2014 Juror: Glenn Randall
Since 1979, Glenn Randall has combined his love of wilderness with a passion for photography. His intimate knowledge of atmospheric optics, weather, and the landscapes he photographs allows him to find the intersections of magical light and stunning subject matter that produce exceptional images. His work has been published in Audubon, Avalanche, Barnes & Noble, Brown Trout, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, and Runner’s World calendars and in Audubon, GEO, Outdoor Photographer, Outside, SKI, Los Angeles Times Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, New York Times Magazine, and many others. Prints of his fine-art landscape photographs can be found in several Colorado galleries. His photographs have also been used by many book publishers and corporate clients.
At age 56, he has accumulated over 1,100 photo credits, including 71 covers, and sold over 10,000 prints. He was the sole photographer for two books of landscape photographs, Rocky Mountain National Park Impressions and Colorado Wild & Beautiful, both published by Farcountry Press. He recently finished Sunrise from the Summit, a seven-year project in which he shot sunrise (or occasionally sunset) from the summit of all fifty-four Colorado Fourteeners.

Mastering Dramatic Light - 2014 Photo Seminar by Juror Glenn Randall
Saturday, April 26, 2014 8:30am-12:30pm
Lone Tree Arts Center Event Hall
Registration Fee: $35
Many of the most dramatic landscape photographs are taken in "high-voltage" light, with sunrise or sunset light stabbing through clouds and brilliantly spotlighting a distant peak or sandstone tower, leaving the equally important foreground in deep shadow. Capturing a full range of tones in such high-contrast situations, and reproducing them in a way our visual system considers natural, has challenged landscape photographers ever since photography was invented over 150 years ago. Our eyes can see a range of light intensities, from brightest highlight to darkest shadow, of about 10,000 to 1, but even good sensors can only capture a much smaller range, perhaps 500 to 1, and a print can only exhibit a range of about 50 to 1. This course will tackle this fundamental problem in a variety of ways. Students will learn how to photograph any landscape subject, in any light, and be confident that the final print will have the detail and tonality they want throughout the image. Register online or call the Lone Tree Arts Center Box Office at 720-509-1000. Pre-registration is required. Open to all levels of photographers.
