Light of Cape Cod – Spring Photography Workshop

Super Moon - Cape Cod Sand Dunes

Super Moon – Cape Cod Sand Dunes

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 Capes 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. We will start each day early so as to capture images in the best possible light. We will grab a coffee and a quick breakfast. We then photograph throughout the morning, breaking at mid-morning for an image review, lunch and instruction sessions.

In the late afternoon, we will head out for more photography, concluding after sunset. Dinner will be at a location of your choosing. We will then meet to do image downloads and for a feedback session. An open discussion session will be included as well as a prep session for the next day. Whenever possible, we will attempt some night photography and light painting sessions.
