In order to create an image, we need light... We cover the basics of light and how to see, measure and track the light. This workshop is for the natural light enthusiast who respects and loves the landscape and realizes that light has many aspects from exposure and color to capture.

This class brings your photography to the Next Level. You will have better images if you understand the relationship of Light to your camera. Knowing light and how to manipulate, see and track the light will make all the difference to your images.

Anyone can shoot a picture, it's what we do with the light that makes all the difference to the quality of the image.

Photography Workflow and Digital Processing

You have shot all these images and you have to do something with them so you can work with them to make prints, organize them, and edit the images to make them look good. However, you don't know how. You may know some of what to do, read books, watched You Tube, but it's not making a whole lot of sense - as the person in the video is talking fast. 

We can help you make sense of it in our Photography workflow/Processing classes. You will have a much better understanding of the software and the terminology and "how to," get more from your images. Check out the Workflow page...

"Best workshop I have ever taken. Vicki went above and beyond my expectations. She provided excellent, personalized instruction, based on a customized workshop design.

She also shared a LOT of great insights based on helping me to assess my own style, taking me out to shoot in the kinds of locations suited to my needs, and then providing interactive coaching and feedback.

As a result of taking her workshop, I am going to become a much better photographer. Even before the course was done, I had already made significant improvements. I highly recommend her services." -Darren Olson, June 25th
