Photography Workshop with Jon Mullen

4:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Sunday, Aug 11
Free and Open to the public, registration required.

Whether you are a beginning, intermediate, or a well-seasoned photographer, this workshop will offer you a chance to sharpen your outdoor photography skills. Lighter on technical detail, this class will focus on how to compose photographs that draw the viewer into and through the image. We’ll spend an hour or so discussing those concepts before heading out for a short evening hike to put your camera and legs to use. Our subject will be an overview of the beautiful Thompson Divide and the West Elks at sunset. The hike will be about 1.5 miles each way and largely off-trail. Please be prepared for a hike, with sturdy hiking shoes, poles (if you use them) and a headlamp for the way down.
