Photographing Winter Sunsets

February 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The warm glow of a winter sunset.

All it takes is 2 hours on 2 Sunday afternoons to get cool images of the winter setting sun. Our first week finds us on the top of “Waterfall Hill” to gain an elevated view of the sun dropping behind the berm wall that runs along the expressway. After reviewing student images on week 2, we’ll be spotting the sun from Spider Island and other garden venues. This class is short on duration, but long on images you’ll want to frame. A tripod is strongly recommended, and the class is limited to DSLR cameras.

About Jack

A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.

The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.

Each photograph tells a story.
