This is the second photo workshop group. I suppose the warm jackets, rain shells and umbrellas give you some insight on our weather. In a word, it was terrible! Lots of dark gray weather in which we never saw the sun. Sunday was even worse, it rained non-stop from sunrise to the end of the tour – that hardly ever happens out here in the desert!
This weather could have been a disaster, but fortunately, I was accompanied by a wonderful group of passionate photographers who never let the weather effect them. I never heard a single complaint! They got wet, dirty and muddy but everyone just kept going – they were awesome! We spent some time inside working with Photoshop, but spent most of the time outside as we talked and worked on compositions, exposure and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Dealing with weather is just part of being an outdoor photographer, but this was such a great group that I felt like they “deserved” some great light, even if it was just a sunrise. But, I know it doesn’t work that way. Fortunately, they brought their own light thanks to their great attitudes, and I sure enjoyed spending time with everyone.
