April 2015 Program Meeting
April 7, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Focus Program Meeting – Presentation is “Right Place At The Right Time” by Glenn Randall
Glenn Randall will present “The Right Place at the Right Time”, a lecture on scouting for great landscape photographs. It’s rarely productive to randomly select some trail and head out in the middle of the day in hopes of making a great photograph at the instant you find it. You generally have to scout: to walk and look, and walk and look some more, then return at the right time of day or night. Glenn finds he spends much more time scouting than he does behind the camera. As he puts it, “Great landscape photography is 1 percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration.”
Glenn’s talk will cover scouting techniques in the field as well as the use of the Photographer’s Ephemeris, Heavenly Opportunity, and Skygazer, three programs that help photographers plan where and when to go shoot. He’ll also discuss his favorite weather-forecasting site and the new Skyfire app, which attempts to forecast when there will be clouds in the sky that will light up at sunrise and sunset.
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 online at www.glennrandall.com and in Art Mart, on the Pearl St. Mall in Boulder, Colorado.
Many book publishers and corporate clients have also used his photographs. At age 57, he has accumulated over 1,200 photo credits, including 73 covers, and sold over 10,000 prints. He was the sole photographer for three books of landscape photographs, Rocky Mountain National Park Impressions, Colorado Wild & Beautiful, and Sunrise from the Summit: His latest book, First Light on Colorado’s Fourteeners will be available in April 2015 followed by another from publisher Rocky Nook entitled Mastering the Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography will be available later in the spring.
