Introduction to Landscape Photography

This course is a general introduction to the topic of landscape photography. It is suitable for beginners to intermediate photographers or photographers experienced in other areas of photography looking to expand their photographic expertise and experience into landscape. Topics covered will include: basic camera settings; advice on shooting in the field; understanding light, vision and composition; strategies for finding and making a memorable landscape photograph. The course will include two field trips and reviews of participant photographs.
Pre-requisites and expectations of background knowledge
It is expected that participants have a basic understanding of how to use their camera and how to change the settings, so, it is important that participants have a copy of their camera manual with them during the course.
What you will need:
A camera with some level of manual control, i.e., the capability to override the fully automatic settings, is desirable so you can get the most from the technical aspects of the course. Most modern compact cameras, ‘bridge’ cameras, DSLRs or mirrorless cameras would be suitable. However, a significant proportion of this course deals with aesthetics of landscape photography so almost any camera will do.
Please note: A range of gear will be discussed during the course but there is NO expectation that participants will need to purchase or own anything other than an entry level camera to participate in this course.
Field trips:
Saturday 27 October Time TBA
Saturday 10 November Time TBA
Time & Date Thurs 6.30pm from 18th October
Fees 7x 2hr sessions - $151(including 2 x field trips)
