Join our photography workshop on the dramatic Outer
Banks, a long, thin strip of barrier islands that protect the North Carolina
Coast. Preserved to a large extent by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore, it
is a visual feast of historic lighthouses spaced between long stretches of wild
beaches and pristine sand dunes.
The Outer Banks are part of our own back yard
that we know so well, and we will go to great locations where you can celebrate
your passion for photography, hone your seeing and imaging skills, and learn
about the magic of light to make wonderful photographs.
Who knows, you might
join the increasing number of photographers who have won awards with images they
have created in this workshop!
We'll be based in Nags Head, near all our locations, making it easier to get up for those early-morning shoots! Every day, the land- and sea-scapes take on a different look, depending upon the weather and time of day.
Each lighthouse, with its unique shape and pattern,
has its particular flash sequence, so even at night, or early in the morning, you'll know which
one you are seeing and photographing.
Surrounding the lighthouses are the salt marshes with their many varieties of reeds and
grasses, small skiffs dotting the estuaries, changing reflections, wildlife,
and gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.
Even in inclement weather, our locations are dramatic
against a stormy sky.
The National Seashore has many other interesting subjects — the patterns
of the sand dunes, sea oats and beach peas, and surf pounding the deserted beaches.
For those who want more time with Margo and Arnie, we offer the opportunity to scout and shoot with them before most of our domestic workshops. We limit this to two people per day who ride in the car with the instructors. During these days while Arnie and Margo do their own photography and final scouting for the workshop, there is also lots of individual instruction and discussions about photography.
If you have not already done so, be sure to check our FAQs for
questions you may have as well as for equipment and installed downloads you need
to bring to the workshop including, if necessary, the free, 30-day, trial versions
of Adobe and other imaging products.
You will also receive written instructions on the ins and outs of successfully and easily turning your favorite digital
images into beautiful prints straight out of the latest version of Lightroom using your own printer.
