Point Reyes: Intimate Details and Personal Visions; A 1-Day Photo Workshop Class on January 28, 2017

If you’re located in or around Northern California, I have a great 1-Day photo workshop class called “Point Reyes: Intimate Details and Personal Vision” that I’ll be teaching on January 28th. This class is run by the non-profit Point Reyes National Seashore Association. To register, or get more information, click the link above to visit the PRNSA Field Institute web site. I hope to see some of you there.

This special class is for those photographers who want to leave the grand landscapes behind and train their eyes and cameras on the smaller, more intimate details of the world around us. This class uses both field and classroom presentations designed to hone and refine how to shoot evocative and compelling photos that highlight our personal connection to a subject, whether it’s something natural or man-made. Intimate and detailed doesn’t just mean small, tiny, or close-up macro photos.

We will also explore how we use our vision to recognize and isolate important aspects of larger scenes and locations. Focus on the field sessions will be on taking a visual assessment of subjects and lighting conditions, looking for subtle subjects, and how best to photographically capture those scenes through composition, use of camera settings, and lens selection.

This class is open to anyone using any type of camera. While we will talk some about equipment, the goal in the field will be learning how to photographically recognize and isolate details. If you have any questions, please let me know. By the way, most of the images appearing on this page were shot with a camera that could fit in my pocket; either a Sony RX100mIII or my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone. 🙂
