PHOTO 73 — Nature Photography at Jasper Ridge: A Field Workshop
We will begin with two on-campus meetings to cover the basics of nature photography. Using iconic examples from respected artists and photographers such as Ansel Adams, Eliot Porter, and Galen Rowell, we will discuss the compelling use of natural and adjusted light, focal length lenses, macro photography, and the daytime use of long shutter speeds using neutral density filters. While exploring Jasper Ridge’s serpentine foothills with our cameras, we will experiment with a variety of techniques to help evolve our personal vision. Two more classroom meetings will follow the field workshop to review and discuss our work.
This workshop is for students of all levels who wish to expand their shooting skills and develop their sense of photographic vision. Some prior experience with photography and computers is expected. A digital camera, preferably a DSLR, is required. Field trip transportation will be the responsibility of the student.
