MAY 18 & 19, 2013

This class is aimed at the beginning nature photographer.  It is designed to quickly push you up the learning curve by presenting the basic rules of nature photography that can dramatically improve your outdoor photographs.  The first day walks you through the fundamentals with lots of examples of how a simple application of a rule can result in a completely different and more attractive photo.  The second day (which is optional) will be a field day in Roxborough State Park where you can apply the concepts learned and see the results for yourself.  The course works for all kinds of cameras from point and shoots to more sophisticated digital single lens reflex cameras.  At the end of the two days, we think you will be pleased with how much you have learned.

Enrollment is limited to twenty so that everyone gets individual attention.  The cost is $40 for both the day of instruction as well as the field day.  There is no discount for skipping the field day.  You can sign up on the CMC website under the classes heading.

We are recommending the purchase of either of two books.  One is an e-book and the other one is hard copy book.

1.   The e-book is "The Landscape Photographer’s Guide:  Getting Started in Landscape Photography by Erik Stensland " and can be obtained at and using the promotional code CMC you will get 10% off the purchase price of this or any of his books.

2.   The conventional book is by John and Barbara Gerlach and is entitled "Digital Nature Photography: The Art and the Science."  It is available at many bookstores as well as from Amazon.

Questions can be directed to Andy Dolan or Frank Burzynski

Please join us.
