Have you ever returned from a trip, looked at all of the photos you took and wondered where to start with organizing them? How do you put them into a cohesive story that your friends and family will appreciate? How do you prepare for that organizing and presentation when you are out in the field? How do you create a written story around the photos? And what options are available for presenting the photos into a story? 

Photos are worth a thousand words, so the saying goes. This course will introduce photographers of all levels to the world of journaling to accompany their photos. We will go over the basics of photographing wildlife, landscapes, and wildflowers in Rocky Mountain National Park as part of a story. We will go out into the field to capture a story or two along Trail Ridge Road and in the Kawaneechee Valley. Then we will download, edit, and print out our photos and start enhancing the story with words. Participants will walk away with a bound copy of their story/stories.  Bighorn_ram_86Bighorn_ram_86A bighorn ram (Ovis canadensis) poses along a ridge in the high altitude of Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
