The best way to learn is in the field, hands on and be able to go to new places. By taking the “Photos in the Field” class, you will be traveling to multiple locations to understand various photography skills and techniques. You will be taught to photograph landscapes, night photography, street photography, architecture and many other techniques. Field trips will be approximately 2 hours (not including travel) that will be within 45 minutes of Princeton University.

Please be advised this class will be more geared towards if you have basic knowledge and understanding of how exposure and manual settings work. DISCLAIMER: WE WILL BE WALKING ON A HANDFUL OF LOCATIONS AND SOME MIGHT BE HIKING TRAILS.

Class Requirements (not needed for first class March 3):

 • Basic knowledge and understanding of exposure and manual settings

 • Camera that operates in Manual Mode (DSLR or Mirrorless preferred)

 • Tripod (that holds the weight of your camera and lens together)

 • Camera backpack or bag (make sure it is comfortable to walk with and maybe a tripod holder)

Due to COVID-19, all measures of safety will apply. Masks will be required and the practice of social distancing will be in effect.
