Do you wonder if you can take nature photos such as you’ve seen done by others? Do you want to improve your shots further? You can!
But where do you start and how do you do it? We’ll walk through the various genres of nature photography and give you practical suggestions on technique, settings, equipment, plus when to go out.
Different parts of our session should be worthwhile to the beginning, intermediate and advanced photographer. We won’t just be showing pretty pictures. This will be a high content, practical session although it still will be an overview given the time we’ll have. We’ll discuss:

Ansel Adams: Early Works
We all know that Ansel Adams was a giant in the field of landscape photography. Many viewers are familiar with Adams’ heroic, high-contrast prints from the 1970s. “Ansel Adams: Early Works” focuses on the artist’s masterful, less well-known small prints from the 1920s through 1950s. By capturing the power of nature, Ansel Adams changed our understanding of landscape photography, solidifying it as a legitimate form of modern art.
