The Sierra Nevada's majestic snow-capped mountains, dramatic winter skies and striking sunrises and sunsets make for amazing photographic opportunities. Join master photographers Jim Stimson and Jerry Dodrill for an exploration of the unique winter landscapes of the Eastern Sierra. The workshop will be based in Bishop, California, located in America's deepest valley between the dramatic Eastern Sierra Nevada and the White Mountains, both rising to over 14,000 feet.
Jim and Jerry will lead eight early morning and sunset field trips to locations in the Owens Valley, Eastern Sierra Nevada and the White Mountains. Emphasis will be on hands-on instruction, helping participants refine their seeing, improve their landscape compositions and technical skills and generally empower them to take control of their photography and move to the next level. Participants will learn techniques for photographing in cold weather conditions and managing exposure for snowy scenes ranging from low to high contrast. Lectures and projected constructive group critique sessions emphasize refining your creative vision and developing a strategic image processing workflow utilizing Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
This well-rounded workshop is appropriate for any level of outdoor photographer.
