Provincetown Afternoon Photo Walk
Meet at the base of MacMillan Pier, where we will start with an introduction that will guide you to make photographs with a greater creative vision. Explore the quality of light, color, visual depth, and visual design. “Lensbaby” lens, loaners are available, and HDR (high dynamic range) will be introduced for which a tripod is recommended. Provincetown, with its active working harbor, is a great place to photograph. We will walk through town and explore the small New England houses and gardens, capturing windows and doorways. Of course the people and many characters of town are wonderful subjects too.
Provincetown, Cape Cod Workshops
All Cape Cod workshops begin Friday afternoon (except the workshop with John Barclay which begins Thursday afternoon) with a get together and a sunset shoot, and end Sunday morning, after a sunrise or morning shoot, and a wrap up breakfast. Workshops are from 6-12 people. We will be going out for sunrise or morning and sunset/evening shoots on Friday and Saturday as well as Sunday morning. During the day, I will critique some of your chosen photos, and go over different techniques, etc. This is a general itinerary. Each day's schedule varies due to the location we visit that day, how long we shoot, and it can change depending on the weather.
We will be based in Provincetown, on the tip of Cape Cod, at the nicest times of the year. We will be photographing in the dunes, national seashore, light houses, beaches, harbor.... capturing wonderful iconic scenes, close up details, landscapes, reflections, etc. Provincetown has an active working harbor, and is very interesting to photograph. This is a great place to photograph and explore the small New England houses and gardens, capturing windows and doorways. Of course the people and many characters of town are wonderful subjects.
One of the goals of this workshop is to guide you to make photographs with more impact. I will help you to develop your photographic vision. We’ll cover the quality of natural light, color, visual depth, visual design, and composition in landscape and close up technique. For those that still use automatic settings, I will teach you how to get your camera off of these. You will learn how to creatively photograph using different techniques and lenses, and I will be teaching HDR (high dynamic range), how to use Lensbaby lenses, with Nikon and Canon Lensbaby loaners, creative camera movement, and more. I encourage you to read your manual, and know how to use your camera when you get to the workshop. This will help you move forward with creativity and vision.
I have been living and photographing at the tip of Cape Cod for about 30 years. Many of my award winning images, have been featured in magazines, and articles over the years. In the winter months, I travel mostly to Asia where I do travel photography and workshops. I am happy to share with you my favorite locations, photographic expertise, and get you to excellent sunrise and sunset locations on time.
