Learning to See: compositions in the landscape – P0718

Bill Ellzey

DATES: July 13 – 17, 2015

SKILL LEVEL: II

CONCEPT: Learn to see and compose landscape images in your own way. Students consider images that make the ordinary into the extraordinary by focusing on natural elements, from lichen and wildflowers to majestic landscapes. Our focus is on seeking and honing one’s personal vision of the landscape.

MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use digital SLR cameras, lenses, tripods, remote cords and favorite gadgets. Digital processing is done using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Students print a selection of their images from the class.

ACTIVITIES: We take advantage of Anderson Ranch’s proximity to some of the Rocky Mountains’ most beautiful areas, with field trips to reflective lakes, ghost towns, cascading streams and wildflower meadows. Students spend afternoons in the studio downloading, processing, discussing and printing images.

FACULTY: Bill Ellzey began making a living with his camera in 1972. The camera has taken him on assignment or for teaching to Egypt, Alaska, India, China, Japan, Mexico, Patagonia and Bhutan. His work is published nationally and internationally in books, textbooks and magazines, including National Geographic, and has been exhibited in numerous galleries and collections. www.billellzey.com
