PHOTO 56 — Landscape Photography in Yosemite: A Field Workshop
Before the Yosemite excursion, we will meet twice on campus to cover the basics of landscape photography, drawing inspiration from the classic black-and-white works of Ansel Adams and the color photography of Galen Rowell. After the trip, we will meet two more times in the classroom to review student work from the weekend excursion.
