While still photography is “my thing,” I’m beginning to enjoy creating videos of favorite places, people and pets. Here’s a one-minute video of  Trunk River which connects Oyster Pond (on which we reside) with the Vineyard Sound. While the river is tiny, its role is huge since it ensures the health of the pond and makes it possible for herring to return and spawn each year.

Winter is a great time to catch up on projects and goals. After several people asked me last year if I offered training for beginners, I’m thrilled to be able to finally say “yes!” I’ll be teaching a Basic Photography class on Thursdays, April 22 to May 27, from 6 to 8:30 PM in Woods Hole. The class is for beginners who want to learn how to use their digital SLR camera to capture well-exposed, artistic images more consistently.

Besides essential camera functions (aperture, shutter, etc.), we’ll cover creative photography concepts, including lighting, perspective, depth of field, and composition. Through weekly lectures, demonstrations, handouts, assignments, and photo critiques in a friendly and supportive setting, I’m sure students will have lots of fun learning how to confidently move beyond automatic mode. The current class schedule and training info is here.

One of the benefits of residing in Falmouth is having our very own NPR radio station right here in Woods Hole. WCAI staffers took a 15 minute break today from their fundraiser to participate in a portrait shoot under the beech tree.


WCAI, a service of WGBH Boston, is at http://capeandislands.org where anyone from around the globe can listen online. Or tune in locally to 90.1 FM.

It’s a fine day when music, photography and sunny weather on Cape Cod intersect. Yesterday we had a fun photo shoot for Solstice Singers, a Renaissance a cappella group I’ve sung with during past years.
