Witnessing the sunrise and sunset from the summit of an Adirondack mountain is an unforgettable experience. The views are never more stunning than in autumn as the reds, golds, and oranges spread out like a tapestry over the hills and valleys below. Fortunately, one needn’t hike the tallest mountains for the best views. Some of the most spectacular and iconic scenes within the Adirondacks are from the smaller and lesser-known peaks within the Lake Placid area.
After an initial orientation session on Friday afternoon we will spend the weekend in the field exploring and photographing the views from several of the smaller peaks of the Lake Placid and High Peaks region. The smaller peaks obviously require far less effort and time to reach while allowing more time for photography. Note that this workshop will require participants to have the ability and stamina for hikes of easy to moderate levels of difficulty. Most peaks we will visit are less than 1 mile to the top.
Field lessons will include tips and techniques on:
- nurturing your creativity
- seeing beyond conventional composition templates and fine tuning compositions
- learning to see in black-and-white
- using visual elements for effective communication
- working with your range of lenses, from wide angle to telephoto
Chris will also give indoor instructional sessions on:
- Expressing Your Vision
- Black and White Artistry
- Visual Design and Effective Compositions
- optimizing images in Lightroom and Photoshop
- converting images to black-and-white
- We will also have review sessions of participants’ images shot during the workshop.
Other Considerations This workshop will require hiking up steep and hilly terrain. Participants MUST be in good physical shape and able to climb and descend moderate to steep inclines. They should wear sturdy boots and use caution on slippery and rocky slopes.
