Manzanita Lake Guided hike with Tracy Salcedo
Nature Photography Workshop with Terry Nathan
Location: Manzanita Lake
In this two-day photography workshop, we will use Lassen Volcanic National Park’s stunning landscape and diversity of ecosystems to improve our skills making photographs. By combining in-class and hands-on photography experiences in the park, we will learn about compositional principles that will enable us to make more compelling photographs of wildflowers, geologic features, and grand mountain views. The workshop will consist of a two-hour in class presentation on the principles of lighting and composition, a five-hour hands-on field excursion, and a post photo-shoot critique session.
