The constantly shifting conditions created by weather, construction, bird flight patterns and changing light offer many opportunities to create a new body of work on the dynamic border between water and land. In this course, students photograph waterways in their area during magical times of transition, such as twilight and dawn, and explore a variety of vantage points, including sites on shore and from boats, piers and bridges. Class sessions include discussion and critique of student work, presentation of techniques, and the viewing of inspirational photographs by historical and contemporary photographers.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.

For the first class please have ready 5 to 10 jpegs to share with the class. Please size them at no more than 2000 pixels long dimension and include your name in the title of the jpeg. I will ask you to email them to the workshop's Teaching Assistant when we get closer to the first day of the workshop. These can be photographs you take of different scenes - ideally including a waterway - taken at twilight, night or dawn. If you're photographing in low light for the first time, try photographing in places with different types of light sources - some natural and some artificial. Please learn how to set your camera to manual settings so that you can have greatest mastery over controlling the exposure of the photograph.
