Our itinerary will be based around the weather and lighting, taking advantage of as many shooting opportunities as possible. We will shoot every sunrise and sunset during the workshop. If we have adequate skies and lighting, we’ll will shoot throughout the day. If we have clear skies and harsh lighting, we will work on post processing and take advantage of the clear skies at night to do astro photography. We will maximize our time with whatever the conditions dictate, so the schedule will be very fluid. A positive attitude and a willingness to be flexible is greatly appreciated!
