Explore the beautiful coastline of the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Visit numerous breath-taking locations exploring sandy beaches, rippled dunes, brave old fishing piers, and majestic lighthouses. Develop your own unique vision and strengthen the bond you have with your viewers.
For three full days, we will travel up and down the Outer Banks together, shooting some of the most beautiful locations the area has to offer, from sunrises by the sea, to sunsets under classic piers to star gazing by an historic lighthouse. Throughout the workshop, all three instructors will be beside you to help you with composition, camera settings, filter choices, etc. We will be covering topics such as exposure, camera settings, histograms, hyper-focal distance, high dynamic range (HDR), long exposures, “seeing” in black and white, and the use of various filters.
Enrollment is limited, so you will receive ample individual attention, with not one, but three qualified instructors to assist you. You’ll quickly learn through direct hands-on instruction. This is the best way to learn and remember it for your next outing.
What are the Outer Banks?
A 200-mile-long string of narrow peninsulas and barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. They cover most of the North Carolina coastline, separating the Currituck Sound, Albemarle Sound, and Pamlico Sound from the Atlantic Ocean. The Outer Banks are a landscape photographers paradise and are known around the world for their subtropical climate and wide expanse of open beachfront.
There is no better time to visit the Outer Banks. After the craziness of the summer crowd onslaught, Fall is just magic on this long narrow strip of land. The marsh grasses shift to stunning browns and the beaches are free from people and bugs. Mist hangs in the early morning air and the atmosphere of intrigue is everywhere.
