Grant Teaching Landscape Astrophotography at Shooting the West in 2017

 

Let your craft support your vision

Imagine that you want to build a chair. You have a picture in your head of exactly what type of chair you want to build, and you can close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting in it.

Every chair starts out as raw lumber, so you head to the lumberyard, and buy some wood, and then you head over to your local wood shop, boards clutched in your arms, ready and raring to go to get into making your dream chair.

Arriving at the woodshop, you realize that you don’t really know how to use all the tools that you will need to make your chair, so your plans are sadly put on hold. In other words, you must first lean the craft of woodworking before you can achieve your vision of the chair.

Photography is no different. We can all see a landscape at sunset, and therefore we might have a vision of a fantastic photograph of an epic landscape that matches what we see with our eyes. But, until we learn the craft of photography - what to do with your “bucket of f-stops” - your vision remains just that - a vision.
