Well, we’ve made it through ten weeks of outdoor photography tips together. I really appreciate all of you who have taken the time to watch this series, submit photos, and send me e-mails. I have had a lot of fun and even learned a few things myself! This week’s video encourages you to “participate in the landscape” to make better pictures, and hopefully it will give you another dose of inspiration to get you out there and have fun with your camera.

This week’s assignment is easy – simply post your best shot from this year. No rules, no need to follow any of my techniques – just show off!

Post your shot to our on-line Flickr Group before Wednesday, April 25th.  On Thursday, April 26th, I’ll select one photo to critique and mail a copy of The AMC Guide to Outdoor Digital Photography to the photographer.

On a side note, I’ve added a new workshop to my 2012 schedule: Summer in Vermont – Portfolio Builder Workshop, August 17-20 in East Burke, Vermont. We’ll be shooting both landscape scenes and adventure shots with models who hike, bike, and go fishing for us. Should be a great way to get a variety of images in a short time.

Thanks for watching, and have fun!

    Hi Jerry,
    unfortunately the last tip is arrived. I liked very much to see your weekly videos and I try to take your advice every time I go out on the field.
    If you wanted to carry out another plan like this on your website, I’d follow it for sure ( I hope you really make it ).
    Grazie

    Jerry,
    I have your book and find it is an excellent resource. I will certainly purchase any others that you offer. But I have to tell you that I enjoyed and learned so much from your video series. It made your book come alive! Imagine my disappointment this morning when I saw that this is the final one! I hope there will be other series.

    I would love to take one of your workshops. I wanted to attend your workshop down the Cape but just couldn’t make it work. Do you ever offer any in the south coast area of MA or RI? We have beautiful coastlines too!

    • Thanks for the kind words Kathy – I’m glad you’re finding my book and the videos helpful! I’m sure I’ll make some more videos in the future, and I’ll be asking my mailing list for suggestions soon. As for holding a workshop in your area – I’m always looking for new destinations, so you never know. I think Newport or Block Island would be fun places to hold a workshop.

      • Kathy A. says:

        Yes, Newport or Block Island would be great! As for future video series, something on post processing with Lightroom would be helpful. I have Lightroom 3 and have managed to figure out some basics but I know it can do so much more. Thanks for giving this some consideration!

    Jerry,

    Enjoyed meeting you in Sturbridge last week — your photos inspired all of us.
    Just ordered the book, and look forward to staying on your listserve for lots of tips!

  4. Jerry,

    I really enjoyed this video tutorial series and learned many good techniques to enhance my photography. You are to be commended for your dedication to your profession and for your willingness to share your knowledge with others. As do many I, too, will look forward to future instructive videos.

    As for workshops, there are also some interesting landscape opportunities west of the Appalachians! 🙂

    • Thanks Jim! East of the Appalachians? What’s out there? I expect I’ll lead some trips out in the Rockies and desert Southwest someday. For now, I’m content to stay close to home and the family.

    Hi Jerry

    enjoyed these video lectures.it was fun and it made me get out too
    to practice despite the uncooperative weather at times.

    since you know some of my work already , which ND filter would you suggest i get 6 stop , 8 or 10?

    regards
    gail

    • Hi Gail,

      10 is probably too much, if it’s your only ND filter. I’d go with 6 or 8, and I’m leaning towards 6 as a first choice. That should slow things down plenty for most scenes.

    Really enjoyed this series!

    I am inspired by your process.

    Thanks again!
