Photography seminar on schooner Zodiac
September 2012
Join me September 21 - 23 for a three day photography cruise and seminar aboard the 127' historic schooner Zodiac. During the weekend we will photograph on and off the boat learning how to photograph crew action, sailing ships, and the beaches, towns and harbors that we visit during the cruise. In the evening and in the morning before lifting anchor, we will review the days photographs, demonstrate printing and image enhancement techniques and discuss wide ranging topics from why we photograph to how to photograph and edit a photo essay. I'll also present my own work and review participants portfolios, so in addition to your camera gear, bring prints or digital files to share.
