Bill Helsel, Instructor

In Spring the Point Reyes landscape is alive with color, a treat for the eyes and soul. However, translating what we see and feel into beautiful photos can be a challenge. Join us for a weekend of expanding vision and practicing skills in capturing both intense and subtle color on subjects ranging from wildflowers to landscapes at locations including a huge private garden with exclusive access for this class, and beautiful Drakes Beach with a rare minus tide at sunrise. Our weekend will be divided between classroom and field sessions. In the classroom we'll review the fundamentals of good composition with lots examples, discuss techniques for seeing with fresh eyes, talk about digital capture and image enhancement techniques, films, and the creative use of filters. We'll also talk about working with different kinds of light and weather, the sun, moon, tides and seasons, plus good locations in the Pt. Reyes area. In our field sessions we'll take advantage of weather and tide conditions to get the best from several locations with Bill offering advice on subject matter and composition. Sunday will conclude with an optional late afternoon till sunset photo session. You can work with any digital or film camera provided it allows manual control of focus, aperture and shutter speed, and you are already thoroughly familiar with its operation. Accommodations included at the Clem Miller Environmental Education Center.
