COVID 19 Concerns – Distance Learning via Zoom:
Due to the recent coronavirus outbreak, this course will be moved to an online/distance learning format. Students will be learning via Zoom conference calling software/application.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has encouraged residents in our nation to practice social distancing. We will closely monitor their advice and we suggest you do the same.
Thank you for you understanding. Be safe, and be well.
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 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 (no experience required).
Please bring your DSLR or mirrorless camera with (bring your instruction manual!), a laptop or mobile editing device (not required), and a method of taking notes. There will be no field shoot during this workshop; our time will be spent entirely in-classroom with a break for lunch. Have challenging files/images? Bring them to work on (DNG/RAW) or follow along using sample images provided by the instructor.
Please email Michael E. Gordon with any questions about this workshop (info@Michael-Gordon.com).
