Description: September is a magical time on Cape Cod. The weather is warm and pleasant and the hordes of summer tourists have retreated back home. In this workshop, we will explore the beauty of Cape Cod’s natural environment, from its classic sand dunes and Atlantic shorelines to its oak-pine savannahs to its intimate tidal estuaries. Indoor instruction will include one to two hours (per day) of lectures covering composition, close-up techniques, and digital imaging skills using Photoshop and Lightroom. We will also have the opportunity for several critique sessions where we review the images we shoot during the workshop. The workshop schedule will be flexible so that we can be out shooting in the best light possible for the subject matter.
Lectures and critique sessions will be held at the Four Points by Sheraton in Eastham.
