Cape Cod Weekend PhotoJourneys Workshop

Sept 22th-24th, 2017  $395



Once again, we are journeying to Cape Cod!! September on the Cape is considered by some to be the most lovely, with dramatic light and less crowds.

Writers, painters, and photographers have long enjoyed the benefits of a Cape Cod creative retreat. This magnificent haven boasts incredible sunrises and sunsets, still wild long sandy beaches, ponds and tall grasses, salt marshes, lighthouses, dramatic sand dunes, quaint shops, a even a windmill.

During the workshop, Kathy will work with each participant to address opportunities to capture unique images and enhance their photographic knowledge and skill. The goal of the workshop is learning in a supportive and fun environment with other photo enthusiasts.

There will be plenty of in the field shooting, as well as post capture editing time.

During the class session as well as having time to work on your images,  Kathy will give feedback on your work, in terms of style, content and composition, so you can work on your own personal shooting style. In the field, Kathy assigns fun and directed exercises to challenge your photo eye!

Kathy is an Adobe certified Lightroom expert and will be sharing tips on non-destructive post-processing to quickly and easiy enhance your images. If you don’t own Lightroom, you can download the free 30 day trial from Adobe, but it’s not required. However you feel comfortable editing is fine.

We will discuss camera settings and functions that can be used to increase your creativity, exposure, depth of field, rules of composition and other digital tips. The class size is small so the personal attention time is high. We want you to come home with amazing photos and a better understanding of how you achieved them!
