NANPA Road Show Colorado

This is what Road Show participants can expect to see.

The Colorado NANPA Road Show is only a week away and Mother Nature is cooperating. Aspen trees are once again working their fall magic. The mountains of Rocky Mountain National Park are being transformed into blankets of gold, as the sound of bugling bull elk fill the valleys.

As host for this event, I will be sharing many of the techniques I have learned over the years photographing our wild brothers and sisters.

Here’s what’s in store for you . . .

In Search of the Winning Image
One of the things I have learned is what it takes to consistently produce a winning image. During the Road Show, I will reveal the biggest stumbling block photographers face in this process. Not only will I show you how to eliminate it, I will also show examples.

The Digital Darkroom: Making of a Symphony
Ansel Adams said, "The negative is the equivalent of the composer's score, and the print the performance." This takes us to step two in producing a winning image. During this segment you will learn the equivalent Photoshop techniques that Adams used in his chemical darkroom to transform negatives into a performance. Using a few simple techniques that I will reveal, you will be able to transform those digital files into performance masterpieces.

The Power of Photography: Using Your Photos to Safeguard Life on Planet Earth
It is my belief that we, as nature photographers, have a responsibility to protect the biodiversity of planet Earth and the integrity of its natural ecosystems. In this segment, you will learn how to use your images to create visually based programs to educate peopl and further the protection of our wild brothers and sisters.

That’s not all. There’s more. An entire segment will be devoted to . . .
Critiquing on the Wild Side
This portion of the Road Show will feature image critiquing that's fun, revealing, and perhaps even inspiring as participant's images are digitally projected and critiqued for everyone's benefit. Each participant will bring a selection of three images, preferably featuring wildlife subjects, stored on a memory stick, for this session.
