Ronald Wilson has nearly 30 years experience photographing the New England coast and beyond. A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in painting, his interest in photography began when he purchased a 35 mm camera in 1980, soon replaced by a 4×5 view camera. From the beginning he maintained his own color darkroom where he produced exhibition quality prints using the Cibachrome dye bleach process. He moved out of the darkroom in 2008 and into digital photography. For 8 years his gallery & studio has been located in downtown Plymouth.
Bob Bergeron, after graduating from the Rhode Island School of photography, became a staff instructor at the Winona School of Professional Photography in Indiana. In 1984 he opened Tri Color Imaging Lab in New Bedford which has served photographers in 50 states for 34 years with traditional, optical, hybrid and digital output.
USING THE COMPONENTS ESSENTIAL TO LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY
- How to think visually using the elements of color, shape, line, texture and pattern.
- How to use lighting in a way that best reveals the subject matter.
- How to compose an image from the ground up using elements of design.
- How to appreciate the expressive potential of the natural world.
The workshop will begin Friday evening with an orientation and presentation of materials.
The workshop will feature approximately 10 hours in the field with 3 hour sessions beginning each day an hour before sunrise and Saturday afternoon through sunset. We will explore the south shore from barrier beaches and salt marshes to woodland ponds and cranberry bogs. The workshops are designed for those interested in nurturing and exploring their creative vision.
Complimenting the field experience will be 6-8 hours of classroom time that include individual instruction, viewing images and group critques to evaluate results.
Maximum of 12 photographers of all levels from beginner to advanced are welcome.
