CAPTURE THE BEAUTY of the Gardens, ARCHITECTURE AND HISTORY
Spring is the perfect time to be in Charleston to explore the gardens and historic district and magnificent plantations & more as the emerging color palette lifts our souls. We’ll explore and photograph the magic of Charleston – from hidden alleyways, gardens and graveyards of Old Charleston to coastal treasures and architectural icons – but with new eyes.
A visit to Charleston is not complete without a visit to Magnolia Gardens & Plantation as well as others such as Middleton Place and Drayton Hall. Each of these locations offer unique views into history and nature. We’ll work in time to immerse in the wash of color and let a trip back in time seep into our bones. Even if you’ve been to these places before, you’ll want to get the iconic shots out of your system and cut loose to capture images that are unique to you.
We’ll also spend time at the Arthur Ravenel Bridge for the classic sunset image and work the scenes at Shem Creek, awash with coastal marshes, birds and area shrimpers. The Battery on the waterfront of the Charleston Harbor, along with the cobblestone streets, grand homes with side porches, and historic churches and churchyards hold treasures to be discovered. No matter what your favorite subject, Charleston and the surrounding area is a mecca for photographers in color, infrared, landscape, macro and abstracts.
This workshop is designed for photographers of all levels. You’ll have the opportunity to work your lenses from wide angle to macro and telephoto, depending on where your creative vision takes you. Jamie and Art will work with you in the field and share techniques to help you reach your objective with images that you see.
STRETCH YOUR CREATIVE MUSCLES TO CAPTURE ICONIC PLACES IN NEW WAYS
Rounding out exploration of awesome places includes a visit to Magnolia Cemetery, one of the best for intriguing headstone, magnificent live oaks as well as coastal birds and other local wildlife. There will be more locations on the list to fill your mind and heart with wonderful memories and you learn to see differently from two photographers who approach their image making in unique and different ways. All the while we’ll work to capture magical light in interesting places.
Part of this workshop celebrates the beauty of a new season and bursts of colors. The other part focuses on subjects that show their age with grace and style. We plan for plenty of time to explore each location and exercise our creative muscles. If you’re an infrared shooter, or would like to be, these subjects are wonderful for that style of shooting, and we’re here to help you move forward in both the visible and invisible light arenas. If you have a Lensbaby (or two or three), the Charleston locations are primed and ready for your interpretations and creativity. We have three full days of photography, time to learn some post-processing techniques and opportunities to share images from our time together.
