Huangshan outcrop. China.
Our first three days on Huangshan featured sunny days and blue skies. Great weather for casual visitors, but hardly ideal for photographers, who would prefer clouds and mist.
Our photo leaders, George DeWolfe & Lydia Goetze, teach a style of photography that mimics certain aspects of classical Chinese paintings. One important characteristic is to embrace the concept of emptiness, or negative space, as a compositional component. Huangshan is an ideal destination to practice this discipline, as it has been the source of inspiration for Chinese landscape painters over the centuries.
