The eighth and final Annapolis Photography workshop of 2018 was as close to perfect as they get. The weather was ideal - light winds and a few clouds in the sky. I had six photographers onboard from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
Our first stop after leaving Sandy Point was the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. We photographed the spans of the bridge silhouetted with the dawn light behind them and the charter boat fleet fishing the rock piles on the western edge of the shipping channel. After the sun was above the horizon, we headed south to photograph crabbers working at the mouth of the Severn River. As the light continued to get brighter, we ran the boat down south towards Thomas Point where we photographed the lighthouse, two more crab potters and the cargo ships anchored offshore.
When the light became too harsh to shoot, we headed back to the dock and the group reconvened at my downtown Annapolis studio. In the studio, we did a quick seminar on editing, retouching and printing.
