Online: Self-Paced

How often have you been struck by the sheer majesty of a mountain range? And how often have you tried to capture that scene in a photo, only to see the mountain range transform into a weird blur that from some angles looks like day-old mashed potatoes?

That's what we call "the torment of nature". We are surrounded by beautiful and dramatic landscapes that are wonderful to experience but a challenge to photograph.

Which is where this course comes in. You learn photographic techniques and how to use your camera to take photographs that capture the awe-inspiring landscapes and the subtle details of the natural world.

Average commitment per module: 3+ hours. Total course commitment: 15+ hours.
