Landscape photography allows us to immerse ourselves in the environment around us. It makes us look at things and see things differently. It gives us a reason to go out and enjoy more sunrises and sunsets. We get to see how the light dances across the landscape and how a scene can change with the time of day. This is a class for those who want to learn how to use their cameras to capture that beauty around them. You will learn what is involved to make a good landscape photograph from both a technical and a creative perspective. Whether it’s for upcoming travel or you just want to take your landscape photography to the next level, this class will help you be more prepared and capture the photograph you visualized.

Topics include:
  • What makes a good landscape photograph
  • Recommended gear
  • Focusing and depth of field
  • Compositions that work
  • Tips on getting a good exposure
  • Planning for success

The final session will also include a critique of students' landscape photographs.

You should come to this class with a basic understanding of exposure. If you’re still shooting on Auto or simply want a great refresher, consider registering for Exposure Basics: Shooting in Manual Mode.
