Point Reyes: A Chimney Rock - Headlands Photo Retreat
NOTE: This class provides a very unique opportunity to stay at the historic Chief's House, and as such has a very limited capacity of 6 people. Register soon to reserve your spot!
Originally built for the officer in charge of the nearby Lifeboat Station, the Chief’s House at Chimney Rock offers grand vistas of Drakes Bay and the Point Reyes headlands. This weekend photo retreat will combine field and classroom presentations in one of the most stunning locations on the California coast.
This location-centric weekend photo retreat will focus on the area of the Point Reyes Headlands, Chimney Rock, the Lighthouse, and the Historic Lifeboat Station. The class incorporates guided shoots in the field and classroom presentations. The field sessions will focus on taking a visual assessment of subject and lighting conditions, or looking for the more subtle subject matter, and how best to photographically capture subjects through composition, use of camera settings, and lens selection. We will also spend time learning how to work on images after-capture, including editing and post-processing using programs like Lightroom and Photoshop. Class presentations will cover topics like developing strong personal vision and digital imaging. The workshop concludes with a photo critique and review of the work that was created over the weekend. The class will involve some short-distance light hiking over slightly uneven terrain.
