Back in the Northeast!
I recently returned from judging the annual Print Competition at the New Hampshire PPA in Laconia, NH. It was wonderful to see and judge some magnificent images! The following day I presented a three hour program titled “Compose Yourself and See the Light!” where I shared many techniques and ideas about light, composition, story telling and many motivational thoughts to get people out and see things differently! So many of my images were made in the Northeast!
I then headed to the lovely lobster fishing village of Rockport, Mass. to enjoy some coastal image making in one of my favorite locations in the country. Even though I have been going to Rockport for decades, my new friends that attended the NHPPA shared locations all around the area that I was not familiar with. It was magnificent, as was the weather, which most days reached the mid-70′s. What a treat after the northeast has endured a long winter season.
After two days in Rockport, I was joined by a group of local photographers for a day long workshop exploring HDR, Light, Composition and Time Lapse techniques. It was a ton of fun to share my favorite locations with new friends as we recorded the best of Rockport.
Once the class was over, I journeyed over to a magnificent little lighthouse to capture a late night star trail, all the while, enjoying the tranquil rhythm of the waves rolling in and out. Finding the North Star, I found a composition to balance the low level, little lighthouse lost in the never ending galaxies that we admire from afar.
I am working on dates to lead a workshop in “Photographing the Night Sky!” Stay tuned!
