One of my favorite prairie parks is the uncrowded Badlands National Park in South Dakota. Much like Teddy Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, the badlands here come alive with the warm light of early morning or late evening. June is a great time to visit the park as dramatic thunderstorms can sweep across the plains making for great photo ops. There is also typically a variety of prairie wildlife to photograph such as bison with newborn tawny colored calves, prairie dogs, pronghorn antelope and surprisingly enough, bighorn sheep with lambs. Outside of the park boundary is also worth exploring as there are old granaries, rusty automobiles and ghost towns on the vast high plains that make great photo subjects. You don’t want to miss this Badlands National Park Photo Tour!
EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS: A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens (17-35mm range) a medium telephoto lens such as 70-200mm and a 300+mm lens if you are interested in capturing birds or wildlife.
