Chincoteague Workshop Report

The last workshop of the year was probably the best in terms of the light we had. All 3 days were a treat!

I have mentioned that Chincoteague remains one of my favorite locations to photograph. It's very challenging to switch from photographing the wildlife to a landscape and then a detail shot. Not to mention the ocean which is a lot of fun to photograph. You really need to know your camera gear to maximize the opportunities.

I made the next three photos the morning before the workshop started.

The first evening of the workshop was really a sign of what was to come. Other than the Snow Geese, we photographed some stunning reflections.

We spent some time on the beach working with the surf to create images of flowing water. I couldn't resist photographing the amazing texture and patterns in the sand.

There were plenty of opportunities to photograph details.

The group photographed several different species of birds.

The Snow Geese numbers were quite low compared to previous years. However, we did get fairly close and spent a good bit of time photographing them.

We also had some fun creating abstract images of the Snow Geese, using different techniques.

The group of workshop participants was a lot of fun and we tried to make the most of the wonderful light. Thanks to Suzanne, Deborah, Nancy, David, Dick, Warren, Scott, Gaurav and Dillard for making it a successful workshop.
