Workshop Description


For this workshop, we will be photographing to Fort Adams in Newport Rhode Island. This is a great one day long workshop exploring all the areas and unique cavernous rooms that Fort Adams has to offer. We will be led by a Fort Adams Guide that will provide us access to areas that are not available to the general public. It is a great opportunity to learn how to think outside the box in choosing how to shoot in very diverse lighting conditions that the Fort has to offer.


Our course is intended for the photographer that wishes to improve their skills shooting indoors with long exposure with light coming into rooms in a singular and multiple directions. We will be covering the following:

  • Metering techniques for the very unique and diverse lighting conditions in the different rooms in the Fort

  • How to use reflected light to you advantage

  • How to use shadows to create impact in your images

  • How to choose the right lens to get the best results for pano stiching

  • When and how to use very long exposures longer than 30 seconds

  • Lens Selection

  • How to shoot for maximum depth of field using hyper focal distance techniques

  • How to Expose in any given lighting situation; very long exposures and short exposures in the same blended image.

  • Exposure for color or B&W

This is intended for the photographer that wants to improve their skills with shooting indoors with natural light and multi directional reflected light from outdoors.  

  • Manual Mode – Control your camera 

    • How to change your ISO.

    • How to change your shutter speed.

    • How to change Aperture.

  • In this training, we will show you:

    • How to manually or auto focus to get the best results.

    • Photographing to stich images together to give a pano view with various lenses

The following equipment is recommended

    • Tripod – Required for long exposure and stitching portion of training

    • Shutter release (Cable or wireless)– You can use a delay mode but that will be cumbersome and time consuming for you. If you shoot past your camera’s standard exposure length capability (I.E Bulb Mode) you will need a cable release and a method to time you exposures. I.E watch or phone app with timer

  • Your intermediate lens and one or two more to capture as wide an angle and as telephoto as you have in your kit.
