There is a “visual quiet” that complements the silence marking winter in a most remarkable place. A lifting morning poconip fog, tufa towers jacketed in snow and reflected in the mirror of Mono Lake’s surface, ice sculpting crystalline filigree along creek and lake banks. Come share in the wonder that provides a very different photographic opportunity.
This photography field seminar will be based in Lee Vining, near the shores of Mono Lake. We will explore various locations along the lake and photograph the serenity and beauty that is the Mono Basin in winter. The Mono Basin winter landscape can be both dramatic and sublime—the Sierra Nevada is thoroughly covered in snow, and the lake is noticeably empty of life. Scheduled right before the new moon, we’ll have opportunities to practice nighttime photography under the starry skies of the Eastern Sierra.
Though primarily a field seminar, we will discuss composition and methods of proper exposure under the diverse variety of lighting conditions encountered during winter in the Eastern Sierra, visualization, filtration, and developing a personal vision.
All ability levels are welcome!
