Dramatic Shoreline Photography

Update:  The Point Reyes Lighthouse will now be turned on for a special sunset to nighttime photography session just for this class. 

Full moon at sunset, low tide at sunrise: These and other special conditions occurring this weekend will allow you to photograph some of the seashore's most beautiful landscapes at their very best. This class combines several guided field trips with classroom sessions where we'll review the fundamentals of good composition, discuss techniques for seeing with fresh eyes, and talk about digital capture and image enhancement, using filters, and how to work with the sun, moon, tides, and weather to get the best from any landscape location. We'll also review some of your photos from the weekend to see what worked and what didn't. This will be a full weekend, but the pace will be leisurely. The goal is to leave you enlightened but not exhausted. You can work with any digital or film camera provided it allows manual control of focus, aperture, and shutter speed, and you are already thoroughly familiar with its operation. Accommodations included at the Historic Lifeboat Station.

      Hi Bo - This class is also listed on our website, so many people signup who are not a part of MeetUp - and therefore aren't reflected on this page.

    Has anyone (other than myself) expressed any interest in this session? I signed up for the one in May that was cancelled. Here's hoping enough sign up for this one.

      Hi Ken - Sorry about the previous class being cancelled. This class is a go, there are only 4 spots left before it's sold out.
