Shells, water, weathered wood, clouds, sand or people, the weekend promises to be fun.
Dewey Beach, Delaware
Friday, April 25th, 5 p.m. through Sunday, April 27th, 2 p.m.
Details: The Surf Club is a comfortable, cozy, quiet, on the beachfront, has small kitchenettes and has room for small groups of people to meet. I've held many gatherings here and have found the staff to be supportive and helpful.
Friday evening. We'll meet at 5:00 in my room for a potluck dinner. It will be a casual meet and greet, and then, weather permitting, we'll take time on the beach to photograph the sunset. We'll leave my room at 7 p.m. for an 8 p.m. sunset.
Saturday morning. I will be up before dawn shooting, and anyone who likes is welcome to join me.
At 10:00 a.m. Saturday, we will meet in my room to officially begin instruction.
The weekend will be free-flowing with a mixture of time for classroom learning about light, composition and color and time to photograph on the beach and small towns around Dewey Beach.
During the weekend, I will do a 30-minute review of composition and challenge you to see light in composition. You will be 'free' to photograph your choice of abstracts, landscapes, colors or people in the street.
With such a variety of 'scenery' available to us, subject matter will be YOUR choice!
We'll spend time talking and experimenting with natural and available light. We'll talk about 'seeing' light and how to work with light with no fancy tools, both inside and outside and in the shade.
We'll shoot sunrise (optional!) and sunsets and Sunday afternoon take time to share photos, so bring your laptops and get ready for a wonderful weekend at the beach.
You'll have lots of opportunity to shoot and get lots of personal attention to have questions answered.
A really fun weekend to get creative and explore while listening to ocean waves
