Yellowstone Wildfires

A series of about 400 shots that I took while leading a group through the Park on Sept 26th, 2009.
The Arnica fire on the northwest side of Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone National Park has now burned 9,300 acres and has again required that the Grand Loop road be closed between West Thumb and the junction at Fishing Bridge Lake. The park said the road will be closed indefinitely due to fire activity and hazardous snags falling across the road.

Ken Griffey Jr. and his mother dropped by the gallery recently. He has
an interest in photography and has some great trips planned with his
family where he can put that interest to good use. Both he and his
mother were extremely engaging, personable, and funny, utterly without
affectation or celebrity airs. I hope we have a chance to go out to
shoot someday.

Working on your own computer in class and a Wacom graphics tablet, you learn how to:

* Correct color casts
* Add beautiful blurs
* Selectively sharpen
* Dodge and burn
* Convert photos to rich black and whites
* Create painting effects
* Tone down noise
* Master layer masks
* Use blend modes
* Retouch Portraits – make the eyes pop, whiten teeth, soften wrinkles, smooth the skin and more.

The class will also focus on many of the best third-party filters available for Photoshop and cover creating useful actions to speed up your workflow. We will provide trial versions of the software.

Scott brings unmatched enthusiasm to his classes. He regularly teaches at the UCLA extension, leads photo trips for Julia Dean, and is represented by Getty and Corbis.

If you want a broad introduction to enhancing photographs in Photoshop, I recommend two day intensive class. It will be fun.
