Baltimore's Mount Vernon & Peabody Library Photo Workshop

  • Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary 409 Cathedral Street Baltimore, MD, 21201 United States (map)

This workshop focuses on Baltimore’s historic and beautiful Mount Vernon Neighborhood. We’ll photograph Baltimore’s Washington Monument, the adjacent parks and their unique marble and bronze sculptures, and the surrounding buildings in the Mount Vernon neighborhood. We’ll also practice abstract photography, learn to see scenes are shapes, textures, light and shadows. To top it off, you’ll also have a lesson in outdoor portraiture.

A highlight of this workshop is to photograph the interior of the Peabody Library (1878) one of the most beautiful in the world, described as a “cathedral of books.” Uniquely, we have arranged to have after-hours access to the Library, so there won’t be people walking through your photos.

More than a tour, this an architectural photography workshop, led by TWO professional photographers who know all the best angles for picture taking in each venue and who will cover topics including:

• How to properly use your digital camera on a tripod to make the best use of your camera’s and lens’ features (it’s different than back in the film days!)

• How to take great architectural photos indoors and outdoors

• How to do a custom white balance to adjust for the mix of daylight and artificial lighting

• How to deal with indoor lighting extremes by taking multiple photos on tripod (HDR photography.)

• Hands-on instruction and critique of images and their composition while they are being taken, so that you can make corrections immediately

• Demonstrate and have you practice outdoor portraiture in the beautiful surroundings at Mount Vernon.

This workshop is for ALL skill levels, including beginners - Steve and Fred will show you everything you need to know to make compelling images at these sites.
