Rocky Mountain workshop – Part II

After spending most of the night shooting the stars, the group returned to the YMCA of the Rockies for a short nap and then… back to the Park.  The sunrise brought a whole new dimension to the beauty of the mountains.

The site we were at provided two different views of equal value.  On one side the sun was rising and you saw the traditional light on the horizon growing in brightness and color.  On the other, all the reflected light.  Not quite as bright but easily just as stunning.  I am coming to appreciate how David Akoubian takes this into account when scouting a location and how he teaches students to “always look both ways” when shooting a scene.  Great advice in any situation.  Always plan for the image you want to capture but never miss an opportunity!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
