Chasing Light: Elevating Your Pictures into Photographs
with Colby Brown
March 31 - April 4, 2014

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.


As photographers, we all want to capture amazing images. But how do we do it? Where do we start? Spend four days with Colby Brown, and uncover the tips and techniques on the fundamentals of landscape and travel photography that take your work to the next level.

During our time together, we examine the significance of light and its role in creating captivating images. Colby discusses the construction of creative compositions, exploring the ways in which foreground elements, scale, and perspective can be used to highlight your subject matter to maximum effect. We consider our options not only for photography gear but also for correct use of the elements of exposure: ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Lastly, we dive into the various aspects of digital post-processing and discover how it can elevate your pictures into outstanding photographs.

We spend ample time out in the field with Colby, putting into practice the core principles and concepts that we have explored. Each day we engage in individual and group photo critiques, conduct portfolio reviews, and discuss the philosophy behind what makes a photograph great. We also walk through various practical aspects of the digital darkroom, from both a creative and workflow-process standpoint.
