Digital Black & White
Ansel Adams is considered the master of black & white photography, creating the Zone System with Fred Archer to perfect the exposure of his stunning photographs. Using the beautiful Reynolda landscape as our backdrop, this workshop will focus on toning, tinting, exposure, contrast and other simple techniques to get digital black & white photos looking more like traditional darkroom prints! 
Mindfulness and Composition
Adams's photographs were not random or accidental. He immersed himself in his landscapes and studied minute details of the places he photographed. In this workshop, we'll focus on two aspects of his superior work: mindfulness and composition. Open your senses to the world around you and hone your skills for photographing in the moment. With a few simple exercises, you'll be on your way to taking better photographs with richer meaning and composition.
