During our exclusive, hands-on Ventura landscape photography workshop, you’ll work with two professional photographers.

This class is held in the “real world”, not in a classroom, where photographic concepts can be lost when you attempt to apply them in real situations. You will learn how to adapt to any photographic situation quickly to get the shot! Our Ventura landscape photography workshop will cover the grand landscape to close-in motion action, all will be explained simply and effectively.

We’ll explore the basics of Digital SLR Photography and how it applies to landscape photography in simple to understand terms and concepts. You will go home with a heightened understanding of how to work your camera and create stunning images.

All you need is a camera with interchangeable lenses, a sturdy tripod and a willingness to learn. We’ll do the rest to guide you on your journey of creative self discovery.

For the the duration of this class, we will explore the Ventura Beach area, capturing pictures and learning each of your camera’s basic menu functions. You will learn not to shoot in the Green or “P” program mode and more about the Manual, Aperture and Shutter priority settings and when and not to use them.

In the Ventura landscape photography workshop, you’ll learn what f-Stops are all about and how to construct landscapes from the ground up. You’ll learn the best creative exposures and see the results right away!

We will also touch on creative composition basics. You’ll learn how filters work (supplied examples if you don’t own any) and what types to apply them to landscapes for smoothing water effects to balancing exposures through the lens. All this will be covered, in addition to how to work with your tripod more effectively and why you need one.
