Land & Sea – Photography Explorations with Sylvia Galbraith

September 16 @ 9:00 am - September 20 @ 4:00 pm

Course Description
Designed to take advantage of dramatic changes in weather and light during the fall season, this project-based workshop will introduce you to topics such as visual design, understanding light, developing a concept, critiquing, and more. Using the historic seaside town of St. Andrews as our base, we’ll explore the area’s dramatic tides, stunning landscapes, botanical gardens and village life in ways that will inspire and challenge you.
The week includes lectures and slide presentations, editing sessions, and individual critiques, with participants working towards developing a cohesive body of work. Time will be available for practical instruction in camera settings and photo editing, as well as discussions on black & white photography, colour theory, composition, exhibition and presentation methods, printing on fine art papers, or submitting work to galleries.
There will be two field trips during the week – the first on Tuesday evening, where we’ll explore the town and tidal flats, starting at sunset. Street lighting, reflections on water or buildings, and the rising full moon will provide our inspiration for this night photography session. The second field trip will take place early on Thursday morning, with an excursion to Minister’s Island to wander along the exposed shoreline with its unique geological features and sea creatures.
Participants are encouraged to register for the full 5-day program in order to gain the most from this series, however, we offer the option of taking the final 3 days* (Wed. to Fri. – intermediate to advanced photographers only). *Please note that online registration for the 3 day option is not available. Contact Sunbury Shores via email/telephone if you would like to register, the cost is $375.00 for the 3 day course option.
We love dramatic weather! Be prepared for shooting in all conditions… good rain gear, hiking shoes or boots, a hat and gloves are recommended.
