August in Maine, where the Atlantic meets the coast, is delightful. With sunny
and foggy days, you'll see the various moods of this craggy
area that Margo and Arnie love to photograph.
"Down East" Maine is an area known
for its dramatic rocky coast, pounding surf, wonderful lighthouses, and charming
fishing harbors and coves dotted with lobster boats.
And we mustn't forget the
famous Maine fir trees that add wonderful elements to the coastline.
Arnie will take you to areas where Winslow Homer, Andy Wyeth, and other artists
have painted for centuries.
We will be headquarted at an inn right on New Harbor within walking distance of our favorite fish shack. Bring along your spouse. significant
other, or friend, always welcome at our workshops and who instantly become part of our
As noted in the spring Maine workshops,
the Barefoot Contessa grew up sailing this area,
so knows it well and looks forward to introducing
you to her special haunts where you'll be able to
celebrate your passion for photography, hone your
seeing and imaging skills, and learn about the magic
of light to make wonderful photographs.
New Harbor is in the heart of an area that has produced
many of Margo's photographs that have been published in calendars,
travel magazines, and coffee-table books. After the workshop, plan on taking
an extra few days to explore this area on your own, return to places we have
taken you, and use your new-found knowledge to make more beautiful photographs.
As a special treat, Dave Robertson, who is teaching our Lightroom workshop in Colorado, will be joining us. While Dave will be a regular participant in this workshop, he has generously offered to help his fellow participants with Lightroom during our imaging sessions. This generous offer, however, should not be confused with a regular Lightroom workshop. For that, we offer regular and private Lightroom workshops (see below).
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.
We start out with some technical information before heading out for our first afternoon of photography. Our workshops include the following:
Maximum 6-to-1 ratio students to instructors
Opening wine-and-pizza reception;
Primer booklet to help you get started;
Early-morning and late-afternoon shoots;
Mid-day downloading of your images and processing with the latest version
Lots of individual instruction in both the field and classroom;
Daily critiques, both individual and group;
Discussions on various aspects of photography, including digital workflow; and
Lots of fun and frivolity throughout!
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.
