Travel Photography Workshop
Martha’s Vineyard, MA
About Martha’s Vineyard: Martha's Vineyard is beautiful and calm at this time of year and with plenty photographic opportunities.
Located just 7 miles off the coastline of Massachusetts the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard is a world apart offers photographic settings like any other.
The unspoiled charm of Martha's Vineyard is probably best exemplified by the many scenic beaches located here. The beaches vary from protected, shallow, clear-water stretches on the northern and eastern sides of the Island to expanses of rumbling surf along the south side.
The town of Edgartown offer unique photo possibilities, from the unique charm oof the new England fishing village to the whaling captains old houses , to the lighthouses and harbour.
The five lighthouses on the Island of Martha's Vineyard represent the most diverse group in a small, contained area in the country, according to lighthouse buffs. All of the lighthouses are on the north side of the Island: they look out over Vineyard Sound and Nantucket Sound, and over the entrance to Edgartown Harbor and Cape Poge.
The charm of the Menemsha fishing villege, the rolling hills of the agricultural heritage, the color of the gingerbread cottages of Oak Bluffs all blend together to create this special place for photography.
The workshop will combine photo field trips with hands on editing and workflow demonstrations. Topics will include Photography basic theory, Correct exposure, Rules of Compositions, Image editing software techniques. Travel photography tips and tricks, group sessions and ultimately , how to create your unique vision and message into your images.
