Landscape Photography Lightroom Presets
In the case of outdoor photography, it is not always necessary to take the meter to the location of the principal subject. Under such conditions the illumination is usually uniform over considerable areas. If the illumination is the same at subject location and at camera location the meter may be used at camera location. Care should be exercised to point the meter in the proper direction, as though it were at the subject location. There are some situations, occasionally encountered in outdoor photography, which require special attention.
Eadweard Muybridge immigrated to the United States in 1852, where he began his career as a landscape photographer, producing stunning images of the US Pacific Coast, San Francisco, and Yosemite Valley. He also provided photographic surveys of the Central Pacific Railroad and documented the Modoc Indian Wars. In 1872 he was hired by the former governor of California, Leland Stanford, to prove that, at a particular moment in its gait, all four hooves of a galloping horse leave the ground. This required that Muybridge photograph a horse in motion yet photographing a moving subject had never been done before. Muybridge produced the evidence confirming Stanford's theory, although no prints of this experiment survive.
One emerging trend is for restaurants to use the work of local artists and photographers to decorate their walls. If this is common in your community, it is yet another way of locating photographers who might be willing to assist you in some of the ways outlined above. A nature photographer, for example, would be another good choice for a class presentation and may also be open to escorting your class on a field trip to a local scenic area.

Finally, don't forget the wedding photographers, nature photographers, technical photographers, print retouchers, lab technicians, camera repair shops, antique dealers and others who may have specialized skills or information to offer your class. A close inspection of the Yellow Pages may be the best place to start a busy year of informative presentations and field trips.
