This five-day workshop is beneficial to photographers of a beginning to advanced intermediate level, developing a solid foundation for beginners and a visual voice for the advanced intermediate artists. With the spectacular winter landscape of Yosemite Valley for inspiration, the instructor will emphasize how to identify potential images, distill the composition to its essential elements and to move beyond a basic documentation into the realm of personal expression. Students should come prepared for full days as Keith packs a lot into his classes. His proven method of instruction alternates a series of indoor sessions designed to help students refine their photographic vision, followed by extended, interactive field sessions where participants practice what they have learned.
While each season offers its own special qualities, veteran Yosemite photographers, like instructor Keith S. Walklet, know that dynamic winter conditions add even more beauty to the park’s spectacular landscape. Contrasted with the cool hues of frost and snow, the fiery light of February is unforgettable. This workshop was scheduled to take advantage of these conditions and the potential to capture one of the park’s most elusive images; Horsetail Fall backlit by the setting sun.
