Maine Coast: Intermediate - September 8th 2019

from 300.00

Join us for the intermediate level of our 1-day workshops. This is perfect for those that are comfortable using their cameras and want to learn more advanced techniques. For this course, we’ll meet bright and early to cover some of the techniques students will be learning, followed by a sunrise shoot on the rugged Maine coast. This workshop also includes one hour of online one-on-one post-processing instruction via Skype.
This is the perfect course for students who have already taken our
Basic: 1-Day Workshop.
(Note: Due to time constraints we will not be covering exposure or focus blending. For those, consider taking one of our
multi-day workshops or booking us for a One-on-one Post-Processing Lesson.)

Other items to bring:

  • Bug Spray (Maines state bird is the mosquito, just saying)

  • Extra snacks (We will have some, but it never hurts to have more.)

  • Extra Socks and closed toe shoes. (As happens often when shooting around water, your feet will likely get wet feet and nobody likes spending days in wet shoes and socks. If you have hip waiters, these can help in some scenarios. Also, while sandals and flats can be comfortable, they are horrible for getting around on slippery rocks, so we highly recommend waterproof closed-toe shoes or boots.)

    * If you have any questions about how to prepare for your expedition or what gear to bring please feel free to
    contact us.

Activity Level
While most of the locations are readily accessible from parking lots, there will be some moving on steep and often slippery rocks to get to the best angles as well as short hikes, requiring some moderate physical ability to access.

Rain Date
The rain date for this workshop is September 16th, 2018. Moving the workshop is entirely at the discretion of our expedition leaders.
