1960s. We’re not in the ’60s. I honestly don’t think there are viewers of your snow photograph who wouldn’t recognize the white stuff on the ground as snow. With that being true, then seeing detail in every crystal of the snow (what +1 might do for you) is not mission critical to tell the viewer the white stuff they are looking at is indeed, snow. With...
