Wave and Wildlife Photography Workshop

Capturing motion is something a camera does exceedingly well. With the right settings, we can actually see what our eyes cannot, freezing motion in a fraction of a second or blurring motion to emphasize the passage of time. These techniques are often used to shoot waves and wildlife where shutter speed is the key to capture movement. This workshop will begin in the classroom where we will learn techniques to do both and then we will go out to a beach to try our hands at the skills we’ve learned. Please bring a snack for the afternoon, dress in layers as temps will drop, and bug spray is encouraged.

Instructor bio:
Susan Simon spent nearly forty years teaching middle school English and American history, most of it in Barnstable. She credits her middle school students with developing her sense of humor, skill at thinking on her feet, and her ability to refrain from taking herself too seriously. Now primarily a fine art photographer, Susan’s work has been exhibited at the Cape Cod Art Center where she is a juried member, at Cotuit Center for the Arts, the Creative Arts Center in Chatham, The Plymouth Center for the Arts, and at the Griffin Museum of Photography. Her work has also been exhibited at the Cahoon Museum of American Art, and the Moose Hill Audubon Gallery in Sharon
