Hello Friends and Bloggers,
I have been quiet for a while because I am teaching an intensive landscape workshop in the Grand Tetons this week. It is exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. The students and I wake up early, sometimes by 4:15 a.m. to get to the best sunrise locations. The Tetons face east, so the best light is in the mornings. We shoot all day, taking a lunch break to eat and download images. Then we hit the road again for early evening shoots when the shadows are long and the light is clear. We are tired at the end of the day, but satisfied with our shots, so it is all worth it.
This year I am adding video and special effects to the workshop. We made our own pinhole cameras and the students got some unusual shots with them. We are using specialized photo software programs to make the images really special.
Tomorrow is my last day of teaching the workshop. I will be sad to leave this place that is a gift to humans and animals alike. But I will be back again next year. I hope you can join me.
