Early Bird Special by April 1st - spaces avaialble!
Join our skilled photo team of instructors for five fun-filled days in Pagosa Springs, CO, high in the Rockies in SW Colorado! This will be an ideal time to advance your photography and equipment knowledge as instructors with many years of professional experience will be there to answer all of your questions and share tips to improve your images. As we go on field trips during the day we will discuss composition, lighting and editing tips to broaden your knowledge of photography.
Here's some things we'll be doing:
Milky Way night photography and how to capture distant stars and galaxies using tracking equipment. Pagosa Springs is a dark sky area of the country so star gazing up here is amazing! Weather basics and helpful links to plan your next landscape photo shoot. You’ll also learn how seasons and time of day play an important role in creating better landscapes. Since mid-August is monsoon season in the Rockies, we may have the opportunity to shoot and chase afternoon thunderstorms along with learning how to expose and capture lightning. We will keep you busy with daily field trips to scenic areas in and around Pagosa Springs and some light duty hiking.
We will also create outdoor environmental portraits using volunteers from Pagosa Springs while we discuss composition and lighting techniques.
We start the workshop in the afternoon on Wednesday the 16th at a large home up in the mountains, just NW downtown Pagosa Springs and finish during the evening of Saturday the 20th. We will be conducting a short review of portfolios that day and projecting your top 10 images from the workshop after the sponsored dinner. We have room for six attendees to stay with us during the workshop. While we strongly urge attendees to stay with us, you are under no obligation to do so and we have pricing for lodging and non-lodging.
