This morning I woke up at 4am to meetup with 18 other photographers. I am attending The Digital Photo Workshops in Moab for the next few days. We will be photographing a number of the best arches in Moab and in between receive training on Lightroom, light painting, and landscape photography.
We were going to head to Mesa Arch but the place was already swarmed with photographers so we went over to Dead Horse Point and created our photographs. I am including a mix of iPhone photos and some other photographs.
Here is my big camera on the tripod. It was doing a long exposure. I took a lot of photographs and I am hoping for at least one keeper. We show up early before the sun rises so we can be in place to get the shot.
I’m sporting a headlamp so I can not fall off a cliff and die. That would be bad. I knew of one ledge that would be perfect for the sunrise. We had about 3 photographers in place for the light.
This was a photograph with my small Canon M. I’ll be editing the big camera’s photos later this week.
As a portrait photographer I love the idea of capturing a person in the scene. This is my friend Brian who is a photographer and he is overlooking Dead Horse Point while he prepares his camera and tripod.
I will admit, I was pretty nervous from the heights. The cliffs are probably 700-1000 feet. But I overcame my fear and was able to get the photographs I wanted. Woo hoo!
After the early morning photo shoot we went over to Jailhouse Cafe for the best breakfast in Moab, Utah. Their Swedish pancakes and bacon are worth the trip.
