future grads, How exciting, we get to learn and 'work' in Yosemite for two or
We will meet at the cafeteria at the Yosemite Falls Lodge. Itís just to the left of the lobby. In case anyone gets lost, Michaelís cell is 858.245.0485
Most cell phones worked in the valley, to some extent, in the past.
will start at the Cafeteria too, at 8 a.m. sharp. We can go over photos off you
notebooks if you worked on your images the night before.
These pages tell you what to bring and the dayís structure, etc. (although some references are for San Diego) link is here: http://www.seewald.com/material_list.htm
Day I: don't forget to bring AT LEAST three or
four photos you have made.
forget to do the prep work for the class this page calls for,
the class will be so much more rewarding if you
do so AND it will be a courtesy to the other students whom have done
so. The critique forms keep coming back with statements that Michaelsí having to
cover a lot of the basics with those that had not read it was disconcerting to
them, so please read them. Michael has suggestions on what to bring, i.e. extras
for your cameras that will greatly enhance your images, etc.. The 'Day II' link
is here, ignore the class locations of course, it was written for the San Diego

It can be quite rainy/snowy certain times of year. And thatís cool, weather is the helpful condition that makes for great shots- last year we had sun, rain, and snow all in four days. So, it could be something to deal with. Bring rain gear, a large umbrella and warmer clothes/ wool hat, gloves, socks- layer up (Michael brings long underwear, top and bottom), cause if you are warm you are a happy camper (artist).
Any problems or questions after reading these please let us know. This is going to be a great class and time to create.
