Explore ‘Color and Composition in Photographs’ on the Western Shore

Sitting on the dock of the bay…

Explore ‘Color and Composition in Photographs’ on the Western Shore

Come join us for brunch, and a talk on how to photograph color. After our short talk, we'll take some time to shoot together in some spots near the restaurant and explore other places along the beautiful Western Shore. We'll finish up around 4 or so. The emphasis is on shooting, not talking! So bring your cameras and your questions and come on out.

$59 (includes a color wheel, but does not include food or drinks)

Where: Galesville, MD, just an hour drive from downtown Washington, DC

Color is one of the most powerful elements of a photograph and one of the most challenging to master. 

In this really fun workshop, we’ll gather at Pirates Cove in Galesville, MD.  The area is beautiful and inspiring, overflowing with photo opps of boats, docks, skies, birds and fabulous color.

Over brunch, we’ll talk about how to use a color wheel to create more dynamic photos and learn what opportunities are presented to us. We’ll talk about complementary colors as well as triads, analogous colors and some psychology of color.

We’ll talk about the weather that day and how to take advantage of the light we are offered. An overcast day offers different opportunities than bright overhead light. But each has its advantages and opportunities for memorable and stunning photographs.

Color, and the quality of color is ever-changing, and so we’ll work with what we have--a dynamic atmosphere and a chance to really see how a pro deals with any kind of weather.

    Vickie, I enjoy the assignments (aka challenges) that you give me. On one hand, you help me think outside of my usual box. On the other hand, you have given me great ideas for themes that I might exhibit.

    It was fun and informative. Vickie provided good motivation to think more about colors - an impact and how colors work (or don't :)) together.

    Will there be a critique at the end?

      Hi Mark. For this class, on location, it's really just to hard to do a critique that day. I am hearing though, that critiques and sharing are an important part of the process and I am thinking of a way to do that for classes. Perhaps a monthly get together for participants to share? Not sure...would love input.

    Well, Neal, the site masked my phone, which is a good thing I think. Suggestion: You leave note here with Sunday morning time you will pick me up at Grosvenor Station drive-thru. I'll meet you there.

      If Neal logs into the site, he will be able to read your phone number.

    Thanks, Neal! I'll sign up. Please call me[masked] to sort out the details.

    I would like to attend, but I'll need to carpool. I live near Grosvenor Metro stop on the Red Line, and I can meet anyone at any time, at any place accessible by Metro. Any takers?
    Thanks,
    Ron

    • Neal M.

      Yes I can give you a ride, I live just a couple of miles from Grosvenor.

    Vickie is an excellent teacher. I know this will be a fun afternoon.
