Michael J. Lee, M.Photog., CPP
The landscape is one of the most challenging and rewarding subjects a photographer can pursue. This course will cover how to be in the right place at the right time with the right tools, using proper exposure, the strongest composition, and the right processing to create beautiful images in almost any situation. Beginning with a lecture-based review of concepts, techniques, and tools, class will proceed into the ‘field’ for hands-on learning, and the day will culminate in fundamental approaches to the digital darkroom. This is designed for photographers with skill levels ranging from the advanced amateur to professionals working in other genres such as Portraiture who want to expand their skill sets; you should already have a command of basic photography concepts such as camera controls, exposure, and composition along with a strong familiarity with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Other Details: Lunch WILL be included. Also available upon request will be portfolio reviews, either within the class as a group or as a private consultation. This is an active class, and light hiking will be involved. Please inquire about special needs or accommodations - safety is most important.
Items to bring: Required: DSLR, multiple lenses, tripod, extra battery, memory card reader, laptop with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, note-taking materials. Strongly preferred in order of importance: neutral-density filter, polarizing filter, remote shutter release. Part of this class will be held outside, and participants should have appropriate footwear and outerwear for nearly any weather condition and potentially rocky, brushy or muddy terrain; more details on this will be sent upon registration.
