Day: April 27-April 30

Time: Times Vary (starts 4/27 6:00pm, ends 4/30 12noon)

This workshop will also be held Oct 19-22nd

With intricate details in the landscape and sky — from the brilliant orange-golds of sunrise to the theatrical colors of sunset, the luminous blues of twilight and the otherworldy light of midnight — the latest digital technologies allow photographers to push the bounds of what can be captured with a camera.  Creative vision and good field craft are also paramount to creating compelling images.  In this power-packed workshop, professional nature photographer Mark Bowie will examine in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to create expressive imagery.  He’ll also share processing techniques to convey the desired effect.

Mark will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, marshes, woods, lighthouses and fishing villages.  During indoor instructional sessions, he’ll explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.  He’ll cover field and digital darkroom methods for:

  Reading weather and shooting the light
  Shooting at sunrise and sunset, twilight and at night
  Photographing the night landscape in relation to the celestial skies
  Previsualizing images for artistic result
  Seeing from different vantage points
  Designing and fine-tuning powerful compositions using the principles of visual flow, dynamic tension, balance, leading lines, shapes and patterns
  Using exposure to control mood and atmosphere
  Determining exposure at night
  Achieving critical focus
day and night
  Using Live View
  Working creatively with your full suite of lenses
  Varying shutter speed for artistic effect
  Targeting color and tonal palettes
  The artistry of long exposures
  Creating expressionistic abstracts
  Planning and shooting multiple exposures: layer masks, panoramas, HDR’s, star trails and time-lapse sequences
  Focus stacking
to maximize depth of field
  Blending multiple exposures with state-of-the-art software

Informative and inspiring, this workshop is geared for both amateur and advanced photographers who want to learn to envision the image-making potential of a variety of landscapes and translate it into compelling imagery.  Join Mark to explore wonders of the Cape — from dawn to deep night.

The Art of Seeing Creatively: The Cape from Dawn to Deep Night
Instructor: Mark Bowie

Day: April 27-April 30

Time: Times Vary (starts 4/27 6:00pm, ends 4/30 12noon)

This workshop will also be held Oct 19-22nd

With intricate details in the landscape and sky — from the brilliant orange-golds of sunrise to the theatrical colors of sunset, the luminous blues of twilight and the otherworldy light of midnight — the latest digital technologies allow photographers to push the bounds of what can be captured with a camera.  Creative vision and good field craft are also paramount to creating compelling images.  In this power-packed workshop, professional nature photographer Mark Bowie will examine in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to create expressive imagery.  He’ll also share processing techniques to convey the desired effect.

Mark will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, marshes, woods, lighthouses and fishing villages.  During indoor instructional sessions, he’ll explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.  He’ll cover field and digital darkroom methods for:

  Reading weather and shooting the light
  Shooting at sunrise and sunset, twilight and at night
  Photographing the night landscape in relation to the celestial skies
  Previsualizing images for artistic result
  Seeing from different vantage points
  Designing and fine-tuning powerful compositions using the principles of visual flow, dynamic tension, balance, leading lines, shapes and patterns
  Using exposure to control mood and atmosphere
  Determining exposure at night
  Achieving critical focus
day and night
  Using Live View
  Working creatively with your full suite of lenses
  Varying shutter speed for artistic effect
  Targeting color and tonal palettes
  The artistry of long exposures
  Creating expressionistic abstracts
  Planning and shooting multiple exposures: layer masks, panoramas, HDR’s, star trails and time-lapse sequences
  Focus stacking
to maximize depth of field
  Blending multiple exposures with state-of-the-art software

Informative and inspiring, this workshop is geared for both amateur and advanced photographers who want to learn to envision the image-making potential of a variety of landscapes and translate it into compelling imagery.  Join Mark to explore wonders of the Cape — from dawn to deep night.
