Northern Landscapes Photography

Course Overview

The countdown to the summer solstice snaps into mind at the beginning of June. It's a fresh time of the year when suddenly the world smells like summer. The stunning landscape of Cook County, with its miles of wilderness and incomparable Lake Superior views starts to come alive with incandescent summer greens and haunting morning mists. In this workshop, we'll concentrate on learning compositional techniques to capture the budding summer season. Students will learn how to select simple compositional elements, how to balance those elements and create relationships between them. The instructor uses a unique approach to composition that will require some poetic practice, but will provide excellent results.
