Understanding composition and lighting, sunrise shoot including camera shooting techniques, Photoshop demonstrations, shooting and processing panoramas, and image review and critique are just a few techniques that will be offered during this course.
Following a thirty-year career as a California State Park Ranger, Bob Grace began working as a professional assignment photographer in 2000. His work has appeared in books, magazines, newspapers, and websites as well as in several prestigious exhibitions. During his years as a California State Park Ranger he developed his own personal sense of environmental place while gaining knowledge of local flora, fauna, and resource protection. He brings many levels of skill and experience photographing the natural and cultural world to his outdoor classroom.
