Annapolis: Transcendental Photography: Elevating the Everyday

"Taking something mundane, and seeing something transcendent in it is the high ground of photography," says master photographer Sam Abell.

On this unique Safari, we'll help you to slow down and really see in order to unlock your ability to photographically elevate the mundane to the magnificent.  Everyday items and familiar places can offer powerful images in exchange for a little work, imagination, and practice.

Traces of ivy pulled off of a painted wall. A really close-in shot of an ornamental cabbage. A shadow cast at just the right angle. 

For this kind of photography, the brand of camera isn't important. Point-and-shoot versus DSLR versus mirrorless isn't important. How much you spent on your equipment isn't important.   Just look... see... isolate.

Great photos are everywhere, but most people pass them by every day, unnoticed. This safari will help you see those missed images and start you on your way to a new realm of photography.

This workshop is for ALL skill levels, including beginners - we will show you everything you need to know to make compelling images as we walk around beautiful downtown Annapolis.

US Naval Academy Photo Workshop

BONUS! All participants will receive a gift card worth $25 towards prints and other photo products at Nations Photo Lab 

We'll tour and photograph the grounds and selected buildings of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. You’ll see some of the best photo locations and angles in "The Yard," as the campus of the Naval Academy is known to its Midshipmen. At the same time, we’ll also give you a running commentary on the history of the Naval Academy and the architectural significance of the buildings you'll visit.

Also, as an added value, you'll be able to send us your photos (or links to them) from this workshop for evaluation and feedback. I'll make comments and suggestions, and in many cases, do some photo editing on your photos to demonstrate how to make a good image even better. 

If are new to photography or could use a refresher on topics like f-stops, depth of field, basic composition, etc, I will conduct an optional, free pre-tour session on those topics 45 minutes before we start the tour for anyone registered.
