This three-day course is an intensive exploration of how the mind responds to a scene and how the eye can find the photographic composition ... intuitively.
With a complete disregard to the technical instruction, we focus purely on the visual challenges presented to each of us, compounded by the prejudices and existing mindsets that keep us from truly capturing the photos that place you in the same level of the masters, understanding what separates a photographer from an artist.
NOTE: As this course is intensive and with a curriculum that transcends both the technical and visual instruction found in most High Sierra Workshop offerings, students must be receptive to fresh, new thinking and approaches in the visual realm of photography, and willing to challenge their current ideals and mindsets. Flexibility in current thinking is a must for a student to embrace and implement this mode of thinking and shooting.
Technical proficiency must include the ability to comfortably and regularly shoot with ease in manual exposure, and a solid comprehension of the shutter speed, aperture and ISO scales along with their secondary effect aside from exposure control. Students should be knowledgeable and hold experience in using polarizer and neutral density filters.
Therefore, all students in this course MUST have either previously attended a High Sierra Workshops offering led by instructor Michael Mariant, or MUST provide a link to an online portfolio, a brief statement of intent, and have a brief conversation/web chat with the instructor PRIOR to class registration. It is imperative that all students are at the minimum technical experience level, while also being of the same mindset and acceptance to challenge their way of thinking, to graduate on to a new level of seeing in photography.
HSW alumni of previous courses and/or workshops led by Michael Mariant may register for this course at this time. If you have not previously attended a HSW workshop led by the instructor, please email the instructor a link to an online portfolio, a brief statement of intent, and contact info for a follow-up conversation PRIOR to registering for this course.
This course is strictly limited to five students to ensure an intimate environment, fostering the best learning opportunities possible.
Course Capacity: Minimum of 3 students, maximum of 5 students

WE WANT YOU TO LEARN …
Learn how to read the scene. Learn how to see the light. Learn how to make photographs that aren’t snapshots.
While most workshops simply take you around to predetermined sights, telling you where to point the camera and what the camera settings are for that shot, we here at High Sierra Workshops do things differently.
We have an integrated learning component for each and every location, from technical instruction to visual composition skills to theoretical applications … that just happens to be in a spectacular location!
