WSP 190 — California Coastal Photography: From Point Lobos to Big Sur
This workshop begins with a class meeting on the Stanford campus, where we will cover field session logistics and outdoor photography skills, including understanding light, modifying light with reflectors and flash, lens selection from wide-angle to telephoto to macro, effective composition, and digital tools. In the weekend field sessions, we will sharpen our photographic skills at the famed tide pools of Point Lobos and at spots along the dramatic Highway 1 coastline between Carmel and Big Sur. With a thoughtful blend of guided and independent photography carefully choreographed with the low tides to allow for macro and wide-angle opportunities, this workshop will offer valuable resources for the novice and experienced photographer alike. After the field sessions, we will have a final class meeting to review student work.
This workshop is for students of all levels, although some
prior experience with photography and computers is
expected. A digital camera, preferably a DSLR, is required.
Transportation, lodging, meals, and park entry costs will be the responsibility of the student. Tuition discounts are not available.
