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 Radekas 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 Radekas 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.
