Wildflowers as Far as You Can See . . .
Colorado wildflowers are second in beauty only to the amazing scenery of Colorado itself.
But hey . . . it's the flowers we're after! While we're photographing those beauties I'll offer as much in the field photographic education that you can handle. This always proves to be an amazingly fun road trip. We'll spend hours in the field with endless flowers and scenery you'll not want to leave. I will also offer image critiques during the afternoons on Saturday and Sunday. These image critique opportunities coupled with hands-on experiene will almost guarantee you beautiful results and help you to become an amazing fine art photographer..
We'll start in Ouray and wander around SW Colorado in search of wildflowers including Yankee Boy Basin, Ofir Pass and more.
Some of the topics and techniques I plan to cover:
- Image pre-visualization
- Lens Selection
- Lots more as time permits
If you'd like to see what you too can create, visit my fine art web site at jeffjohnsonfineart.com
This workshop is limited to 13 attendees so that I can run around and get with each of you to help and instruct as much as you desire. It is open to all levels of skill & desire so don’t be shy
