Wednesdays • 6 classes • 9/22-10/27 • 10:15 AM-12:15 PM

18 seats remaining

The first session of this course will be taught on remote Zoom. The remaining 5 sessions will be a mixture of remote Zoom and field trips. Elise will arrange the schedule with the class.

Maine is a beautiful place to photograph throughout the year. This class explores the unique opportunities of photographing during the four seasons – including foliage, snow, Christmas, and spring flowers. The course will start with a review of camera settings and a discussion of the elements of composition. It is hoped that the class will photograph in the field at such places as Vaughan Woods in Hallowell, orchards, and farms.
