Student Images From Amelia and the Southern Sea Islands

December proved to be the perfect time for a workshop based on Amelia Island. The weather was cool, but not cold. The winter light was beautiful. The marsh was still showing some green. There was a hint of fall color in the landscape. Beaches were quiet. And it was easy to find a parking space and to get into local restaurants.

We had a great group of women who gathered to explore Amelia, Big Talbot, Little Talbot and Fort George Islands—photographing natural, designed and cultural landscapes, along with seascapes and stunning skies. Here’s a peek at some of the work they created throughout the week.


Student Images: Maine Media Photographing Water Workshop

What better way to spend a week in summer than exploring the Maine Coast, photographing water? We had a group that did just that in July. In addition to photographing the ocean, rivers and water gardens, they got their feet wet photographing fog and rain as well! Still water, moving water, reflections and recreational activities were all part of this class. Here are a few of the watery images captured by students:

What is this thing we call landscape? What do we mean by place? And what elements in the landscape give a place a sense of place? How can we move beyond the obvious shots to photograph the true character of a landscape or the "fingerprints" of place? We'll explore these questions through discussions, image reviews and extensive in-the-field photography during a three-day workshop on Great Cranberry Island, Maine.

The workshop is sponsored by the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation. Details and registration information can be found on their website.
