Shoot Hawaii`s full moon over "Diamond Head" with Pulitzer Prize finalist Frederic Larson, a retired San Francisco Chronicle staffer over 30-years. Find the prefect location to get the full moon rising over Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. Learn how to plot for landmarks, read computer applications, and edit in your camera for the most stunning composition possible. Explore principles of light mastered by Larson over his long award-winning career.

The class incorporates exposure times, f/stop settings, and photographic techniques important in nighttime moon photography. Main areas of emphasis are capturing peak moments while the moon rises off the horizon. The evening is filled with photographic opportunity including the Friday night Hilton fireworks show. If you`re a novice hobbyist or season professional it will be a perfect evening to make award-winning photographs.

Focal length recommended range from medium to long telephoto lenses. A tripod is suggested, as the class will be doing long exposures in low light situations.

To insure your place in this workshop, please register before June 5. Under the new Outreach College guidelines, if the class doesn`t meet minimum enrollment a week in advance it will be canceled.

Fred Larson, a photojournalist for the San Francisco Chronicle for 24 years, specializes in documentary and sports photography.

The photo essay that resulted from the grant was a finalist for the 1989 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography. Larson was named the Photographer of the Year in 1989 and 1990 by the California Press Photographers` Association and was 1991`s Photographer of the Year from the Bay Area Press Photographers Association. His book, Mystical San Francisco, explores the moon, sun, and fog over San Francisco.
