Mystic Seaport & Museum

 Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, is an active living history museum that preserves and celebrates America’s seafaring heritage from the 19th century. The museum includes historic ships as well as a working ships smithy and a barrel making cooperage. There are numerous authentic building in this Seaport Village that include churches, living quarters, ships chandleries. Apothecaries,  Taverns and more to provide you with an authentic coastal seaport experience from the 19th century. They also have an active wooden ship building and repair facility that can be toured and photographed.

 

For this workshop we will be visiting as many of the sites as possible. This is a great two day workshop at the Museum where we will guide you with lens selection, composition, metering, panoramic stitching techniques. Be sure to bring your tripod for exterior shots in the Museum.

  We will have instruction in post process techniques following our 1st day of the workshop at our hotel. Software instructions will include Lightroom, Photoshop, Topaz and Luminosity Masking in an effort to help you with your post process to get the most out of the images captured during the day.

 

As with all of our workshops it is intended to the photographer that wishes to improve their shooting skills in terms of:

  • Shot selection

  • Lens selection

  • Compositional height and angles

  • Use of Filters

  • Long Exposures

  • Exposure Blending Techniques

  • Metering techniques and above all have fun

  • 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.

    Our workshops are designed with a hands on approach to give you the best learning environment.

  • As with all of my workshops I do not shoot along with you but rather I am there as you teacher and guide.
