Spend a fun and engaging day photographing some of the most scenic locales in the Rocky Mountains. Students visit locations near Aspen and Snowmass with mountain views, sparkling streams, a multitude of wildflowers, and 100-year-old artifacts from the area’s storied bygone mining days. This photographer’s dream tour reveals a variety of eye-catching possibilities that can be revisited later with in-depth visual exploration.
Media & Techniques:
We cover digital cameras and discuss camera techniques for aesthetic and technical application in the field. We cover HDR photography, high dynamic range and panoramic photography.
We learn about the historic and scenic significance of each location. Students work one-on-one with the instructor throughout the day to improve their photography. We spend at least one hour at each site, with driving and hiking times kept to a minimum.
