Photo Walks - Lake Merced & Ft. Funston

Harvey Milk Photo Center Winter 2017 Term

Photo Walks – Lake Merced & Fort Funston


We’ll discuss several conceptual ideas for nature photography as well as try out several techniques such as fill-flash, depth of field, color balance, lens choice, macro photography and capturing atmosphere. *Note: You will need a digital SLR camera and the ability to use it in MANUAL mode. A variety of lenses, a light tripod, extra batteries and CF or SD cards are recommended. Don’t forget water, comfortable walking shoes and cell phones. Sunrise Walk at Lake Merced: Meet at sunrise to catch the early bird atmosphere of Lake Merced’s moisture rising off the lake surface, fishermen, and rays of sunlight through the trees. Sunset Ft. Funston: Magic Hour Walk-on the Trails. Spend this early Fall Magic Hour capturing beautiful photographs at SF’s most diverse nature spot. Low flying hang gliders, ocean sunset, bouncing packs of dogs, and everything the beach has to offer in a  place that offers many geological formations and a great variety of flora and birds.
