Provincetown workshop report – 2016

Old Harbor Life Saving Station

I haven’t blogged in so long!  Time to turn over a new leaf!

Just concluded the 2016 Provincetown workshop (Cape Cod) for the Photographic Society of Rhode Island camera club…as one participant put it, it was an “embarrassment of riches” because we not only had phenomenal weather, we had gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, full moonrises and moonsets in gorgeous locations…but the best part was, this was such a fun group to be with.  There was such great camaraderie among all who attended.  Conditions were perfect…I spend a lot of time researching the best spots given the weather conditions, including tides and moon phases and it paid off.

This workshop, as most of my other workshops, begins with a sunrise shoot and afternoons are spent processing images as I demonstrate various tips and techniques that I use.  That part of the workshop is always popular…I always tell students that once you take a photograph, you’re only half done…there is so much more you can (and often should) do in order to take images to the next level.  The day concludes with a sunset shoot and another location followed by dinner.

Many of the participants went on a whale watch which, according to the Dolphin Fleet, one of the best trips ever.  There was so much whale activity and everyone came back with spectacular images and wonderful memories to last a lifetime.  I also led the group out to Race Point Lighthouse where we watched the full moon rise over the dunes and lighthouse.

For me, it’s all about the light…and the light on Cape Cod can truly be spectacular.  We had it all on this workshop…great locations, great light, great weather and most importantly, a great group of people. We’re already looking forward to 2017!
