Each year, the Albion Field Station offers one- and two-week painting and photography sessions as well as the long-standing weekend workshops in bird watching. Participants lodge and dine at the Albion Field Station facilities, while seasoned instructors lead out in programs at the Field Station and in scores of locations on the stunning Mendocino Coast. Families and individuals of all ages and all expertise levels are welcomed to these sessions and workshops.
This consists of two 1-week courses. The first course assumes no previous experience with photography. It focuses on learning to use the camera and learning to use photography for expressive purposes. The second course is for students who already know how to use manual exposure (aperture/f-stop, shutter speed and ISO) and want to spend additional time learning about night photography and creating a series of images on a single topic. Both courses emphasize landscape subject matter. However, there is room to discuss other genres of photography if students' are interested.
A camera with manual exposure capability and a tripod is required for both classes. A digital SLR or mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses is recommended. Warm clothes, a remote release, a small flashlight, and extra batteries for you camera are highly recommended because most of the in-class shoots are outdoors in the evening during the golden hour. Most point-and-shoot cameras will not work. However, some of the compact cameras such as the Canon G-10 - G-11 - G-12 series have manual exposure capability and can be used. If you have questions about equipment, please contact the instructor.
