Brian will discuss additional techniques as well as equipment that will be helpful for Sunday’s walking tour. His presentation will include the proper camera bags, tripods, close up filters, graduated filters, polarizing filters, and situations in which to make the best use of these accessories for capturing better photographs.

 

Photographic Walking Tour

 

Tuesday night’s lecture will be followed by an early morning excursion to photograph the wildflowers and landscapes of the Colorado Rockies. Some past locations have been Brainard Lake and Caribou Ranch. Due to the late snow, the best location will be determined by the Mike’s Camera staff in the weeks leading up to the event. The location will be a picturesque setting with many opportunities for shooting wildflowers and gorgeous landscapes.

 

We will leave Mike’s Camera (Boulder Location: 2500 Pearl St. Boulder Colorado) by motor coach at 4:00 a.m. and travel to the mountains to catch the early morning golden light and optimum shooting time and be all set-up for Sunrise at 5:49 AM.

 

Once at our shooting location this small group will be given hands on assistance with their picture taking. Around 10:00 a.m. we will head back to Mike’s Camera for lunch and our critique. A box lunch and refreshments will be provided.

 

The Rocky Mountains lend a great backdrop to capture Colorado’s beautiful landscapes and wildflowers and is close to home. We will travel to a location approximately 30 miles from Boulder.

 

Our photographic walking tour will take us on an easy hike around the shooting area which could be up to 2 miles. The trail will be an easy and pleasant stroll through the mountains. You will be able to shoot wildflowers, and a whole community of fauna that can be found in the forest. In addition we can plan on seeing a whole host of birds, mammals and insects.

 

Critique & Review

We will plan to be back at Mike’s Camera in Boulder by noon for the group critique.

After a morning of picture taking and instruction we will regroup at Mike’s Camera for a critique of your work and review of topics covered. During lunch, each student will select and submit three of his/her favorite images to a disc and submit for the group critique.

 

We plan on wrapping up the day by 2:00PM
