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 landscape artists and photographers, we will discuss the compelling use of natural and adjusted light, focal length lenses, macro photography, the daytime use of long shutter speeds using neutral density filters, and other useful hints for our workshop. As we explore 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 course 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 may be helpful but is not required. All cameras, including mobile devices, are welcome, although a DSLR-type camera may be more versatile. Field trip transportation will be the responsibility of the student.
