Join us on Monday May 14th for Joe LeFevre's "25 Field Tips to Improve Your Landscape and Nature Photographs"

**This program will be in the 6th floor common area, not in our regular room

Legendary landscape photographer Ansel Adams once said, "The landscape is possibly the most difficult subject material to work with; it offers the minimum control of point of view in reference to composition and confronts the photographer with extremes of light and shadow..." In this program I will present 25 field tips to help you overcome the inherent challenges in producing effective landscape and nature photographs.
Examples include:
• The importance of working close to home
• Scouting potential locations and returning at a favorable time
• Matching the available light with an appropriate landscape
• Shooting a time-lapse sequence.

Please join Joe for an engaging and educational session as he demystifies the process of producing dynamic landscape images.
