3-day workshop starting July 17 with Evan Anderman
Learn the subtleties of landscape photography with Denver-based nature photographer Evan Anderman. Workshop includes a three-hour introductory session, a full day of shooting in South Park, and a follow-up critique session to be held at Evan’s studio in Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe. While creating dynamic compositions we’ll cover such topics as equipment, workflow, exposure, perspective, time of day, and quality of light.
South Park is an intermontane grassland basin in central Colorado encompassing approximately 1,000 square miles around the headwaters of the South Platte River. Designated as a National Heritage Area in 2009, it offers many photographic opportunities during every month of the year. From the wide vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges to the interesting ranch buildings and historic structures throughout South Park, this landscape has something for everyone.
Evan Anderman seeks to challenge our understanding of the relationship between human beings and the natural world by documenting the changing landscapes, streams, and atmosphere that are overlooked by human development. He finds solace in the solitude that seemingly barren areas offer, and is empowered to rise to the challenge of portraying these landscapes with optimism.
- Tuesday evening – slide presentation and discussion at CPAC (3-4 hours). We’ll also set up carpools for the shoot on Wednesday.
- Wednesday – Meet in South Park early to shoot the sunrise at 5:52 am, we’ll wander around various locations throughout the day and shoot the sunset at 8:32 pm before heading back to Denver. Lunch will be provided and we’ll find a nice spot during the middle of the day for a little siesta to keep our energy up for the afternoon shooting.
- Thursday evening – we’ll gather at Evan’s studio in the Bolt Factory at 209 Kalamath Street to discuss the shoot and how to get the best out of everyone’s shots (3 hours).
