What You'll Learn
This 3-hour class is a comprehensive presentation that covers all the essential skills and tools necessary to capture incredible landscape photographs. Whether you're new to landscapes or quite experienced, when you leave this workshop you will have enough photographic factoids and philosophy to make your next venture outside a successful photographic endeavour.
This class will cover:
Exposure: light metering, values, contrast, histogram, zone system concepts, aperture, shutter speed, and iso.
Sharpness: the physiology of sharpness, how the eye and the lens see, resolution, focus, contrast, depth of field, tripods, image stabilization, focus stacking, and more.
Visual Aesthetics and Equipment
How to approach and photograph different types of landscapes in different seasons, scale, points of view, qualities of light, and times of day. We'll explore color theory, color temperature and white balance, 360-degree awareness, equipment selection, and macro, wide angle, and telephoto techniques.
Photography as the Art of Seeing
How does photography teach us to see? We'll explore composition, balance within yourself and with your subject, beauty, impact, and how to get your audience to see what you want them to.
What To Expect
- This is an intermediate-level workshop that is perfect for non-beginner photographers who are looking to develop more skills and techniques around landscape photography. As such, this workshop is not for total beginners. You must have a basic idea of how to operate the basic controls on your camera.
- This is not an outdoor, in the field, hands-on class but a lecture-style workshop.
- A review of student work is not a part of this workshop and this class will not cover or endorse brands of equipment.
Please arrive on time, as we will start with a full head of steam at the top of the hour.
Who Should Take This
This is a class for photographers looking to learn about or improve their landscape photography skills. If you still need basic camera or photography instruction and are not comfortable shooting using manual settings (not using automatic settings), we suggest taking our Hands-On Digital Photography Introduction prior to attending this course.
Presented By Chris Brown
Chris Brown has been practicing photography in Boulder for over 40 years, specializing in medium and large format landscapes. He was the first photographer in Colorado to receive a commission in the Art in Public Places program, for his series "The Hydrologic Cycle: Studies of Water," housed at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After making Cibachrome prints in the darkroom for 10 years, Chris became enthralled with digital inkjet printmaking, and how has prints in numerous public, private and corporate collections, including the Denver Art Museum, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

This class was a good one. It was geared for beg/intermediates and Chris Brown provided a lot of good information. He talked about what he carries for his sessions, about camera settings and filters, about possible mistakes easily made, and about the ethos of photography. LeslieRead All Comments
