Hosted by: Peters Valley School of Craft
July 1-3, 2017
Layton, NJ

Instructor: Tim Jacobsen
Using tried and true compositional techniques, you will be given the opportunity to create a portfolio of work that captures the beauty and wonder of the natural landscape. Workshop participants will be given instruction about the importance of light quality, leading lines and framing. Discussions on understanding Depth-Of-Field, showing or stopping motion and creating High Dynamic Range images, as well as large scale panoramas will blend with a series of daily field trips to the surrounding woods, streams and meadows. Digital editing will be done with the Adobe Creative Suite of products, most specifically Adobe Photo, Adobe Bridge and Lightroom. Participants should have an understanding of manual camera controls and basic editing workflow techniques. A 35mm DSLR is preferred, as is a sturdy tripod. Peters Valley is located within the picturesque the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (National Park).
