    Re: The Road to Moab

    Hi everyone we are in Monument Valley heading home BUT i thought I would post some of the keepers from everyone there. No names and they will be posting threads in other forums but this is pretty darn cool. Time to go get a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage and sit back and enjoy the show.

    Re: The Road to Moab

    31-35 This is the last grouping and when everyone gets home and has a chance to process more we will see them posted in all the forums. Still to come is Monument Valley. Please go ahead and make comments and such. I will say Jack and I are very impressed how well everyone did and there are some killer images here. Huge round of applause to our workshop members on this trip. Also special thanks to Doug Peterson from Capture Integration for the C1 lessons and all the Phase , Cambo demo gear. Also special thanks to Leica for sending me a nice demo kit to share. And let's not forget Mike Hatam for the Lightroom training. Looking forward to getting home to watch the Arizona Cardinals in the Super Bowl and also see my lovely family. Lizards, Dogs, Kids and wife.

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Bravo All!!!

    Bob - nice shot of the river, I was thinking about that area this morning.

    Mike - the Turret Arch composition is great, nice to see it from this perspective as well.

    #6 of Balanced Rock is fantastic and I like the feel of #30.

    Congratulations to all the participants and to Guy and Jack as well.

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Thanks for loading those up Guy --- lots of great images made for sure!

    As Guy said, we're in Monument Valley now, and I just finished a 30 minute exposure with the Phase. The shadows are made by the less than quarter moon, and it and the starlight are the only light for the landscape itself. 30 minutes f5.6, ISO 100:



    Cheers,
    Jack

    Jack,
    That looks awesome and now I am really jealous. I've never been to Monument Valley and that is the part of the trip I most wanted to do!

    Just curious on a long exposure like that does the Phase do a dark frame subtraction? Is it for the full 30 minutes?

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Yes 30 minutes for the exposure and thirty minutes for the dark frame. Took me 2 hours to shoot the next shot. Killing me . LOL

    But it is the only MF back that can go one full hour. Pretty amazing

    Thanks Terry, and you would have loved this trip! FWIW, we are talking about doing a similar trip next year, but eliminating Sedona, keeping stops in Canyon De Chelley and Monument Valley, but then substituting the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and adding a day shoot at Upper Antelope slot canyon instead of Moab.

    Anyway, yes the P45+ does a black frame, so the 30 minute exposure takes a full hour to complete; a one hour exposure takes two hours to complete.

    Cheers,
    Jack

    OK we have a whole year to fix the banks, the markets and the world and then maybe I will be able to take a week off! That itinerary sounds awesome.

    Thanks Don the jpeg does it no justice but it is pretty amazing with detail.

    Here is my hour long exposure and I have some bleed coming through. Not sure what it is but my room lights were slightly on. I thought a hour long exposure would just kill the batteries on the back but not the case at all

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Wow you should see the sunrise here in Monument Valley. Jack just knocked on my door and he was ready to go shoot. I stayed behind and will shoot from the balcony but he should return with some killer shots. Even from the balcony it is amazing. I do have another star trails shot. I was up almost all night playing around with that.

    Aside from the photography and the great company, the two things I regret most about not making the trip this year were missing out on the green chili and the possibility of a repeat of Mike Hatam's splendid performance at the all-you-can-eat king crab special, if indeed, that restaurant didn't fold after our group devoured their holdings that weekend.

    At the airport waiting for my plane and processed a few more quickly to share. First is the view from my balcony about 30 minutes after the sun set last night:



    Next is one from the observation deck of the hotel just before sunrise this morning:

    I know that many people think Alaska is close to heaven for natural beauty, but to my eyes, seeing these photos from the Moab workshop (and having been there 20+ years ago)....I have got to get back to there for a photo outing.

    Great photos everyone.....I wish I had been there too.

    Hi Terry:

    It's about 5 hours of easy driving with a few short stops

    Re: The Road to Moab

    Indeed! Most of you do not realize how hard Guy and I work on these workshops. We usually start the day an hour before sunrise with a drive to our AM shooting location, then back to town for a quick breakfast, then to our rooms for about an hour of break, then to our classroom to prepare for the day's lesson, then as soon as the lesson is over we usually head out for our evening shoot, which then usually wraps up about a half hour after sunset. Then we drive back to town for a group dinner where we all get to unwind a bit, then to bed at around 10 PM if we're lucky and if we can sleep. Then back up an hour before we need to leave for the next sunrise to start it all over again... Truth is, we get beat up after about 4 days of that routine, but we love it!

    PS: And a little secret -- our workshop participants are simply the greatest folks to hang with anyway, which makes the hard work all the more rewarding for us!

    Cheers,
    Jack

    That reminds me I need my nap. LOL

    I slept from 8 last night when I got home to 5 am and still not enough. But i would hit the road again in a minute if there was another workshop tomorrow. I absolutely love doing them.

    Maybe next time, we should, mid afternoon, have cookies and milk, then lay our heads down on the table for half an hour.

    But instead of milk and cookies we might do bar mix and adult beverages
