Workshop Announcement: Introduction to Large Format Photography. Feb 13-14, 2010

Introduction to Large Format Photography Workshop
February 13-14, 2010, Alabama Hills, Eastern Sierra (just outside Lone Pine, California)
Limited to only 5 photographers; $349 per person

4x5 large format view camera in the field

Despite the digital photography boom, large format film photography is witnessing a resurgence of interest and an increase in users. Large format negatives and transparencies offer extraordinary resolution, and view cameras offer extraordinary control over fine focus and perspective. Simply stated, a large format camera offers the ultimate in photographic control over the creative image-making process. Further, a market flooded with used but clean large format gear and a couple of new economical yet quality view camera manufacturers have made this an excellent time to enter the world of large format with only a moderate amount of expense (a good LF kit can cost and weigh less than a professional D-SLR kit).

My teaching methods and techniques are direct and easy to comprehend, and I will successfully put you in full control of your camera. At the completion of this intensive two-day workshop, you will be able to efficiently and confidently compose, focus, and expose your own photographs.

This workshop will take place in the world famous Alabama Hills (featured in scores of movies and television commercials), just outside Lone Pine, California (in the rainshadow of Mt. Whitney and the High Sierra). We’ll be learning in an outstanding location and will have access to the Eastern Sierra’s incredible wintry mountain scenery.

Due to the decrease in available instruction, my Introduction to Large Format Photography workshops have become increasingly sought after. Please do not delay your registration, as I expect this workshop to fill quickly. For more information and to register for this workshop, please see my Workshops page. Thank you for your interest!

Our Creative Landscape Photography Workshop clients photograph the landscape and sky high above the Caineville Badlands in Utah. Just look at that beautiful sky!

Autumn color just days away!

Aspens & TalusAutumn is for many photographers one of the most joyous of all seasons. Obvious color is the most common motivator for many photographers. For me it is the changing angle of light and the melancholy mood created by the changing of the seasons. At least in the high country, the first snowfall can quickly follow on the heels of fall color.

October is typically a busy month for me. October 3-4 I will be leading a private tour in the Eastern Sierra for a group of three, and then on October 10-12, Guy Tal and I lead a group workshop in and around Capitol Reef National Park in Utah (we still have a couple of seats available in this workshop).

What are your leaf-peeping and photography plans this coming season? Start making them, as autumn officially begins one week from today….
