The Ansel Adams Gallery recently announced their 2013 workshops. I'm pleased to be teaching four Yosemite photography workshops for the Gallery next year—Landscapes in the Digital Darkroom: Mastering Lightroom (January); Spring Yosemite Digital Camera Workshop (April); Hidden Yosemite (July); and The Digital Landscape: Autumn in Yosemite (October).
As many of you know, I'm a big fan of Lightroom because it’s simple, yet powerful—easy to use, but sophisticated enough to get great results with almost any image. Last January was the first time I taught a workshop specifically focused on this tool: Landscapes in the Digital Darkroom: Mastering Lightroom. This class was popular, and a lot of fun, so we'll be doing it again next January. Of course it's not all computer work—the workshop includes field sessions to photograph snowy January landscapes, the rising full moon, and, if we're lucky, clearing storms. I'm really looking forward to it!
The other three workshops—Spring Yosemite Digital Camera Workshop, Hidden Yosemite, and The Digital Landscape—have been very popular in the past, and sometimes fill quickly, so be sure to reserve space early.
And stay tuned... I'll be announcing more workshops within the next month.
With over 25 years of experience photographing Yosemite, I plan each workshop to take advantage the light, weather, and best seasonal opportunities, so you can make great photographs during the class. But I also help you develop your own vision and find the less-obvious images that only you can see. In all my workshops, I'm dedicated to making sure that every student comes away with new skills, new inspiration, and new ideas about how they can express themselves through their photography.
