FALL COLOR IN SOUTHWEST COLORADO
The San Juan Mountains in southwest Colorado provide one of the most dramatic, breathtaking backdrops for Fall color in the entire United States. Endless hillsides of Golden Aspen trees sparkle amid tall, jagged snow-capped mountain peaks that rival those found only in the Swiss Alps.
Join Colorado-based full-time professional photographer, Charles Needle, on this unforgettable 6-day Autumn photography workshop where you’ll spend days driving dusty country roads that wind their way to unmatched, jaw-dropping Fall scenery. Treat your lenses to giant century-old Aspen groves, perfectly still pond reflections bursting with color, unusual colorful rock formations, historic Gold Rush era mining structures, and majestic mountain ranges above a tapestry of yellow, orange and red foliage. With some luck, we might even catch some early season snowfall blanketing the slopes, or encounter bull moose or elk during the rutting season.
Charles will guide you to some of the most beautiful spots in the area and provide expert instruction on how to best capture the light and make interesting compositions. Field and classroom sessions will emphasize expressive, Impressionistic imagery and how to find and compose striking, unusual intimate landscape scenes, as well as abstracts and creative closeups. The artistic possibilities will be limited only by your imagination in this photographer’s paradise.
All skill levels and camera formats welcome, including smartphone cameras. Participants should also have basic proficiency in post-capture image editing software, such as Lightroom, Photoshop or Snapseed.
