I enjoyed teaching a night sky photography class with a small group of clients last night in Limon, Colorado. Despite some early cloud cover, conditions improved after dark and we ended up with some nice shots. The image above is a 25 minute composite (50 x 30s exposures).

Colorado Wildflowers!

I’m back from leading a workshop to the Colorado high country, where we took a group of 8 photographers on a wildflower photography safari.

On the trip, we photographed the wonderful wildflowers around Crested Butte, Colorado. This year was particularly spectacular, as we’ve had unusually wet weather in Colorado.

During the workshop, we not only covered macro techniques, but we also examined the role of complimentary colors, backgrounds, and composition. The area around Crested Butte was perfect for all kinds of photography, from close-ups to landscapes. Everyone came away with a tremendous number of awesome photographs!

Thanks for looking!
