Tips and Techniques for Better Landscape & Nature Photography



New York’s Adirondack region is the largest protected landscape area east of the Mississippi River.  Less than 5 hours from New York City and Boston, it is a hidden gem for nature photographers.  This program will focus on photographing accessible areas of the Adirondacks. It covers the basics of landscape photography including equipment needs and shooting techniques.  An introduction to specialized landscape processing techniques will also be covered.
