Watch Extraction and Close-ups in Nelson Ghost Town

Learn how to capture pieces of history and take a walk through time. Join Bill Fortney in Nelson, Nevada, a fantastic ghost town that is just chock-full of Americana. What’s Americana?

You’ll learn about all of Bill’s gear for this type of project, his philosophical approach to the subject matter, and then he walks you through each photographic setup as he makes a photograph. Bill wraps up the class with a look at his post-processing workflow for different types of images. watch course
