Winter Week Long 2/22 – 2/26, 2010
If I had ordered the weather out of a Spiegel catalog it could not have been better. The week held a little of everything for photography, bright sunshine, rain, snow, overcast, you name it! And only one person signed up for the festivities. But Raphael and I knocked it out this past week and got a slew of tremendous photographs.
Raphael, not one to enjoy his picture being taken, waits at the wall at Tunnel View for The Shot.

Much of the weather this week was overcast, rain or snow. I decided to convert much of what we shot into black and white. I covered these conversion methods in Photoshop with Raphael.

Cloud's Rest from the Mirror Lake trail. We used polarizing filters which had the effect of diluting the moon in the sky. (Photo by workshop student Raphael)

You can do very unusual things with a super-wide lens. The 10mm captured both El Capitan and the Three Brothers from the Merced River (Photo by workshop student Raphael)
