I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the amazing photo workshop Autumn in the Aspens. The workshop exceeded all of my expectations and I cannot imagine a better forum, or format, for a photography course.
Not only did I end up with some amazing photographs, the skills and techniques I learned will last me a lifetime. It took quite a while to sort through all of the shots we took, but the time we spent in Lightroom was invaluable. I now have a library structure that is intuitive and easy to use and best of all, my defaults are now set the way I want them so it is automatic.
The “homework” you two did in advance of our outings was invaluable. Starting with selecting the dates for “optimum” color and foliage, your advanced planning came through in all aspects of the trip. You timed the color perfectly and the proof is in the amazing shots we all ended up with. It was quite evident you had scouted the locations, lighting and time of day in advance our actual shoot. You knew what to expect at each stop we made and set our timing and location accordingly. Everything from our sunrise shots in the Aspen grove where we focused on shading and shadows, to the breathtaking morning shots we got of the mountain range, was timed perfectly. One of the most memorable shots we went on was the night shoot where we captured the star trails. The stacked photo I ended up with was so phenomenal most people that see it want a copy.
