Multicoloured rhyolite mountains in Landmannalaugar region of Iceland


In the first class (May 11, 2019), you will gain necessary knowledge and skills to understand how digital cameras see and record light, how to visualize and compose your images, and master creative use of lenses and camera settings to control perspective and depth of field. We will stress the importance of recognizing and using light, learn to simplify and isolate, and how to capture the decisive moment.

We will take a two-week break from indoor classes, and take advantage of the Victoria Day long weekend to practice our newly acquired skills.

In the second class (May 25, 2019), we will help you prepare to take authentic and more meaningful travel photographs. We will discuss gear and how to pack for the journey. We will go over trip planning and preparations to help you enjoy the time spent in new, often unfamiliar places. The course will teach you how to return home with compelling photography stories rather than random postcard snapshots.

We will complete the course by covering the essentials of digital image workflow, editing, image backup and preparing images for print or social media use.

Students are required to have access to a digital camera with a zoom lens, and be familiar with basic operations.
