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. Photograph fountains, ponds and reflecting pools in gardens.
By the end of the workshop, students 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
