Digital Photography Field Workshop – P0617
DATES: July 12 – 13, 2014
SKILL LEVEL: Open to all
CONCEPT: Spend a dynamic weekend photographing some of the most scenic locations in the Rocky Mountains: sites near Aspen and Snowmass with mountain views, sparkling streams, a multitude of wildflowers and 100-year-old artifacts from bygone mining days. This “photographer’s dream tour” reveals many possibilities that may be revisited later with in-depth visual exploration.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Digital cameras and discussion of camera technique for aesthetic and technical applications are covered in the field. Workshop class meets in the photography studio at Anderson Ranch for critiques and group discussions on a variety of digital processing techniques including basic Adobe Lightroom cataloging and processing, high dynamic range, black & white conversion and more. Led by digital photographer Derek Johnston.
ACTIVITIES: Derek introduces the historical and scenic significance of each location and works with each student throughout the weekend to improve his/her photography. Students spend at least an hour at each site, with driving and hiking times kept to a minimum. Lab times include group and individual instruction on digital capture processing and cataloging.
FACULTY: Derek Johnston is a professor and program director in the professional photography program at Colorado Mountain College. His fine-art landscape work is exhibited across the country. He has been honored with a Colorado Council on the Arts Grant in Visual Arts and is featured in the acclaimed anthology, “Photography’s Multiple Roles: Art, Market, Document, Science,” published by the Museum of Contemporary Photography. www.derekjohnstonimages.com
