I am an avid follower of Jay and Varina’s work. Their work really is superb. Their knowledge in the field of landscape photography is impeccable.
I advanced by leaps and bounds in both my photography skills and Photoshop skills. Varina and Jay are great teachers!
I love how they’ve broken down the course (Behind the Lens) into different subject areas. It makes it easier to recall the information in the field.
Varina is an exceptional teacher (I’ve experienced hundreds over the years and she is among the very best, if not at the top).
I congratulate Jay and Varina on an excellent course.
You offer an incredible photography learning experience. With two terrific instructors who are great to learn from, and fun to be with, I couldn’t ask for more.
Having Jay and Varina as instructors opens up a totally new perspective to Landscape photography.
…this course is excellent…I look forward to being able to attend one of your course or expeditions and working with you some day.
I have tried many hyperfocal distance tutorials, but none explained so well as you did… Thanks again for your help!
I really enjoyed the Behind the Lens course. It is the best of all the courses you’ve made.
How To Catch The Waves
Landscape photographers love to shoot beaches and coastlines. It’s an absolute pleasure. But just because we enjoy it doesn’t mean it’s easy.
You might ask, “What could be so hard about taking photos of the beach?”
There’s the sunlight, the chance of over-exposure, uncontrollable waves crashing into the rocks, your tripod sinking deep in the wet sand, salty mist messing up your lenses… and of course, the fact that you might be getting wet.
In this book, you’ll learn our best tips, tricks, and techniques so you can radically improve your photography skills when you’re shooting beautiful beaches and coastlines.
This is the second eBook in the wildly popular Workflow Series. This time, join Varina and Jay as they visit six stunning coastlines – from Bahia Honda in Florida to the Makawehi Lithified Cliffs in Hawaii! Coastlines are some of the most dynamic and beautiful places on earth. Join Varina and Jay as they discuss the challenges they face as they shoot. Examine the decisions they make in the field… and on the computer during processing. Take this opportunity to climb inside the mind of professional wilderness photographers.
The Vision – Varina and Jay invite you to join them in the field as they explain their thought processes and the challenges that arise in the field. You’ll find tips and suggestions for improving your own photography! This is the next best thing to learning on location!
The Process – Take a look at rarely seen un-processed images, and pick up tips and hints as the pros walk you through the process of preparing and finishing a photo!
The Result – When all is said and done, take a look at the finished product. Compare it to the original, scrutinize the changes that were made, and think about the decisions the photographer made in the field. Would you have done it the same way?
