“The question is not what you look at, but what you see” Henri David Thoreau

The art of seeing is an active process of observing the world around us with deliberate thoughtfulness. In photography it’s what you do with what you see that counts. Subject matter provides the build blocks while composition acts like the glue holding it all together. and light sets the stage for capturing a moment capable of conveying a sense of being there.

The workshop begins on Friday evening with an orientation and power point presentation on “The Art of Landscape Photography” covering the aesthetics of photography and technical aspects of camera functions. The workshop features approximately 10 hours in the field with 3-hour sessions beginning each day in the predawn and in the afternoons until twilight. Ronald has an intimate knowledge of these regions and designs an itinerary based on habitat, tides and weather. Walking distances will vary from roadside vantage points to moderate trail hikes.

Complimenting the field experience will be 6 – 8 hours of classroom time where we will meet each day for an open dialogue covering subjects from capture to post processing – Lightroom and Photoshop. The digital age has considerably enhanced our ability to teach. Individual instruction, viewing images and group critiques to evaluate results is done in an environment that seeks to help you build confidence in your creative and technical skills and become a better photographer.

 

 

Bio

R o n a l d  W i l s o n

The award-winning nature photographer Ronald Wilson has devoted decades to photographing the New England landscape from Land’s End in Provincetown at the tip of the cape to the eastern most point in Maine at West Quoddy Head State Park in Lubec.

“What keeps me going is knowing that the world of light and shadow will always be new with things not seen before, waiting to be discovered”.

With a background in art ( BFA- Massachusetts of Art), he has always sought to bring the sensibility of a painter to his work. Recently, his photography was chosen by the Cape Cod National Seashore for exhibit in the Salt Pond Visitors Center as part of their “Perspective Series” presenting work that captures the essence of Cape Cod.

His dramatic landscape images have been widely exhibited in one person and group shows and many of his images have been featured on the cover of Cape Cod Life magazine. He is a gallery artist in the South Shore Art Center and the Plymouth Art Center. His studio/gallery in Plymouth.  www.rwilsonphoto.com
