We’ve all seen gorgeous landscape shots – sprawling green hills and blue skies, glossy waves swallowing up glowing red sunsets, towering mountains and lush forest oases – but just what goes into capturing these scenes for yourself? Even still, is there a way to distinguish your own landscapes from those of others and bring a totally new creative approach to presenting them?

Creating successful landscape images of your own requires photographic knowledge as well as an understanding of creative technique, both of which you will be able to tap into when you enroll in the “Landscape, Beyond the Postcard” workshop led by pro photographer and National Geographic contributor Raul Touzon November 11-13 at Lumoid HQ: 375 Potrero Ave Suite 1 San Francisco, CA.
