Winter on Cape Cod is a special time with unique photo opportunities. Most of the tourists and part time residents are gone. Many businesses are closed. Beaches, harbors and streets are empty. Over several days we will explore Cape Cod’s winterscapes–everything from the natural beauty of the beaches and marshes to shuttered business and deserted harbors and streets. We’ll also take advantage of the shorter day-light hours to experiment with low light and night photography. Along the way we’ll work on winter shooting tips, how to improve your eye by “seeing” a scene, low light and night photography and editing techniques to get your pictures looking their best.
There will be a full moon both nights, so we’ll also try some moonrise and moonset photography
This year, the plan is to focus on the upper and mid Cape. We’ll begin Friday evening at 5pm with a welcome Zoom meeting and short classroom session and then head out for a night shoot at the Cape Cod Canal. We start early on Saturday morning with moonset and sunrise and will keep going until evening. There will be a classroom and critique break midday. Sunday we again begin with an early morning field shoot and continue through mid morning and break around noon. You’ll have time over the next few days on your own to review and edit your images. We’ll reconvene Wednesday evening, February 3, at 6pm via Zoom, for a final review of images and discussion.
