Fall Photography Workshop through the Sierra Foothill Conservatory

Explore the world of landscape photography with nature photographer Mike Osborne. Learn to capture beautiful fall images of the celebrated Merced River Canyon. This class will be geared primarily toward inexperienced photographers although all experience levels and all types of cameras are welcome. We will concentrate mostly on looking at light, composition and exposure--those elements that contribute to taking better photos. Photoshop and other post capture computer processing programs will not be covered in this class. You are encouraged to bring your camera manuals with you as there are a bewildering number of camera models and they all work somewhat differently. Please review your camera manuals before the class. If you have (or can borrow) a tripod bring that as well. Sturdy shoes should be worn--we will be walking over loose rocks from the road down to the riverbank and walking on wet & slippery rocks . This class will not be strenuous but it will require walking over unstable and slippery terrain. If it is raining, bring rain gear and umbrellas. A Picnic Lunch will be included at this very special event.

Saturday Nov 8th 2008 - 8am to 2pm
$35 for members, $50 for non-members
Workshop limited to 12 participants
