Course Description

Have you ever returned home from a trip disappointed with the photos you captured?

During this four-hour course, our expert staff will share their passion for the great outdoors and teach you how to tell a better visual story. Learn new photography tips and techniques as you hike to some spectacular scenic vistas. We'll discuss basic camera functions like shutter speed and depth of field, elements of composition and light, and how to highlight your subject. From macro photography to landscapes to panoramas, we'll experiment with different perspectives and camera functions to help you take your skills to an inspiring new level.

Whether you have a simple point-and-shoot camera, a smartphone or a top-of-the-line digital SLR, you don't want to miss this great opportunity to learn from experts, receive instant feedback on picture-taking techniques and create a beautiful visual story of your outdoor adventures.

All levels of photographers are welcome.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
