If you have taken many photographs but aren’t sure how to process them to get them to the next level, this is the event to attend.
Many photographers take shots and then just email/print/post them as is and they receive a tepid response. Why is this? Because they aren’t sure what their final image was going to look like when they took the shot. Visualization of what the final product is going to look like is of the utmost importance when photographing. Otherwise you end up with shots looking like they were taken in a parking lot.
You will be motivated and excited by the speakers, as all of us have experience in how to make images better. But it’s not about our ability to make images better, it’s about us teaching you how to make YOUR shots better. All of the speakers are entertaining, educational and, most importantly, accessible. We do our best to answer questions and to help guide you through the labyrinth of photo editing.
This symposium will cover some shooting and composition with respect to post processing, that is, what you do after you click the shutter. How do you use Lightroom, what’s the best way to edit your shots, and more advanced techniques for:
Panorama multi-image shooting
HDR (high dynamic range) images
Black and white processing
These symposiums have been very well received because attendees get a lot of education for their time and the nominal cost. If you have ever wanted to learn the basics of how to make your photographs look better, this is the event to attend.
We had an excellent turnout for the talk, even though the Snow King Hill Climb was taking place at the same time. There are some very dedicated photographers in the valley. The group was enjoyable and we received very good feedback on topics for future classes. There were a stunning 13 different ideas for photography classes. If someone has a suggestion, please let me know and I’ll pitch it to the Jackson Hole Art Association.
With private photography lessons, you can learn in a comfortable, private setting at your own pace. If you don’t understand something, I will review whatever is confusing you. There is no threat of feeling foolish in front of a class full of students. I am patient and remember when I was struggling with my camera, too!
I will be presenting today at the Teton Photography Group symposium on improving
your photography technique and making great images. My presentation is on Intermediate Camera Technique. There is a lot of material to cover in 35 minutes. It will only be an overview, as each of the topics can be an entire day’s class if you really want to get into it.
