For three days I was like a kid in a candy store.  Never broke an ear-to-ear smile.  I have to say however, that the last night was the best!  The clouds where incredible.  Joe McNally was on a role.  Moose was making abrupt stops with the caravan of cars to get “that one” shot!  It really was a wonderful night.  I hated it to end.

That night the clouds where setting the stage.  As I framed the scenery I kept taking my camera upward.


I really was seeing this scene as black and white when shooting it.  What do you think…color or black and white?

I’m going with the Black and White!

The week started with a Bang!  I was fortunate to spend time with the greatest photographers in the world.  They filled the attendees with knowledge, passion and energy.  It really was incredible to stand with great photographers that each have their own legacy.  Varied as that may be they are all close friends.  I have come away with a headache from the information that was packed in such a short period.  New ideas, suggestions and processes.  WOW.  From there I jumped to the fire.  It’s all crazy around here.  Hope to keep my sanity!

I’m in Moab, Utah for a few days of intense photographic learning with a few of the world’s top photographers.  Can’t wait to get started today.  Though the next few days will be 18 hour days sleep will not even be on my mind….

Picture yourself at the seaside villages of Maine, the skyscraper of NYC, the base of the Golden Gate or in Santa Fe’s historic prison, these are just some of what our 2009-10 schedule brings you! Best of all, put yourself in this picture along with your new friends and the staff of DLWS right beside you capturing the moment to share latter on in all the photographs. That’s what every day, every shoot at a Digital Landscape Workshop Series event, is all about, chasing light in nature’s classroom! DLWS is all about exploring and developing YOUR vision, improving YOUR images and nurturing YOUR passion for photography.

Your instructors, Moose Peterson, Joe McNally, Laurie Excell and Kevin Dobler along with the rest the DLWS staff are all working photographers whose images span the globe.
