Mono Basin fall photography by Robb Hirsch, Oct. 9
Mono Lake and the surrounding basin is a magnet for nature photographers. Professionals and amateurs alike are drawn to the unique, otherworldly landscapes, striking canyons, and the dynamic light often present. The abundant opportunities provide the perfect outdoor classroom to learn the fine art of landscape photography. All are invited to join professional photographer Robb Hirsch as he teaches participants the process of creating the strongest possible images. This is not designed as a “cookie cutter” workshop in which clients are pointed in a direction and told to shoot at f16 and one 25th of a second. The event will begin at 3 p.m. Friday and continue through Sunday. Topics to be covered include creating strong compositions, evaluating proper exposure, utilizing depth-of-field for maximum impact, pre-visualizing images, reading light to increase productivity and how to visually isolate a subject for more appealing images. This workshop is open to all levels of photographers. For more information or to register, visit www.monolake.org/visit/seminars or contact Elin Llung at the Mono Lake Committee at 760-647-6595 or elin@monolake.org.
