The coastline of San Mateo County is one of the most beautiful stretches of land and sea anywhere. From eroded, rocky shorelines, to cliffs, long beaches, redwood forests and small towns, this coast is complex and varied. We'll spend the day roaming the coast and mountain roads, stopping at state parks, county parks and checking out the lunch options along the way.
The workshop will be a dynamic combination of a traditional landscape photography workshop while diving deep into the digital age. Technical and aesthetic considerations will be discussed in detail. Our concentration will be on controlling your camera's operation to achieve your desired technical results, while building composition and visual skills to make the photograph what you want it to be. Digital exposure and dynamic range, composition, emotion and amazement-all will be part of our 2-day excursion into the evolving world of digital photography.
Day 1 will be fieldwork at various locations with intensive presentations and assistance. Day 2 will be back in the field putting into practice lessons learned during the previous day. The workshop will run from 9am to 5pm. You will be responsible for your own transportation. Lunch stops will also be pre-arranged but are not included in the fee.
Some BetterLight and possibly Dicomed Scanning camera inserts for 4x5 view cameras will be available for use. Participants who want to use the scanning cameras will have to supply their own 4x5 camera and laptop and give us one month's notice.
Explorers just wanting to use film, but anxious to learn the ropes, are also welcome.
