COVID-19 precautions/protocols

The safety and comfort of the group is very important to us. We will follow the current CDC guidelines for sanitization, masks and social distancing. Therefore, all participants that choose to register for this workshop are agreeing to follow those guidleine and protocols, throughout the duration of the workshop. All particpants must provide proof of vaccination.


Description: Spring is a great time to be at Chincoteague! This workshop will cover how to think conceptually and create abstracts of common subjects to challenge the viewer's perceptions. We will create abstract art with flowing water and photograph ocean views, beach scenes, patterns and textures in the sand, marshes and plant life. You can expect to see and possibly photograph many different bird species that return to the island in the spring. There may be opportunities to photograph the fabled Chincoteague ponies, Sika Deer, and other wildlife that inhabits the island.

The workshop includes instructional presentations that will inspire and explain how to make creative and beautiful photographs at this location. There will be plenty of field instruction that will cover techniques like capturing and freezing motion, long exposures and other creative techniques. A constructive image feedback session of the participant's photographs will complete the workshop.
