Nature and Landscape Photography with Michael E. Gordon (Online Learning)
- November 14, 2020
10:00 am - 4:00 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 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. During the Lightroom post-production segment, students will follow along and practice techniques with sample images provided by the instructor.
