Autumn Landscape Photography
This workshop is for the serious and semi-serious landscape photographer. Telluride’s surroundings are the most spectacular autumn color extravaganza in the four corners region. This in depth workshop will involve morning and evening location shooting, exposure techniques and in-depth critiques of the images shot by each student. Critiques will address important topics such as composition, light direction and quality, visual impact, mood and more. This workshop is for advanced beginner and intermediate photographers. Must have working knowledge of your camera and laptop. Memphis Barbree, a fine art and documentary photographer, has taught at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, Brown Ledge in Vermont, The Compelling Image online photography school and private mentorships. She is a mostly self-taught photographer, who honed her skills in an intensive mentorship with George DeWolfe, known for his classical, contemplative black and white imagery. She has photographed domestically and abroad, alternately embracing conservation photography, disaster documentary and the classical black and white landscape. Consistent in her work is a meditative stillness and a deep understanding and respect for the rhythms and patterns of nature. Recent projects include the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, HH Dali Lama and the Tibetan people living in exile in Dharamsala, India. She is currently finishing work on a collection of photographs and writings from a 3-month solo odyssey across the United States Gulf Coast, that delves into the rich, yet fragile Gulf of Mexico coastline in relation to the Deep Water Horizon oil well disaster. Her work has shown in public, museum, and private spaces around the United States and is held in many private collections and The New Mexico History Museum.
