Ansel Adams called Pt. Lobos "the greatest meeting of land and sea" on earth. It is truly an amazing combination of rock, surf, wildlife, changing light and abstraction...aqua surf, orange lichen, organic rock forms and waving sea palms. We'll walk the trails, wander the rocks, get lost in form and light.
Pt. Lobos is synonymous with west coast landscape photography. It is where so many of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston's photographs were made. It is where so many photographic pilgrimages have been made. It is where Friends of Photography and countless other workshops have concentrated their attention. It is, to say the least, a spectacular and well photographed location. But it remains a place of great allure, wonderful rock formations, floating kelp forests, and amazing color of surf and wave.
We'll explore great locations at Pt. Lobos, Carmel and Big Sur over the period of a few days, review our work and then go back to explore more. As part of exploring the photographic and exhibition history of the region, we'll visit photo galleries, explore the Carmel photography scene, and likely eat well in this four-day immersion into classical California landscape photography.
The workshop will be a dynamic combination of a traditional landscape photography workshop while diving deep into the digital age. Technical and aesthetic considerations will be discussed in detail. Our concentration will be on controlling your camera's operation to achieve your desired technical results, while building composition and visual skills to make the photograph what you want it to be. Digital exposure and dynamic range, composition, emotion and amazement-all will be part of our 4-day excursion into the evolving world of digital photography.
- Composition techniques for landscape, travel and portraiture photography
- Lens selection and lighting tools to create more emotional, compelling images
- Workflow tips and techniques for both photography and digital processing
- Photographing models in a variety of lighting situations
- Classroom critiques to open your eyes to different possibilities & improve your photographic skills
