Banff Landscape Photography Workshop

Banff Landscape Photography Workshop

May 27-29, 2016

The Banff Landscape Photography Workshop is a weekend of intensive shooting and learning.  The emphasis of this event is on the learning through presentations, editing demonstrations, photography field trips and a critique review of your photographs.  Join Robert Berdan and I as we host a loaded weekend of nature photography for you.

We’ll teach you how to edit a digital RGB image to simulate a traditional Infrared photograph, like this one.

The days are long in Banff this time of year with 16.5 hours of daylight between sunrise (5:35am) and sunset (9:45pm), and the pace is a little intense for the 2 days and 2 nights of the workshop.  Please make sure you’re well rested before you come to the workshop.

We’ll have some reading material to give to you before you arrive in Banff to help give you get a head start on the weekend.  We’ll also have material for you to access on the website after the weekend as well.  This material will help you to review what we presented to you during the workshop so you can go back and study the material later on at your own pace.

We’ll spend most of our time in the classroom instructing you on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop as well as other software you may or may not have heard of like Picasa.  We’ll show you how to edit on the fly in the field and how to get all the editing into adobe editing products.  This step seems logical but it is a step most photographers miss.  You’ll select a few photographs that you captured and edited on the first two days of the workshop for us to review on the last day.   This constructive critique session is something that participants often appreciate.

 We’ll walk you through detailed editing demonstrations and our individual editing workflows to help you develop your own workflow.  We’ll be teaching landscape photography shooting techniques and composition in the classroom with follow up in the field.  We’ll also teach you special techniques such as abstraction in photography at different stages along the entire landscape photography process.

 The workshop material includes Robert’s valuable and detailed editing guidebooks.  These manuals will likely become important reference material for you long after the workshop is over.
