WEEK 7 – Landscape Photography Workshop & Joshua Tree

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all ready to crush SC this weekend… go Bruins!
As you know, we are gearing up for our first camping trip of the year- Joshua Tree! The preparations are made and we are ready to have a long, fun and photogenic weekend. If you’re going on the trip, look out for an email tonight! Not going to Joshua Tree? Going to Joshua Tree but can’t wait for 6am Saturday to come soon enough? Well, you’re in luck; our fearless president Stanley Wu is hosting a landscape photography workshop this FRIDAY, November 21 at 3:30 in Ackerman 2412! Attendance is open to all current UCLA students.
From Stanley: “
Landscape photography has as its aim to capture the light of the natural world. However, this light can be quite elusive in nature, and requires special effort to experience. In effect, the practice of landscape photography is often thus described as “light-chasing”.

In this workshop, I will be introducing the art to those not yet familiar. Topics include composition, light, and locations, as well as more technical aspects, such as equipment used, shooting manual, and taking long exposures. I will discuss the many aspects of landscape photography to illuminate the field and show why it is often called “light-chasing”. Afterwards, there will be a Q&A session to answer any questions or discuss additional topics that members bring up.”

Have a great week!
