What you'll learn in this nature photography class:

Nature and landscape photographs are much more than just pretty postcards when they are made by creatively engaged photographers who understand their motivations, their subjects, and their tools. During this one-day workshop, Michael E. Gordon will provide you with the knowledge and inspiration to help advance your craft and confidence in all creative aspects of nature and landscape photography.

This workshop is suitable for beginning to intermediate photographers and offers a unique blend of photography fundamentals, philosophy, and post-production editing using Lightroom and Photoshop (participants need not have prior experience but familiarity is helpful).Topics covered will include cameras (RAW capture and other vital settings); proper tripod and filter use; exposure (ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture); evaluating and shooting for ideal histogram and dynamic range; focusing and depth of field; creative composition and understanding light; and editing techniques using Lightroom and Photoshop (no experience required).

Please bring: 

  • a DSLR or mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses (bring your instruction manual!)
  • A laptop (not required)
  • a method of taking notes


Students should have a working knowledge of their camera and the ability to shoot in manual mode.
