Beyond Exposure - A Landscape Workshop You Should Attend

Jay Patel, Colby Brown, and Varina Patel are hosting a two day workshop in Sunnyvale, Calif., on Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15, 2012.

I met Colby Brown on Google+ several months ago and fell in love with his work.  Its simply amazing how powerful of an image one can create with a valley, a river, or a mountain range.  Surely every photographer has heard of the great Ansel Adams before.  Its almost as if these photographers are able to capture a portrait of the environment.  A little hippie talk, but its true.

So as a photojournalist whose work largely revolves around people, action, and emotion, why will I be attending a landscape workshop?  Because I always want to learn.  If I can pick up three new tricks to add to my bag, I will be happy.  Not to mention networking is always a plus and so is surrounding yourself with great talent.

The real reason why I will be attending Beyond Exposure is because I love the outdoors.  I love backpacking and I love taking pictures of the views I encounter.  City life is great but nothing beats a climb to a mountain peak.  I don't shoot landscapes regularly, therefore my landscape photos lack in quality and aesthetics.  I hope Beyond Exposure will kickstart a new dimension into my landscape photography.

I hope to see you at Beyond Exposure.  If you do attend, lets get lunch together.

Date: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, April 14-15, 2012.
Location: Country Inn & Suites, 1300 Cheaspeake Terrace, Sunnyvale, Calif. 94089
Price: $127.50 before March 31, $150 after.
