Down East & The Bold Coast

October 11-14, 2018

Summary:

Want to experience the real Maine Coast, none of the frills or trappings of tourism? Then that is Down East! We will start in Lubec Maine–the northern most town on the coast of Maine, from there we will work our way south exploring as many of the nooks and crannies along the way that we have time for. Our subjects will be as diverse as the landscape, ranging from rugged bold coast to quaint lobster villages and inlets. We will explore the art of travel photography and how to find and discover the best photographic opportunities.

Join us for a photographic adventure of a lifetime.

Instruction:

This workshop is primarily a field workshop, there will be a classroom session at the of the workshop to review images. During this workshop you will learn techniques that will give your images pizzazz and impact. We will explore landscape techniques from  mastering the grand landscape, using filters for creative effects, to  perfecting the intimacy of close up photography. You will learn how to; deal with extreme lighting conditions,  using natural light and much more. Instructor John Gregor is known for his patience and individual attention during these tour/workshops. Throughout the workshop there are demonstrations on a variety of camera techniques. John is always working the group–checking in to see if you have questions or need help with a composition or filtering question. This individual attention is what keeps ColdSnap Clients coming back time and time again. Camera technique, subject approach, and composition will be the emphasis of this workshop.

Location:

This workshop is located from Lubec, Maine to Schoodic Point near Winter Harbor.

Sample Itinerary:

Specific locations are chosen on the day of the shoot, this is to make sure that light conditions match the location where we are shooting. Typically we will shoot sunrise and sunset with shoots during the day at specific locations. Rising early and shooting late can take a toll so ample time is given during the middle of the day 3 for relaxation or a nap.
