This workshop is open to all photographers whether shooting large or small format black and white or color, traditional or digital! Lunches during the day will be provided by Lynn Radeka and Fred Newman, except for occasional indoor restaurant lunches, but each participant is expected to be self-sufficient with regards to breakfasts, dinners, and all indoor dining. Please inquire about any concerns or limitations.

For large format film photographers, Fred Newman would like to offer a copy of the BTZS Learning Special and one free BTZS Film Test (participant supplies the film for testing and pays for shipping). Also if any photographers want to learn about digital infrared photography prior to the workshop, Fred would be glad to give guidance and information.

Lynn and Fred will be reviewing each day's shoot on a laptop computer and commenting on possible image manipulations and improvements. Contrast masking (for photographers shooting film) will be discussed as well as other traditional developing/printing methods. Digital photographers will enjoy the array of interesting software programs and techniques we may be demonstrating as well, including focus stacking for extreme depth of field and HDR for controlling extreme contrast. More importantly, the workshop flow will be largely determined by the needs and desires of the workshop participants, ensuring a very enjoyable experience for everyone.

Lynn will be handing out durable viewing cards (an aid in visualizing compositions) to those shooting large format film. He and Fred will be assisting attendees in obtaining the best exposures and white balance settings using RAW format for those photographers shooting digital, and zone system methods, BTZS methods, previsualization, exposure, development, view camera controls and selection of filters to those photographers shooting traditional large format. All participants will be given a discount code for fine products from ProgreyUSA (world class filters and filter holders).

This photography workshop will also teach the use of contrast masking in your previsualization routine. This will help traditional photographers learn how to previsualize images with the intent of applying contrast masking (or other specialized darkroom procedures) to the final prints. Surprisingly, this often results in images being shot that otherwise might be passed up due to lack of local contrast on the scene or elements that aren't well separated from surrounding detail. The intended use of masking can alter the exposure and development given to the negative.

Tag-alongs are not allowed on this workshop except for spouses, which will be required to be self-sufficient. This workshop is limited to ten paid participants. Please see the signup details below.

About Lynn Radeka

Influenced in his early work by Ansel Adams and Wynn Bullock, Lynn Radeka’s professional photography career spans more than forty-five years. His love of the grand landscapes and intimate details of the American West was born on his first trip to Death Valley in 1966.

Lynn Radeka’s Black and White photography has been featured in eight National Park posters and several calendars including the calendar series Radeka: The American West and several ghost town calendars published by Browntrout publishers. In 1989 and 1990 he was commissioned to do the photography for five full-color books, resulting in a 2 year journey that took him through the back roads, historic places and ghost towns of the entire American West. Lynn also has the honor of being a featured photographer in the book publication "World's Top Photographers: Landscape" and has been published in B&W Magazine, View Camera Magazine and other photography publications.

Lynn Radeka currently teaches workshops in Death Valley and Canyonlands National Parks, and Contrast Masking workshops in his home darkroom. He is the producer and co-author of the Contrast Masking Kit - a technical manual for traditional film-based photographers. Lynn feels completely at home using a 4x5 view camera for his film-based work and more recently a Sony A7R mirrorless camera for his digital work.
