Very early spring in the Mono Basin combines the “visual quiet” of winter with longer days and a different quality of light as the planet begins to tilt back toward the sun. Poconip ice fog, ice‐covered tufa towers, and warm spring‐like days are all possible, combined with the towering Sierra Nevada backdrop, most likely blanketed in snow. Add the rising full moon and opportunities to photograph a snowy landscape by moonlight, and the photographic possibilities are endless. This photography field seminar will be based in Lee Vining, near the shores of Mono Lake. Though primarily a field seminar, we will discuss composition and methods of proper exposure under the diverse variety of lighting conditions encountered during winter in the Eastern Sierra—including nighttime and moonlit photography—visualization, filtration, and developing a personal vision.
