Digital cameras are great tools for landscape photography, but sometimes the learning curve seems steep. This class is designed to help simplify and demystify the entire process, from capture to print. We'll photograph the peak fall color in Yosemite Valley, where you'll learn the technical aspects of image capture like exposure and depth of field, plus how to use light, color, and design to create expressive images. We'll then take those images into our digital lab and process and print them using Lightroom and Photoshop.

Topics include:

-Exposure
-Reading histograms
-Depth of field
-White balance
-Choosing Raw or JPEG
-Composition
-Light
-Capturing a mood
-Editing, cataloging, processing, and printing images with Adobe -Photoshop Lightroom
-Further processing in Photoshop CS5

This class is designed for photographers of all levels, but participants should have some photography experience and be familiar with the operation of their camera. A digital SLR is recommended, but an advanced compact camera (with complete manual operation and Raw mode) is okay. Some prior experience with Lightroom or Photoshop is recommended.

Private Workshops

I started offering private workshops about six years ago, and they've become very popular. People like the opportunity to take a class tailored to their specific skill level, interests, and schedule. Individual attention also really accelerates the learning curve: students seem to learn as much during a day of one-on-one instruction as they do in two or three days of a group workshop.
