National Park Photography Expedition Lassen Volcanic National Park Master Class August 18-23, 2020
TO REGISTER: CLICK HERE
The Lassen Volcanic Master Class is a 5-day full immersion, photography workshop that teaches an end-to-end workflow for the creation of landscape art. Students learn landscape capture techniques, creative composition approaches, atmospherics, visualization techniques and post-production methods that will allow them to express their subjective thoughts and feelings. The workshop is small, intimate, collegial, and the instruction hands-on, with intensive field capture instruction at specific locations. Photographers identify and then increase the emotional range of their work to create images that are a vision beyond documentation while gaining valuable insights into landscape thematics, mini-portfolio creation, environmental considerations, and visualization skills for the creation of landscape art photographs.
Arrive on Day One for evening orientation — Depart for home on Day Six.  Four full days of onsite photographic and post-production classes.Upon their return home, students receive 5 hours of online post-production tutor training.

THE LASSEN VOLCANIC NATIONAL PARK LANDSCAPE

Lassen Volcanic National Park is perhaps the crown jewel of America’s national parks. It is a remote, nearly hidden land of jaw-dropping alpine lakes, steaming volcanic vents, splattering mud pots, boiling springs— and as you experience them, you know that the earth is not quiet. Master Class photographers create visual studies within the park’s signature volcano activity at Bumpass Hell and Boiling Springs Lake and learn specialized exposure concepts that will create photographic art from the sharp edges of volcanic rock against the soft edges of Sulphur clouds. Experience a landscape in renaissance as you capture images from the stark Redding Burn and then move on to quiet Lilly ponds that offer opportunities to find exquisite patterns and textures.

CURRICULUM ASSIGNMENTS LASSEN VOLCANIC NATIONAL PARK

While we teach many of the same processes and creative approaches in all parks, each Master Class has a unique theme assignment. Master Class photographers receive proprietary assignments for each location, explore documentary, narration and navigation art approaches, and create mini portfolios of their work
