Great garden and landscape photographs are all around the urban environment. This walking course, which meets in both the field and the classroom, examines gardens, engineered landscapes, and the urban wilderness. In the field, we identify our interests and how best to define and capture them. We also discuss tricks that landscape and nature photographers use to create their images. Participants photograph with available light, exploring their own visions of the landscape with their preferred camera and lens, whether a DSLR, mirrorless camera, or smartphone. Following formal discussions, open picture-making time allows photographers to explore specific interests through the landscape.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.
