What would you give to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Ansel Adams in the darkroom? To watch him wave his hand beneath focused beams of light as a reverse image of Full Moon over Half Dome burned into the paper's silver surface. No two prints would ever be precisely the same. He was as much an artist here as he was in the field.
As much as I love to keep my teaching focused on in-the-field technique and creative inspiration, at some point you have to address the other HALF of the art form. This is a course for wilderness photography enthusiasts dedicated to that other half of the craft. I hope this course is much like that experience next to Ansel might be. Except that in the place of a darkroom, we have a lightroom. Instead of Ansel, you have me.
I have been shooting as a professional wilderness photographer for the past 15 years. I've been published in Time/Life, National Parks, Nature's Best, and National Wildlife.
I'm a purist. I started my first decade in photography shooting with slide film. Photo clubs made sure you followed rules!
So, if you want the guy who will give 7,499 Lightroom presets to make your images look just like his (over saturated and artificial as they may be) then I advise you look elsewhere. This is for the aspiring outdoor photographers who wish to train their eye (and hand) at editing their RAW images with ease and joy. For those who wish to truly be artists in the room of light. And to do so with as much simplicity and organization as possible, so that you can get back outside taking pictures, since that's what caused you to fall in love with this in the first place.
