Photography In Oregon - Book 1, written by Michael C. Jensen, a professional photographer and photography instructor is the beginning of a photographic trip around the state of Oregon. The Photography In Oregon series is a “How to & Where to” guide to photography in Oregon.
Mike Jensen is well known in the Central Oregon region as a fun and informative teacher and workshop leader as well as being a frequent contributor of images and articles to many Central Oregon publications.
If you have an interest in photography from novice skills to professional you still need a scout and guide to the best photo spots in the state. The everyday tourist can access most photos in this book but as Jensen describes “The big difference between the tourist level photo and the “hang on the wall” photos are usually what time you get up in the morning! With the type of camera gear we have at the entry & mid level, fantastic photos are within most everyone’s reach.”
Book 1 includes some of Mike’s favorite places to photograph in Oregon. Because Oregon is such a diverse state Mike has divided this photographic effort into three books, possibly four. Book 1 includes such well-known locations as Crater Lake and Silver Falls and unknown areas such as the Alvord Desert or Big Lake.
The trick with any great photoshoot is great scouting, and a bit of luck! Usually that involves finding a local photographer to help show you around. With Jensen’s familiarity of the area and this book as a guideline. The book includes not only a “Where to” guide for shooting locations, but a whole group of “How to” tips the author has used to get the shots you see in the book.
Included in Book 1 are Mike’s light-hearted Rules Of Photography, and entire section giving you tips on reading histograms, shooting panoramas, editing and some great suggestions on “What to buy” and “Where to buy it” if you’re looking for anything from gear to training. Mike finishes the book with an introduction to Book 2 which will focus on Mike’s Central Oregon backyard.
