At a PODAS workshop there is not much rest. The workshop has a jammed packed schedule of photography excursions and classroom sessions. Within 45 minutes of arriving at the Furnace Creek Resort in Death Valley the attendees were in the meeting room and the workshop was beginning. We started out with a welcome presentation, a slide show showing the park and distribution of the Phase One loaner camera systems. We then took off to our first location Zabriskie Point. This was for many people the first chance to use a medium format camera. As you can see in the photos below it didn’t take long for everyone to be shooting like they have owned the cameras for a long time. It was extremely windy and made shooting a challenge. So far so good. We came back to the resort enjoyed a great dinner and then a quick classroom meeting. We leave at 5AM for sunrise shots and then after breakfast we will be on an all day excursion to the Race Track at Death Valley. It is not where you race cars. We’ll see what we come back with. Visit again and take a look.
