Autumn Among the Aspen
Location: Aspen, Colorado
Dates: September 23 to September 28, 2012
Workshop Tuition: $1,150
The Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado surrounded by towering peaks, quiet lakes and colorful groves of aspen will offer the participants an outstanding opportunity to photograph in the field with Ray McSavaney and Eric Biggerstaff. The primary emphasis of this workshop will be to make images, lots of images. Possible locations the class will visit include the Maroon Bells, Independence Pass, the Grottos, McClure Pass, Castle Creek Valley, Marble, an old mining site and a ghost town. Field sessions will be spent working with Ray and Eric on your photographic compositions, understanding light, refining your camera technique and learning the ins and outs of making a fine photographic image. When not in the field we will conduct critiques, make presentations and hold discussions that will help improve your photographic knowledge. The workshop is really intended to help you learn about the “softer” side of photography, about making wonderful images no matter what format or type of camera you use.
September in Colorado is perfect for photographing the beautiful aspen groves that surround the area as they change into their fall colors. The workshop location will allow us to move to higher or lower elevations to take advantage of the best foliage at its peak color. Early morning sessions will occur in the quiet light of dawn, midday sessions will be dependent on lighting conditions and the evening sessions will run from the high contrast of full sunlight to the peaceful, luminescent light after sunset. Most days will end with dinner at one of a variety of restaurants with the possibility of an evening discussion to address questions that have come up during the day or to go over the next days activities.
