An Introduction to Landscape Photography Course Description

3 Credit Hours
Instructor: Kevin Johnson

While many people immediately associate landscape photography with Ansel Adams, this genre is actually much broader and nuanced than a simple definition. Students will learn the various forms of landscape photography, look at its history and examine the work of past and contemporary masters. Students will also explore their own vision by taking their own landscape photographs throughout the course culminating in a suite of their strongest images. Technical tips and tricks will be discussed, but they will not be the focus of this course.  A DSLR camera and tripod are recommended but not required.
