Your Digital Photo Academy instructor will help you to see a number of photogenic subjects in this charming community, known for its views of the Atlantic Ocean, long wooden piers, quaint Victorian structures and quirky street portrait ops.
For added benefits the session will include lessons on camera control operation during 3 separate lighting scenarios, beginning with daylight and moving to sunset. Shortly after the sun sets, comes what photographers call, “Blue Light,” when the clouds, if feeling generous, will appear in spectacular colors.
Your DPA Instructor will demonstrate and supervise techniques to cope with harsh sunlight on the beaches along the Atlantic Ocean, suggesting filters, camera settings, including ISO’s, f-stops and Shutter Speed.
Work with patterns and textures using the unending boardwalks along the ocean as subject matter or focus on a row of cabana changing booths. Catch environmental portraits on the beach of crowds of sun worshippers. Learn to master panning and shutter speed control to photograph a bicyclist or skateboarder zipping by. Direct your lens to the sidewalk diners as they sit together outside of a cafe for a meal or colorful ice cream dessert, including the pet pooch waiting for scraps.
Part of the 3 hour session will be devoted to a variety of demonstrations of composition techniques for different architectural perspectives while admiring the colorful homes and hotels, built centuries ago, that dot the shoreline and Main Street. A leading lines technique can entrance the viewers of your photographs as the scene bounces across the frame taking one’s eye along each uniquely shaped building. Take a worm’s eye view up close to the structure and low to the ground, pasting the building up against the dramatic sky for an eerie sensibility or step back a distance and position the building poised within adjacent trees and shrubberies to convey a picture perfect vacation scene.
