Media & Techniques:
Digital cameras, including iPhones, are reviewed and students discuss camera techniques for aesthetic and technical application in the field.
Students learn about the historic and scenic significance of each location. Students also work one-on-one with faculty throughout the day to improve their photography. At least one hour is spent at each site, with driving times kept to a minimum.
