In general, landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature like grass, mountains, water and trees but landscapes can also focus on man-made features, such as buildings, boats, and piers. In this Focus Group, we will learn the different ways we can improve our landscape photography by improving our knowledge of the following tips and techniques:

- Use of wide angle lenses
- Proper Fstop, Shutter speed, and ISO to get everything in focus
- What filters to use
- What compositional rules work best with landscapes
- What lighting is best
- More advanced topics such as High Dynamic Range (HDR) may also be covered

Each month, we will concentrate on a topic, such as: sunset, water, or grass. We will then share and critique our photos in each monthly focus group meeting. We will also take a few fieldtrips and go out on location together to practice our skills and techniques. Meeting Days TBA
