Annapolis celebrates the holidays in grand style and considered one of America’s best towns for the holidays by Travel and Leisure Magazine. Join us and walk the cobblestone streets of this historic town and enjoy the decked out town in all its finery. Decorated wreaths on brightly painted doorways and the boats along the marina will bring the creative holiday spirit behind the lens.
This class is suitable for anyone interested in improving their photography skills. We’ll discuss the concept of purposeful photography and begin building a strong portfolio of holiday themed images for perhaps your own holiday cards.
We’ll enjoy the lovely late afternoon light as well as a little night photography shooting through twilight.
Class Limit: 10
