Photo Tips

Today we reached our halfway point on the Yellowstone & Grand Tetons in Spring workshop, and we finally reached the majestic landscapes of Grand Teton National Park. Grand Teton is truly a feast for the eyes with towering mountains and plenty of wildlife. The image of the Tetons above is an HDR image processed with Photomatix, then converted to Black & White.

Today we set out to make a few images of this dramatic landscape, as well as look for one of the Tetons emblematic mammals, the Moose. It took us a bit for found two very cooperative bull moose. These looked to be young animals, and as you can see, they are also shedding their winter coats.

As a nice end to another long day, we got treated by another Red Fox who was “mousing” for a meal.

Quick Tip: Make more images than you think you’ll want or need. Oftentimes when you revisit a shoot months later you find some jewels when you take a look with fresh eyes.
