This past weekend was The Art of Landscape Photography with Ron Wilson and Bob Bergeron-Cape Cod workshop with the Cape Cod Art Association. We met at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth on Friday for three hours of introductions and classroom discussion on thinking visually and the art of seeing. After a fun night instruction and getting to know each other the students retired to their rooms for an early wake-up call.

Saturday started with a 4:15am call in the lobby of the hotel. From there we travelled to Quissett Harbor and The Knob at 4:30am to begin the four hour morning field session. We were treated to a beautiful sunrise with a sky that was overcast enough to be interesting, but that wasn’t just a gray blanket over the morning. At dawn as the sun broke through the clouds, it lit The Knob with dramatic side lighting.

Our next stop was Spohr Garden, a six-acre woodland garden located on Oyster Pond. In the spring the garden features thousands of daffodils. The winding grassy paths lead the way to many nautical artifacts Charles D. Spohr collected during his lifetime.

From 8:30 to 10:30 we broke for breakfast and “free” time.
At 11:00 we all met for individual instruction and general image review, students were instructed in the use of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and we held a group critique and review of selected images.
We met back in the hotel lobby for 4pm to journey out for the afternoon field session. Our first stop was Monument Beach and Phinney's Harbor. Monument beach is situated in a small harbor on Buzzard’s Bay. Then we moved to the Four Ponds Conservation Area in Bourne. This area features Shop Pong, Freeman Pond, Upper Pond and the Basin with wooded uplands, fresh water marshes and streams. Miles of trails encircle the ponds.
Also on the trail were Red Brook Pond and Harbor, Little Bay and Old Silver Beach. Old Silver Beach on Buzzard’s Bay features Herring Creek and a salt marsh.
The afternoon session ended around 8:30pm looking forward to a Sunday sunrise at 5:19am!
The Sunday schedule mirrored Saturday’s schedule with a morning session, break for breakfast and then individual instruction, then group critiques and reviews.
Sunday morning we arrived at Nobska Light at 4:45 am. A short walk from the Lighthouse is a boulder strewn beach facing east. With the exception of 3 fisherman we were the only ones there. We photographed through the pre dawn until the sun rose above a thin layer of cloud. We met for sunrise at Nobska Point, Woods Hole. The “Nobska Light,” was built in 1828 and sits on the east end of Woods Hole Harbor.

From there we visited a much different site at Bourne Farm. Dating from 1775, the 45-acre farm features fields, trails, woodlands and dry stone walls overlooking Crocker Pond. The still waters of Crocker Pond, the lichen covered stone walls and the barns and gardens in the soft light of this morning was a photo opportunity in waiting.

Our fine art printing process uses pigment based inks. Pigment printing processes have been utilized since the middle of the 19th century. The image stability of pigment printing is superior to that of any other method of printing. Pigment inks excel in permanence. A dye is molecularly soluble in its vehicle, but pigment is not. Pigment particles tend to be large enough to embed into the receiving substrate making them water-resistant. The particle nature of pigment inks ensures their archival superiority. A particle of pigment is less susceptible to destructive environmental elements than a dye molecule.
