Camera Fun In The Grand Tetons

Posted on

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.

A photo my student, Preston Smith,  took that was terribly overexposed. I saved it with great imaging software manipulations.

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.

Hello Photographers,

Schawbacher Landing, Grand Tetons, by Gina Genis

Thought I’d let you know about some upcoming landscape and nature workshops.
First, is the spectacular Grand Tetons. I have a few spots open, and would love to fill them with one of you. The dates are from June 25 – 29. Every year we have a great time, and go home with images worth printing and framing. I have a lot of new info to share, discount coupon codes for equipment, and new software techniques that really make your images sing. Click on the “Grand Tetons” link above for details.

Next, enjoy the beautiful mountains of Southern California in Idyllwild, for a 2 day workshop on June 2 & 3. This workshop takes you into the forest to photograph a waterfall, spectacular panorama sunsets, flowers, lakes, and more. Idyllwild is a mini Yosemite, but also has the advantage of a charming town for movies, great food and shopping too. This workshop is only $400. Click on the “Idyllwild” link above for details.

Want to go to the beach? Like old architecture? My Beach & Mission weekend workshop is perfect for you. Take advantage of the Laguna Beach area in April, and we might get lucky and see some migrating whales. Last year, my group witnessed a mother and baby whale close to shore, and a wedding on the beach right in front of them. It doesn’t get better than that. We will also visit a mission with great architecture and blooming gardens. This workshop is only $400. Click on the “Beach & Mission” link above for details.

Little time, but still want to learn? How about a 4 hour Creative Photography workshop? This is a fun way to make unusual images right inside your camera. I designed this workshop for people who want to see in a new way, need inspiration, and want to play around with their cameras. It’s a blast. Join us on April 7th in the Laguna Beach area. This workshop is only $100. Click on the “Creative Photography” link above for details.

Maybe a workshop is not right for you. Contact me for Private Lessons. I love to help you on a personal basis so you can take your photography to the next level.

Keep your eye on my website: I will be adding more 1/2 day and 1 day workshops for portraits, camera basics, macro photography, and more.

Also, I am affiliated with Lensbaby, onOne Software, Think Tank, and B & H Photo/Video. That means I can give you a coupon code for discounts. If you are going to buy new equipment, contact me first for a coupon code.

If you have questions, feel free to email me.

Keep that shutter clicking.
