What you will learn
The thought process for each individual image we shoot. It’s the next best thing to spending a few hours shooting alongside professional nature photographers in the field.
The camera, lenses, and special equipment we used for each photo in this book. This information is especially useful for those who want to capture high quality photos on your own.
The ND filter that will help reduce the amount of light that reaches your sensor when you are shooting. This special filter lets you use a higher shutter speed so you can capture the crashing waves with a silky and ethereal effect.
How to remove distracting elements from your images and shift the focus to the most interesting part of the scene. This is what separates mundane snapshots from award-winning fine-art photographs.
The GND filter you can use when you want to capture the sky in your seascape images. It reduces the overall dynamic range and allows you to capture all the vital details in the scene.
I used both Hyperlocal Distance techniques (for playa shots) and fast shutter techniques (for crashing surf) that I learned from The Ultimate Landscape Course. It was very helpful.
I have been trying to understand Hyperfocal Distance since I first picked up a camera about a year ago. I have had several people explain it to me, but I never understood it as well as I do after watching your tutorials. They are so clear and easy to understand.
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!
The Hyperfocal Distance Course is excellent and enlightening. It will definitely come in useful when I go to the Yading Nature Reserve in China next week on a photography trip.
Like all other educational material that you’ve produced, the Essential Filter Course is simply wonderful! You both have the gift for imparting knowledge in a simple and straightforward manner.
Their easy approach, pace, and personalities make the learning process much easier and enjoyable.
Essential Filters Course would have saved me from frustrating photos that were a result of using filters wrong or not understanding when and how to use them. Another great tutorial series from Jay & Varina.
Excellent training. I love the way you folks transmit your volumes of knowledge to us. Easy to learn and follow. Beautiful job.
I really enjoyed the Behind the Lens Course. It is the best of all the courses you’ve made.
I have tried many hyperfocal distance tutorials, but none explained so well as you did in The Ultimate Landscape Photography Course. Thanks again for your help!
I appreciate your combined abilities to teach me at my level on the photography learning curve.
All-in-all, The Essential Filters Course along with the others in this series, are the most informative and easy to learn instruction I have taken. I am a complete fan of Jay and Varina and love their instructions.
I have to say, you both are great teachers. I’ve learned so much from The Ultimate Landscape Photography & Focus courses I’ve purchased.
The Ultimate Landscape Photography Course is excellent… I look forward to being able to attend one of your courses or expeditions and working with you some day.
Your head is blown away by the amount of things you finally start to understand.
This is great! Been wanting to understand and apply Hyperfocal Distance in my photography.
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.
Varina and Jay will go the extra mile in making sure you understand the concepts.
Having Jay and Varina as instructors opens up a totally new perspective to Landscape photography.
My wife and I bought your video courses In Sharp Focus and Hyperfocal Distance. We loved them!!
It’s difficult to find the words to express how impressed I was with your Photoshop & photography knowledge and your body of work!
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?
