Nature Photography Backpacking
Academic Noncredit

To be a better nature photographer, one must be a better naturalist. This course is designed to help students not only get the most out of their photographic equipment but to help them develop a wildlife ethic. Color film slides will be used to explore outdoor photographic problems such as exposure, focus, shutter speed effects, and depth of field. Course includes two classroom sessions and an overnight weekend field trip.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
