The Northwest College Photographic Communications program is offering an eight-week Outdoor Photography class this fall, with an additional section specifically designed for interested area residents.
The course, which takes place Aug. 28 through Oct. 16, includes a two-day trip into Sunlight Basin and Yellowstone National Park with an overnight stay at the A.L. Mickelson Field Station. The class meets for a scheduled lecture Wednesday evenings.
In addition to learning how to photograph wildlife and nature, course lectures will include information regarding photographic concepts of aesthetics, lighting and composition while tackling technical aspects with telephoto lenses and tripods set on uneven, rocky surfaces.
Photographic assignments include creating representations of humans and land, water, light and shadow, trees and a strong graphic.
This course features two sections—one for incoming freshman (3 credits) and a second for area residents (2 credits). No photographic experience is required, and equipment is available for check out for a fee.
