Workshop Gods

Boathouse Still Life

The Workshop Gods were with me last weekend. The weather was stunning, never to be taken for granted on the tip of Point Reyes, and the spring wild flowers were lucious. The participants were strong photographers, and a socially compatible group—neither of which is a workshop given.

This workshop covered both improvised still life photography, like the grass in a vase shown against the background of the old Coastguard boathouse. The photo above is an example of simple still life photography using natural light and based on observation and placement, with beautiful afternoon sun coming through an antique window angled into a dusty room.

In terms of the outdoor macro flower photography—it was hard to miss with the carpets of flowers in a majestic landscape of rugged cliffs and ocean.
