This High Country guided tour will take you to the lesser known locations. A sunrise or sunset is most likely on tap for us. While on location, we'll enjoy breathtaking views while we cover composition and shooting technique. Following, we may jump down into a creek area to explore the water. Then we'll head to a computer where we'll cover Lightroom and Photoshop as deep as you want to go.
I always give my clients the flexibility to design the day as they wish and we'll cover anything you like. My goal is to ensure you leave with a great experience and the proper information to take your vision forward. After the Session, you'll have the knowledge and direction needed to accomplish your goals.
My "go to" software is Adobe Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC. We can dive into workflow as deep as you like. My Workflow is simple and easy to understand. We will also touch on some artistic techniques and how to add pop to your image. I know most 3rd party software well, so bring anything you have.
Topics we will cover include: Camera settings, shooting technique, basic and advanced Composition, angle of view, tone, color, reading the light, filters, monitor calibration, printing, Phone Apps and much, much more. The goal here is to ensure you are capturing what you need for an efficient and non-destructive workflow. An image review/critique is included in every session.
There will be moderate hiking to get to most of our shoot locations. We will cover the specifics when we speak and a location is decided.My favorite areas include Grandfather Mountain, Blue Ridge Parkway, Linville Gorge, Roan Mountain, Pisgah, Nantahala's and the Great Smokies. I am always up for a trip to these beautiful, target rich environments. I am also available for travel to a destination of your choosing.
I am currently a Nikon shooter(D810, D4s & D800), but familiar with most camera systems.
