2021 Bold Coast of Maine Workshops
Aug 8 - 11, Time: see website
All workshops are 3 nights and end on the morning of the 4th day.
All dates are equally good for the workshop in terms of angles of the Milky Way and the unpredictable weather.
August 8 - 11 (Sunday 1pm - Wednesday early AM) -- Only 3 Spots Left!
DESCRIPTION & LOCATION
Come explore the real Down East coast of Maine! Join professional photographer Adam Woodworth along the Bold Coast of Maine in Lubec, a small fishing village with a big heart and artist community, which also happens to be the easternmost town in the US. With lighthouses, rugged ocean cliffs, dark night skies, bald eagles, seals, and whales, this is an amazing place to photograph!
This is a landscape photography workshop, with a focus on landscape astrophotography with the Milky Way as conditions permit. This is the coast of Maine after all and clear skies are not guaranteed, but these workshops are scheduled around the new moon cycle so that we have moonless dark skies at night. This area is also a great place for dramatic sunrises and sunsets, with lobster boats, lighthouses, harbors, and rugged coastline as our foreground. There are also opportunities to photograph wildlife including bald eagles, seals, porpoise, whales, and puffins.
The Canadian border is still closed and I don't expect it to re-open in time for any scheduled workshops, so we won't be able to visit Campobello Island.
You will get an overview of everything I know about landscape photography and astrophotography and I will provide personal attention to each person throughout the class.
