Summer & Fall 2014 Workshops

Summer/Fall 2013 Photography Workshops and Lessons:


During the Summer and Fall here in Crested Butte, I will be offering evening Photography lessons. These are generally about 3 hours of intensive, yet fun, instruction in the field.

I believe one of the best ways to learn is hands on,  in a field of wildflowers or under a grove of golden aspen with a dramatic sky.


Main points that are covered during our time together in the field.:

  • How to actually move through the landscape you are photographing.  Relationships within the frame and how to tie it all together. Finding a foreground, or a background can be fairly simple, but I find most people struggle with putting it all together.
  • Finding compositions and tips on learning to see “flat” or in 2 dimensions.
  • Getting a good exposure and reading histograms.
  • Hyperfocal distance and using proper f-stops to ensure maximum depth of field.
  • The Use of Graduated Neutral Density Filters (if you are shooting landscapes, digital or film, I believe these filters are essential).
  • Tripod techniques. Anybody ever actually show you how to use your tripod? Ill give you some methods to keeping your three legged friend working with you, not against you.
  • If you are a film shooter, Ill give you some great tips on metering and finding 18% grey in a scene…as well as all of the above!
