When: September 15th and 16th 2016. 

Martha’s Vineyard, MA Seascape seminar! The sunsets in September are spectacular!

  • Sunset shooting on the 15th and sunrise on the 16th. We will cover composition, lens choice, filters, HDR, time exposures, sand safety and working with a tripod in moving sand. After shooting at sunrise we will head to a location to cover editing while having some breakfast. I will be covering editing techniques for seascapes and also how to edit them for best results.
  • Photoshop, NIK plugins and understanding of basic use of Photoshop helpful. You will also be added to my secret editing with NIK group. This is a small group of very talented photographers using these editing techniques both in daily photography work and landscape work.
  • September 15th we will meet up at 4 pm at a central location depending on where everyone is staying to go over details, travel up to Aquinnah for sunset. Sunset is 6:50 pm that night. Bring a flash light for the walk back.
  • September 16th sunrise is at 6:25 am. We have a few choices, depending on weather. Final choice will be voted on by attendees at the end of the sunset session on the 15th.
