I’m in Acadia National Park this week leading the 5 day Autumn Adventure workshop in beautiful Acadia National Park, and our first day got off to a great start. The weather forecast wasn’t promising at all, but you can never underestimate mother nature. At both sunrise and sunset, we were fortunate to get great light at just the right moments, and the students worked on taking advantage of those fleeting moments in nature.
Between our morning and evening shoots, I spend around 2 hours working with students on optimizing their images in Lightroom, then give a presentation on different aspects of landscape photography including composition, working with light, and the elements of visual design. During our field work students get practical and hands on use of these important and fundamental concepts, and I often try and challenge them with specific exercises meant to help them grow as photographers.
We’ve got 4 more days to go, and I’ll try to update the blog with photos and more info during the next few days.
