Where We Go: The Grand Teton at sunset. Moulton Barn with the Tetons in the background. Reflections of Mt. Moran in the backwaters of the Snake River at Oxbow Bend. Photograph all of these locations as part of a small, fun group led by landscape photographer and professional instructor Doug Johnson. It’s a week of exploring and photographing Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park, where opportunities to create works of art exist around every corner.
What You Learn: Being surrounded by this much natural beauty while photographing with a professional at your side makes this week a special experience you won’t soon forget. Johnson’s mission is to transform you into a more educated, intentional photographer who can use a camera with confidence. He helps you to identify your landscape photography goals and then works with you to achieve them. Along the way he uses classroom lectures to cover various topics ranging from the Zone system for color, equipment considerations for shooting wildlife and landscapes, and how to achieve proper exposure in an environment where weather changes the light from minute to minute. In the field, at sunrise or sunset, he encourages and assists you. Back in the classroom, he critiques your images so you have clear ideas to help you improve. Seeing the images created by other participants helps train your eye to become a better photographer.
Considerations: You should be comfortable with the manual exposure operation of your camera.
