2019 Grand Teton Photography Workshop

The Grand Teton National Park for lack of better words is well... grand.  The peaks jut straight up out of a relatively flat area allowing for pristine views of the Grand Teton portion of the Rocky Mountains.  One of the most iconic images of the Tetons comes from Ansel Adams at the Snake River Overlook.  This image is one of many which have inspired photographers young and old.  Snake River Overlook is one of the many places we will visit as we chase the light.

How to Define your Subject using Depth of Field

DOF is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a photograph that appear reasonably sharp. Think of this area as the focal plane as well. Lenses can precisely focus on a given point. However, anything closer or further away from that point begins to leave the focal plane. This is how you get the nice blurry backgrounds you see in some photographs or the tack sharpness in others.
