Photo Courses & Workshops
A different approach
So you want to learn more about your camera? And not just learn about all that your camera can do, but truly understand all of the things it can do? Not only will I provide a foundation of understanding for all those settings on your camera through my basic photo course, but I will provide the opportunity for you to retain your new-found knowledge and continue enhancing your camera skills through monthly workshops.
Let's face it, if we don't practice a newly learned skill, we will likely forget it. This is where my approach differs from other photo courses! Along with my Camera Basics course, below, I'm offering monthly workshops that will provide the opportunity to practice your skills. Only attendees of my Camera Basics course will be allowed to participate in the monthly workshops.
Camera Basics, Understanding Exposure
Understanding camera operations and exposure to achieve better photographs.
The course focuses on camera fundamentals and explores the components of a proper exposure. Each attendee will receive a workbook that can also be used for quick reference will out shooting. Course will consist of indoor instruction and, if time / weather permit, some outside session time will also take place. Lunch is also provided! For more information, view the available course below.
Course attendees should have a digital SLR camera (one that excepts interchangeable lenses) or be aspiring to purchase one.
These monthly get-togethers are for anyone that has previously taken the Camera Basics workshop.
Think of the monthly workshops as mini sessions (1 to 2 hours) that provide the opportunity to practice your newly learned camera knowledge with confidence. Along with a refresher of what was learned during the Camera Basics Course, additional topics will be explored as it fits the needs of attendees. Possible workshops topics include outside and inside settings such as photography with lots of snow, indoor sports, better photos of family, getting better wildlife photos, and more! The monthly outings will be scheduled at least two months in advanced.
Currently courses are being held in Pinedale, Wyoming and workshops are planned for Pinedale and the surrounding area. Locations may expand regionally depending on intrest.

About the instructor
Delsa has been photographing landscapes and hidden views of nature in western Wyoming as long as she can remember, always finding new and refreshing ways of sharing her experience with others through her images. Photography became a strong
passion for her early on and has remained an integral part of her life. Not long after graduating collage with a photography degree, Delsa began working as a photojournalist and would continue being a familiar face in the community, camera in hand, as she photographed a variety of events, from sports to 100-year-old birthday parties. She also filled her spare time with portraiture work which would include fleeting wedding moments, key phases of life through senior photos and more. After nearly a decade spent photographing for local newspapers, Delsa wanted to focus more on her personal photography passion: landscape and nature images. Her business, Reflections of the Winds would continue to grow to a regionally recognized source for fine art landscape and nature images depicting intimate scenes of the natural.
Besides the countless images she has captured, depicting views of nature that are considered tradition landscape photography, Delsa has recently been gaining a reputation for producing stunning contemporary images of everyday landscapes, re-defining what landscape photography can be. Delsa has showcased her work through regional galleries and exhibits as well as regional street fairs. Her work has also been included in juried exhibits, regionally and nationally.
She has seen the photography industry change from film to digital but strongly believes that the same fundamentals are still key to taking great photographs. Although she is well versed with digital file management and manipulation, she says photography starts with the understanding of the camera and exposure. “No matter what digital process might be involved to achieve a final image in today’s world, it needs to start in the camera. To achieve better photos, it’s important to take better photos in camera.”
