ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Located ten miles off the coast, the Isles of Shoals are a group of nine small islands, once a popular retreat for artists and writers. Explore and photograph the historical beauty of these islands as you stroll Star Island, practicing new techniques and enjoying lectures on digital cameras, composition, creativity and digital editing. Afternoon critiquing sessions allow you see how your photography skills have improved as the week goes by. This program is enriching for both beginners and those with moderate experience with digital photography. Bring your “point & shoot” or advanced digital camera, the camera manual and spare batteries.



Highlights

• Photograph the islands that have inspired artists throughout the ages, while learning about lenses, filters, resolution and imaginative composition.
• Choose subjects from among the sea and sky as you photograph the Isles’ historic buildings and stark granite ledges.
• Explore the 400 year history of the hauntingly beautiful Isles of Shoals through a series of fascinating historical photographs in the evenings.

Program Notes
