Expanding Your Creativity at Mono Lake with Lewis Kemper

Mono Lake and the Eastern Sierra offer some of the best nature photography in North America. The Mono Lake Basin offers a diversity of landscapes unlike any other in the country. Spend from Monday afternoon through Friday’s sunrise with Lewis Kemper, as we work on creative techniques to take your photography to the next level. Lewis will talk about night photography, long exposure photography, HDR, panoramas, creative composition and the use of color in your images. This week is the week of New Moon, which means we will have very dark nights and wonderful views of the Milky Way. October is also the time of autumn color in this region and we will take full advantage of nature’s show.

This is class is for those that want to create more creative images of the natural landscape. It is a class for night owls! It will be an action packed, informative week that will jump start your photographic skills.
