ICP Photography Workshop: Photographing Beachscapes and Light

Instructed by ICP Faculty Lynn Saville

Saturday, August 17 | 4-6 PM | $50 ($45 for SAC & ICP Members)

Light on the beach can be a dramatic experience as the changing light and weather conditions interact with the distant horizon to create a dramatic backdrop, as sand, water, air, and sky set a mysterious stage for a variety of photographic subjects. In this two-hour, one-day workshop instructed by ICP Faculty Lynn Saville, students develop their power of observation to create stunning photographs at the beach in Southampton. We photograph people engaged in a variety of activities, changes in the water and sky, and more. Participants also learn techniques of composition and changing light colors and contrasts.

Attendees will meet at Southampton Arts Center and then move to beach location. Rides will be available for those who do not have a Village Parking Permit.

Some Suggestions from Lynn:

  • You can use digital or analog cameras, cell phones, Polaroid, etc.
  • It is recommended to bring a plastic bag to put the camera in to to protect it in case it sand is blowing or any droplets of water are in the air
  • If your camera has a sunshade, it’s a good idea to bring it
  • Bring an extra battery, fully charged if you can
  • Make sure you have space for lots of photos on your memory card – (or extra film)

If you are a SAC or ICP member, please call the Education Office at ICP to register at 212.857.0001.
