Crystal Coast in Winter with Jamie Konarski Davidson

In the winter, the Crystal Coast of North Carolina is one of the few places where you can shoot sunrise and sunset over the ocean, and you’ll be there for it. Based in Emerald Isle, NC, oceanfront, we’ll photograph the coastal treasures of winter. The coast is rich with natural and nautical history – live oaks, salt marshes and tidal creeks, seaports, shrimp boats and other coastal and cultural subjects that make this area unique. During this workshop you’ll experience these and other amazing sights. Learn techniques for capturing scenes at the edges of the day, long exposures, capturing a sense of place and more.

Join Jamie Konarski Davidson and Nicole Deen and immerse yourself in a weekend of photography with oceanfront rooms, plenty of hands-on instruction in the field and classroom time to finetune what you’ve captured. Learn practical shooting techniques and creative approaches to simple scenes and how to work with the light you have. Winter is the quieter season. The Crystal Coast awaits.
