"Capturing the Essence of Landscape" at the Duxbury Art Association

"Capturing the Essence of Landscape" at the Duxbury Art Association

Dramatic landscape images are rarely the product of simply being in the right place at the right time - they are usually borne of hard work, forethought, planning, and patience.  In this class you will learn about composition and technique, but more importantly you will learn how to imagine and predict what conditions will best complement your subjects. Class time will be split, with approximately 2.5 hours in the classroom and 1.5 hours on a field trip to Duxbury Beach. Students should have at least a basic knowledge of how their cameras operate.

Erik Gehring is the President of the Boston Camera Club and a freelance photographer who specializes in natural landscapes.  He lives in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston with his wife Julie and sons Carl and William.  Although Erik enjoys photographing natural environments all over New England, his favorite destination is Boston’s Arnold Arboretum, and for the last seven years he has published a calendar of images taken in the Arboretum landscape entitled Trees of Boston.
