Are you a fan of steam locomotives? Imagine chasing these locomotives through the magnificent New Mexico and Colorado mountains in the fall!
Ken Sklute will make this a reality. Ken has captured some of Americas most beautiful steam locomotives as they make their way through the best locations. In order to highlight these powerful machines Ken will share with you his methods for being in the right place at the right time with the correct camera and lens.
Whether you are a seasoned pro or just beginning your photographic journey, you will grow and go away with remarkable imagery! Autumn in the picturesque mountains will be the landscape for our capturing one of the four steam locomotives beginning in the morning as the engine pulls out of the barn, warms up, takes on coal and then water before it attaches to the period correct cars that it will pull up the hill.
You need not be a rail fan to be excited by the sounds and sights of this 100+ year old railroad that covers 64 beautiful miles and reaches over 10,000 feet in altitude as it reaches the Cumbres Pass.
I have been and scouted the absolute best locations along the route for you to capture remarkable images! I will be alongside you to offer as much in-the-field instruction that you might need.
Each evening following dinner we will view and provide a critique of your images in order to potentially improve your skills each day!

• Image pre-visualization
• Location determination
• Lens selection
• Depth of field
• Image processing in Lightroom
• Image enhancement in Photoshop
