Geophotography > Geophotography Workshop 2013

Geophotography Webinar Series

The geosciences rely heavily on photographic images as one of the most important means by which information is recorded and shared. Geophotography encompasses a number of genres: landscape and outcrop photography, mineral specimen photography, paleontological photography, repeat photography, time-lapse photography, photomicroscopy, and much more. However, rarely is any training afforded or forethought given to the photography of geologic features and processes. This workshop was convened to help geoscientists improve their photographic skills to enhance the creation and use of geo-imagery in research and instructional practices.
