Capturing Breathtaking Landscapes
  • Duration : 60 days

Course Brief :

Have you ever stood in a landscape so beautiful it took your breath away? As photographers, we are constantly trying to capture and save that moment forever. Whether you live in an area with deserts, oceans, forests, or plains, this online and interactive landscape photography course & professional photography course online will help you improve your eye for landscape compositions, so you can share those moments of awe with others.  

Landscape photographers are a privileged lot. They get to experience the natural world, while taking it along home with them in pictures. Landscape photography is an important aspect of documenting our world. Open spaces are becoming scarcer as time goes on. The pleasure of photographing the beauty of nature brings not only pleasure to the eye; it serves to document our natural heritage, caught at a special moment in time. This online landscape photography course taught by professional landscape and fine art photographer, Gina Genis, is designed to help you recognize that opportune moment where elements of photography combine to produce the strongest and most stunning landscape compositions. But our creations won't stop there. Once captured, they will be digitally toned to perfection. Take a walk with your camera and The Compelling Image on this one - and become one of those most privileged landscape photographers.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Bring compelling design to your compositions
  • Choose lighting to define and enhance "mood"
  • Select locations and perspectives for impact
  • Set exposure for controlled effect
  • Tone images to their best


What you will need:

  • DSLR camera, mirrorless compact or film camera (a scanner will be required if using the latter)
  • Wide-angle lens (preferably a zoom)
  • Circular polarizer
  • Sturdy tripod
  • Horizon level that fits your camera's hot shoe or use your camera's built-in level, if it's so equipped
  • Shutter release cable or self-timer setting on your camera, for shooting in low light
  • Computer or tablet with photo-processing software (Lightroom is my choice)
  • Optional equipment: a warming or skylight filter, UV haze filter, Hoodman loupe (so you can better see your screen in bright light)
  • Self-motivation to get the most from this instructor-interactive course
