Details

Join me for an afternoon of Foliage & Sculpture Photography. Come capture the contrast of man-made objects with the natural world. The juxtaposition of incredible art in the autumn forests is an ideal photography subject.

ABOUT OUR LOCATION

One of the hidden gems of Southern, NH is the Andres Institute of Art. (http://andresinstitute.org/) The institute is situated on and around Big Bear Mountain in Brookline, NH. The grounds are home to 80 installations of world class sculpture that have been created during their annual symposia.

The sculpture park, located on 140 acres features multiple walking trails. The trails range in difficulty and length allowing access to the sculpture installations around the hillside. Easy walks to more diffiuclt trails, plenty of choices!

PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES

This is a scenic spot and there is nothing quite like a fall afternoon in the New England woods for photography. The variety and scale of the sculptures add so many visual elements to work with. Their placement throughout the landscape make this a one-of-a-kind photo experience.

PHOTO SKILLS TO PRACTICE during this WORKSHOP

• Landscape Photography

• Foliage photography

• Close-up and Macros

• Exposure Bracketing (for HDR)

• Composition and Design

Grab your tripods and your walking shoes for an afternoon outdoors in one of the most unique settings in the northeast. We will begin with a short discussion about foliage photo techniques and I will be on hand to coach your photography. You will also be provided workshop hand-outs to refer to.

This workshop will proceed rain or shine. Inclement weather only adds to the photography potential of being outdoors.
