Lassen Volcanic National Park
August 21-26, 2018
Explore the undiscovered opportunities to create photographic art within Lassen Volcanic National Park. Framing and exposing for steaming fumaroles is a challenge that lends itself to impressionism as well as grasping the active Bumpass Hell hydrothermal area of thumping mud pots, boiling pools, and steaming ground. Then challenge yourself to capture meadows freckled with wildflowers or alpine lakes with reflections that echo surrounding jagged peaks that tell the story of its eruptive force with photographic eyes that can shape new understandings. Lassen Volcanic is a land of solitude and landscape scenes that make this the Master Landscape Photography class special for those who want to explore the undiscovered.
