“Light, gesture, and color are the key components of any photograph.” —Jay Maisel
There are few places on earth that are as full of light, gesture, color, and the potential for timelessness as Maine in October. From the color and hue of the leaves to the mists of fog and rain, it is this diversity of the environment that makes for stunning imagery. In this shooting intensive workshop, we will explore all the visual nooks and crannies that Maine visually affords.
This workshop is all about making pictures. Each day will have opportunities for in-the-field shooting experiences. There will be image critiques throughout the week and discussion on how to create images for maximum impact.
The goal of this intensive workshop is for each participant to create images that echo the stillness and beauty of October in Maine – of the light, the gesture, and the color of the moment.
Note: this will be a Photoshop-centric workshop. Lightroom will not be used or explored.
Two-day online post-processing intensive
In addition to the week-long workshop in Rockport, there will be two follow-up (online) sessions on Saturday, October 28th, and Sunday, October 29th from 10am–5pm ET. This will be a two-day intensive on learning how to post-process the images made during the fieldwork in Maine.
For some locations, participants should bring along a hunter’s orange hat (or another article of orange clothing).
