Announcing the Light of Cape Cod
A 4-day, 3-night photography workshop – Eastham, MA – May 24 to 27, 2019
Mid Spring in Cape Cod is a multi-faceted photo opportunity with truly spectacular scenics and some wildlife. The tourists have not crowded the roads and traffic is not a nightmare. This very special workshop is for all levels of photographers from beginner to advanced. The Cape provides some of the most incredible landscapes and seascapes and the light during spring is exceptional. We will explore and photograph the Cape’s classic seashore, sand dunes, lighthouses, and some wildlife. We will determine schedules and locations based on weather forecasts, tides and sunrise/sunset times. We may even explore the opportunity to do some night photography.
The workshop will begin with a meet and greet and an orientation briefing. We will then venture out to capture a sunset. A post-dinner short classroom session devoted to teaching exposure theory, composition and field techniques will be conducted. Each day we will explore various landscapes whether intimate ones or those on a grand scale, photographing sand patterns, marsh grasses, and fishing scenes.
Our days will be based on a very flexible schedule allowing us to respond to the opportunities based on weather and light conditions so you can have the best photo experiences each day.
A few comments from past participants:
I learned a lot about digital photography from this hands-on, highly flexible workshop, and met a great network of people with a shared interest in becoming better photographers.
The Cape Cod Light workshop was such an incredible learning experience. The sites selected to photograph the sunsets were just beautiful. The entire group was so much fun and great to photograph with. I would like to thank Shiv and Monica for a fun-filled weekend and am looking forward to my next workshop with them. Gail Shiv is a great instructor and a great time was had by all.
It was a wonderful experience to be around the two of you. We learned so much. Both technically as well as rushing up our concepts. We also really value the personal touch. Thank you.
This workshop exceeded my expectations. It was chock full of practical information, and hands on shoots. It has elevated my photography to another level and given me the confidence and understanding to use a variety of settings on my camera but most importantly-the manual camera mode. My shooting will no longer be random, but previsualized, and deliberate. Shiv is an extraordinary instructor and makes sure you understand the concepts and feel comfortable applying them. He makes himself readily available to assist you in the process. This is the second workshop I have taken with him and hope to find the time to take many more. (Thanks so much for everything this weekend, it was fantastic, Ellen)
I consider myself an Advanced Hobbiest Photographer, but with still much to learn. Well Shiv Verma’s “The Light of Cape Cod” workshop was a well worth taken for experience I learned. The locations Shiv scouted out to photograph were wonderful. Not only classic Cape Cod scenes, but other sites on the Cape that were off the beating trail. Shiv not only teaches you about composition, but gives you his technical expertise on the use of exposure, HDR, and use of filters. He even got me over the learning curve of 100% manual exposure and shutter lockup for my landscape photos. I would recommend anyone to take this particular workshop, and I am personally looking to take another workshop of his at a different location.
