Digital cameras have changed how photographers approach the landscape. Up your landscape photography by learning to use multiple digital captures to create unlimited depth-of-field, extended dynamic range for better color and black-and-white photographs, and how to create and shoot panorama format landscapes. Instruction will also be provided in how to create super large files for large prints with pixel shifting capture, and an overview of long exposure landscape photography effects through the use of neutral density filters. We will spend one day in the classroom and a second half-day in the field applying these digital techniques with instructor guidance.
