Flower Impressions Photography Workshop
with Kathy Eyster
Saturday & Sunday
January 19 & 20, 2019
10am-4pm each day (with lunch break)
Move your flower pictures beyond records of successful blooms to impressions of color, form and light, using a variety of creative techniques with both cameras and software. Discover what happens with extremely shallow focus, intentional motion blur, and multiple exposures. Explore light by working with light boxes and windows in a simple studio set-up. Challenge yourself at a local botanical garden. Learn ways to take your photographs to a different level of expression with this class.
Requirements: Participants should be familiar with exposure and focus controls on their cameras and should own and bring their own tripods.
Limited to 12 students.
Non Member $190

In 1986 I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, to continue my career in technical writing at the university computing center. Just before this change of residence, my boss introduced me to 35mm photography because he thought I might enjoy the combination of technical and artistic skills. He was right!
I soon began taking camera classes, joined the Nevada Camera Club, and purchased my own 35mm camera in 1992. Since then I have mastered the techniques of landscape and macro photography using both film and digital cameras. In 1996 I retired from my position as a technical writer and moved to Montana to pursue photography.
At the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, I became Workshop Director in 2000. That same year the school launched its digital imaging program. I soon found myself assisting the best instructors in the field who came to present workshops in Missoula. While studying with Julieanne Kost, John Paul Caponigro, George DeWolfe, and Katrin Eismann.
I left the photography school after fifteen months to pursue my teaching and art independently. I continue to present digital imaging courses for the school and the local Adult Education program. In addition to teaching, I have written for Camera Arts magazine and served as technical editor of digital photography books. I also travel throughout the country to teach digital camera classes and photograph extensively in the spectacular surroundings of western Montana. I live in rural Montana.
