Intro to Nature & Landscape Photography: Great Falls National Park

During this session, I will introduce you to digital SLR photography before we capture the sunset at Great Falls National Park. We will be shooting from the Maryland side, as it offers alternative views and pleasing light at dusk.

Topics will include:
1) Introduction to photography theory
2) Introduction to the camera
3) Basic shooting techniques
4) Practice in the field!

What you will need to bring:

1) A digital SLR camera (not a hard requirement; any camera will do) and lenses
2) A tripod (if you have one)
5) A flashlight, as we will be walking out of the park a little past sunset

I will keep the amount of participants limited such to provide ample opportunity for all to learn.

I now require full payment only to limit no-shows. If you indicate within 48 hours that you will not be joining, I will refund your payment.

Hope to see you there!

    I am very excited to go to this meetup. I have been wanting to learn more about learning how to work my camera outside. I am going to vegas at the end of April an I think I will be able to get some great pictures if I can learn to use my camera.

    This was a great experience. Navin took some of the complexities out of technical photography and helped me personally to see more of the artistic aspects. Highly recommended.

    This is the first meetup I have attended although not the first DC area photo class and I found Navin to be a great instructor. Navin did an excellent job of explaining the technical issues I was having in such a way that I (a very NON--technical person) understood clearly. I made the corrections and saw the improvements in the next shot. Mother Nature didn't cooperate with stunning colors, but there is no way Navin can control that. I will definitely be signing up for more meet-ups with Navin.

    Navin, what lens do you recommend? I am unsure whether a long lens like a Nikon[masked] f2.8 or a wide angle? Or, should I bring my "collection?"
