2019 – Lighthouses & Lobsters of Mid-Coast Maine

Lighthouses & Lobsters Wednesday May 15th pm rough Sunday May 19th am 2019

   

   

This photo workshop focuses on the mid-Maine coastal region around Damariscotta, Rockland and Port Clyde areas. Coincidentally, Osprey may be very active during our workshop dates preying on the Alewives that come inland to spawn. We’ll check that out as well but won’t be our focus. So, besides Lighthouses, lobster boats and pretty Maine harbors plan on flower, street , long exposure, sunrise & sunset photography!

The workshop starts on Wednesday May 15th at 3pm at our hotel (Hotel Pemaquid with special rates for the workshop…room cost not included in workshop fee) & ends around noon on Sunday May 19th around noon time and costs $549 with two workshop leaders in the field. This workshop includes a review session on the last morning.
The mid coast of Maine is home to several photogenic lighthouses and we will spend time exploring them along with the areas around them along the coast. Two Lighthouses that are the highlight of this area and ones we’ll visit include Pemaquid Point Light & Marshall Point Light. We will work on subject development with an emphasis on travel photography and scenics using all of the lenses in your camera bag. Be ready and rested for long days with evening and early morning photography when the light is great for photography.
During the 4+ days & evenings we will work in the field with attendees as we explore a wide variety of subject matter.

In this workshop we will cover:
Exposure
Composition
Metering
Subject Development
Use of Lenses
Use of Filters
Creative Thinking
Shooting in Low Light
Night and long exposure photography
Long Exposures
