Photograph a Bucolic Landscape and Vineyards Outside of Annapolis
Annapolis is one of the prettiest towns in the US and is the capital of Maryland, known as the Sailing Capital of the World. Since it was first settled in 1649, the commercial and social life of this beautiful small city has been centered on its picturesque harbor, which is also a major tourist attraction.
This photo Safari, led by professional photographer Eddie Arrossi, will discover the beauty of the State Capital and other historic buildings on State Circle, a ramble around City Dock, a walk up Main Street, and a foray across Spa Creek into Eastport, with its vistas of downtown Annapolis, the Naval Academy, and the Chesapeake Bay, all bathed in afternoon light.
Eddie will go over understanding your camera and techniques for architectural photography to take advantage of the historically significant buildings you’ll visit such as the Maryland State House and St.Anne’s Church. Eddie will also lead you to lots of opportunities for abstracts, use of F stops for blurred or sharpened backgrounds, closeups, and other creative resources. You’ll be pointing your lenses at things like intricate bow carvings, flags and nautical pennants, and nautical rope, carelessly tangled or carefully coiled, giving you techniques for capturing unique images, skills that will make all your future travel photography more interesting and colorful.
