Explore the magnificent summer wildflowers high in the Colorado Rockies. From our base in Crested Butte, Colorado, we'll have easy access to some amazing views and fields of paintbrush, lupine, and columbines. We will capture both close-up (macro) images as well as scenic views of the mountains, streams and wildflowers.
This workshop is geared towards intermediate photographers or higher; you will be expected to have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of exposure and how to use your own camera(s). You will receive hadns-on field and classroom instruction each day. Because this is a small grouo, I tailor the instruction to meet your personal needs. Classroom topics are "ask me anything" to include workflow and post-processing using Lightroom/Photoshop/Plug-ins.
