The South Dakota Badlands is the perfect setting for photographers who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, monochrome, and long exposures.
Each day, we will have the opportunity download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products. Our focus will be on the complete end to-end workflow of landscape photography, from composition to final digital or print output.
Badlands COVID-19 Update (5/28/2020)
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I am implementing the following safe workshop policies for this event.

All participants are required to have their own transportation to the field sites (no carpooling)
All field activities will required adherence to appropriate social distancing measures, including the use of cloth face coverings.

I will provide instruction to the group via video conference either during the workshop (assuming the internet at the hotel cooperates) or afterwards in private group classes online.
In the event the workshop is cancelled, you will be refunded in full
Final payment deadline has been extended to July 1, 2020
By understanding how your digital camera sensor records data, you’ll get a complete understanding of why the “correct” exposure doesn’t always match what the histogram says. From there, I’ll teach you some useful ways of setting up your camera to record the best possible exposure and then make the necessary adjustments to that image in post-processing using Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop.

Spring is here (finally) and flowers are popping up everywhere! This is the perfect time to capture the delicate details and colors of flowers. Whether you shoot wildflowers outdoors, or even just floral arrangements on your kitchen table, here are some ideas to help you get better shots.
Long exposure photography is one of my favorite creative techniques. Whether it’s a stream, moving lights, or even slow-moving clouds, a long exposure transforms a moving subject into something unique and sometimes surreal.
If you missed my live long exposure photography webinar, you can watch the replay online through May 31st. Simply sign up for a ticket here and you’ll get the replay link via email. Enjoy!
