This class is fun! We meet at a park in Santa Cruz with some great lighting and locations. After a 50-minute walk through the locations and an overview of the 5 techniques, we begin setting up and taking photos. The instructor and his assistant will circulate to help each student succeed. Who are the models? Each student may bring up to 4 friends or family members! (They are not invited to the lecture demonstration. Just have them relax somewhere else or arrive later.)

The goal of this class is for each student to produce a collection of remarkable natural light portrait images and use that knowledge for future sessions.

Landscape and Nature Photography

Video clip class summary: Landscape and Nature Photography

This workshop is a great way to join with like-minded photographers who want to advance their photography skills while exploring local redwood forests, wetlands, and rugged coastal environments. Your instructor, Jeffery Luhn, will be helping you sort out the challenges of composition, lens choice, exposure, and camera handling. Additional topics will include macro shooting, depth-of-field control, HDR (high dynamic range) and the use of polarizing filters.

We’ll begin by meeting at Henry Cowell Park in Felton and covering the essentials of shooting in forest, meadow and creek side locations. Then it’s up and over the hill to the Bonny Doon area for seascapes. After class we’ll have an optional debriefing at a Davenport roadhouse.

Important details: Some paths are uneven and steep so wear comfortable shoes for hiking. A sun hat is advisable. Bring a polarizing filter!
