Nature and Landscape Photography with Michael E. Gordon (Online Learning – One Session)
- November 20, 2021
9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Online Learning Class via Zoom
Nature and landscape photographs are much more than just pretty postcards when they are made by creatively engaged photographers who understand their motivations, their subjects, and their tools. During this one-day workshop, Michael E. Gordon will provide you with the knowledge and inspiration to help advance your craft and confidence in all creative aspects of nature and landscape photography.
This workshop is suitable for beginning to intermediate photographers and offers a unique blend of photography fundamentals, philosophy, and post-production editing using Lightroom and Photoshop (participants need not have prior experience with either software but familiarity is helpful). Topics covered will include cameras (RAW capture and other vital settings); proper tripod and filter use; exposure (ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture); evaluating and shooting for ideal histogram and dynamic range; focusing and depth of field; creative composition and understanding light; and editing techniques using Lightroom and Photoshop.
Please email Michael E. Gordon with any questions about this workshop (info@Michael-Gordon.com).
Michael E. Gordon ( https://www.michael-gordon.com/) is an award-winning fine art landscape photographer of unusual and overlooked natural landscapes of California and beyond. A lifelong student of nature and wilderness, Michael’s intimate relationship with the landscape yields photographs of great depth and clarity. He is best known for his black and white “Desert” series which, says Broughton Quarterly, portrays stunning ethereal beauty from terrain where others see only a bleak landscape.
