A Deep Dive Into Compositions - Little Dell Reservoir - 9:30 am - 2 hours
Composition and framing are what make an image interesting or not. A generic photo of a dog might be cute but probably not print and put on the wall-worthy. But if you change the perspective, get that tight shot where you can look into the eyes of the dog, then the image is probably a lot more interesting. When we talk about interest in an image, we talk about the amount of time you can hold a viewer's eyes. This might be because the image creates some sort of emotion or maybe the level of detail in the subject makes the viewer feel like you are there.
Within the composition, we will talk about the rule of thirds and how to use it. We will focus on leading lines and vectors. Framing with forest photography for example is huge. A large portion of the time will be focused on landscape applications but if someone has an interest in portraiture, we can work on that as well.

Wildlife, Landscape and Stream Photography - Donut Falls Hike - 9:30 am - 3 hours
For this meet up we will focus on wildlife, landscape, and stream photography. We will cover the basics of each along the way. If we happen to encounter more wildlife the class might lean a bit in that direction but will depend on what we find. The things that make a wildlife image interesting also apply to landscape and stream photography. It is all about composition and knowing how to master your camera. Together we will work on technique, fundamental camera settings, and any other questions that you may have with regards to nature photography. We should be there and back again in the 3 hours.
Hiking level fitness and hiking gear required due to terrain.
