Landscape Photography Classes

The Art of Composition

Rule of thirds, leading lines, rule of odds, fibonacci spiral, oh my! In landscape photography, composition is driven by where the photographer places the camera. The trees are where they are: as are the mountains, flowers, rivers, lakes, sky. So how does one choose where to point the camera? In this class, through a combination of classroom and field sessions, we will explore a variety of strategies for approaching composition and making visually compelling images. Beginners through advanced photographers welcome! Lifelong Learning Center in Missoula | 9/13-10/4, Tuesdays, 6-8PM



Advanced Techniques for Landscape Photographers

Looking to take your landscape photography to the next level!? Then this class is for you! We will be exploring topics and techniques for maximizing the capabilities of your camera, post-processing and, of course, your imagination. This class will split its time between the classroom and the great outdoors. Topics covered will include manual mode, focus stacking, exposure blending, panorama creation, advanced Lightroom/Photoshop tools and, much, much more. A base understanding of your camera is recommended to make the most of this class. Lifelong Learning Center in Missoula | 9/15-10/13, Thursdays, 6-8PM


Fall Photography Workshop

In this workshop, we will explore the wonderful world of fall colors through our cameras!

Lightroom (and Photoshop!) for Landscapes

The goal of this class is simple: to get you excited about editing your landscape images! This class will cover a basic workflow in Lightroom (importing, organizing and developing); advanced editing tools in Lightroom (masking, color grading and calibration); and Photoshop tools (using layers, adjustments and blending) for making the most of your images.

Portfolio Review

Feeling stuck in your photography and hungry to grow? Then this is the class for you! We’ll tastefully explore our images together, as a group, and, in the process, explore a wide range of photography topics aimed at helping us grow as artists with cameras. The format of the class will provide room for each participant to share their favorite images, seek feedback from the group and for all of us to grow our visual acuity through the exposure to a diversity of images. Lifelong Learning Center in Missoula | 11/2-11/16, Wednesdays, 6-8:30PM
