Great landscape photography comes down to great light and a great plan, regardless of the imagecapture device you choose. Photographs are not found, they are created. In this course, you will learn the basic concepts of landscape photography and how to apply them to the image-capture device of your choosing.

This course is open to all photographers, regardless of experience or digital capture device, but it is tailored to the beginner who is looking to jump into landscape photography, or the general photographer looking for a new challenge. Not only will we cover the basic landscape principles of composition, camera settings, visualization, and personal vision, but we will also examine the array of photography apps you can use to plan and execute your landscape photography. Students will be responsible for creating and sharing their work during two classroom reviews. You will be exposed to a broad overview of the landscape photography genre, and leave with a better understanding of the concepts, tools, and strategies to create beautiful landscape photographs on your own.

The course will not focus on individual cameras or brands, so students will be responsible for understanding their own equipment. The instructor will use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Apple’s Photos program to process images, but students may use any image-processing software. Field trip transportation will be the responsibility of the student.
