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!
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!
