Three full days, traveling 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, both 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 to 12, so you will receive ample individual attention, with not one, but two 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.
While we try to make sure everything is perfect for the workshop, alas we can not control the weather. But it won’t stop us from shooting. Some of the best landscape images were taken just before, during or just after rain!
Admission fees for locations will be included with your tuition.
