NATURE & PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS


DAY 1: FUNDAMENTALS OF PHOTOGRAPHY I


Merging photography with our journey to discover the great outdoors. We start our fun discovery indoors with a very informative presentation and discussion. Next we venture outdoors, take a guided hike to take in the sites, then back to review our photos as a group. Further develop your photography skills by learning to use your camera in manual mode and explore symmetry, distance and angles, creating depth, close-ups, shutter speed, aperture, and/or ISO collaborate to shape great exposures. We will work together to study light, color, and compositional techniques to discover solid images. We will identify natural lighting circumstances to their full potential using your light meter and histogram. Prerequisites: Must provide own digital camera with shutter speed and aperture controls.
