SNC Summer Workshop: Tahoe Digital Landscape Photography With Jerry Dodrill

This past month I did a five day workshop from June 27th thru July 1st in Tahoe at Sierra Nevada College. Jerry Dodrill taught the workshop which was focused on digital photography in the Tahoe landscape. It was refreshing to get a chance to use digital again since I've used black and white film almost exclusively for the past year. I learned quite a bit though, and in a number of different areas; from using my equipment effectively, to working in the field, and even how to get up at 3:30am to shoot at sunrise.

Here are some of the photos I came out with.

One of the best things I learned about was using my DSLR and an intervalometer to create a time lapse, which I did for my final project of the workshop. This was the final result:

I am very excited with how it turned out, but I mostly consider it a test run. I will be exploring time lapse work much more in the near future, possibly for my BFA even. I already have a few plans so expect to see more as a play around.
