Riverside, CA, February 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- California photographer Jesús Manuel Mena Garza will offer a Landscape Photography Workshop at the University of Riverside, Extension. The workshop is for photographers of all levels and is scheduled for April 10 through April 25, 2009
Garza explained, “Many memorable photographs have dealt with the land around us. Ansel Adams and Edward Weston have become iconic figures because their carefully crafted photographs have lasted the test of time. Their photographs required the sophisticated use of a camera, lenses, filters, exposure, processing and printing. Their technique has become the model for our generation.”
The photographer adds, “Students in the course will learn about photography as fine art — testing preconceived notions of landscape photography. Beginning to advanced photographers should benefit from the emphasis on practical hands-on photography.”
The workshop consists of three classes. The first session will introduce students to the work of landscape photographers and current fine art technique. The second session is an all-day photographic field trip. Participants are required to bring their own camera gear. The location will to be determined by the students. The third and final session will focus on critique and personal growth. During this session students will have an opportunity to share their portfolio.
