Make eye-catching images of water that convey its beauty, serenity, power, and mystery while exploring the rocky shoreline, inland waterways, and water gardens of Mid-coast Maine.  Experiment with creative techniques for capturing action, the passage of time, reflections, and abstractions.  Learn to shoot in different light and weather conditions. Explore a variety of coastal and fresh-water environments — from tidal pools, rock-strewn beaches and salt marshes to rippling brooks and mountain lakes.  Photography fountains, ponds, and reflecting pools in gardens.

By the end of the workshop, you should be able to:

  • Work more creatively, playfully and experimentally
  • Compose more compelling images
  • Express emotion through photographs of water
  • Understand the impact of light and weather on water
  • Use tools such as tripods, polarizing filters and ND filters to improve and broaden the range of photographs that can be made
  • Photograph a wide range of water elements in both natural and built environments
  • Think beyond the capture to potential image processing and presentation options

Lee Anne White is captivated by the beauty, essence and changing complexion of natural, designed and cultural landscapes. She enjoys them most in the quiet moments—in the soft light of sunrise and sunset, on winter days when trees bare their bones, and on foggy mornings when less is visible and the world doesn’t seem quite so complicated.
