Explore the magnificent summer wildflowers high in the Colorado Rockies.

This workshop will focus on close-up photography (macro) techniques and fine-art digital image processing.

This workshop is geared towards enthusiasts with a solid 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 group, 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.
