Event Details

Nature photography is about so much more than epic grand landscapes. In this presentation, Sarah Marino will teach you how to see beyond the grand scenes to expand your photographic opportunities, improve your observation skills, work with any kind of light, and bring diversity to your photo portfolio. Sarah will share a lot of examples, plus a few in-depth case studies, of intimate landscapes, abstract renditions of natural subjects, and portraits of plants and trees to inspire you to seek out small scenes next time you are outside with your camera.

Join us for this members’ only Zoom meeting and explore smallscapes as well as the grandscapes!
