Find new avenues for creative expression as you explore the mysteries of the natural world. Through a combination of lectures, image and portfolio reviews, demonstrations, discussions, and photographing in the field, you’ll learn how to better appreciate the wonder in the natural landscape all around you, and to learn tips and techniques necessary to capture it in your photographs.
You’ll explore intimate details of the landscape and learn how to capture natural processes such as tides and winds. You’ll have the opportunity to photograph the night sky and, on the other end of the spectrum, you’ll be able to capture smaller aspects of nature.
Discovery and experimentation are at the heart of this workshop. You’ll find joy in discovering landscape in new and creatively exciting ways.
Participants may work in any medium and in color or black & white.
Class will typically meet via Zoom from 9 am Eastern – noon and 1:30-5 pm on each of the Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays.
