Join Kim Kelly on a walk-about around the beautiful and historic streets of downtown Annapolis as the city celebrates the decades old tradition of May Day.
Dating back to 1956, the Garden Club of Old Annapolis began a beautification project of adorning homes and businesses with floral baskets and creative arrangements annually on the first day of May, and the tradition continues to this day.
As we stroll around the historic streets, we will have an abundance of photographic opportunities to practice our compositional techniques, explore depth of field, and learn to work in a variety of lighting conditions.
Recommended Equipment – Digital camera, zoom lens with a focal range of 24-105mm, polarizing filter (if available).
COVID Safety Practices: Masks are optional.

Class Limit: 8
Instructor: Kim Kelly
Kim’s interest in photography took root when she received her first camera, a Canon AT-1 (film) as a college graduation gift and she has continued to shoot ever since. She eventually migrated over to digital technology and her passion for capturing images continued to grow. Kim served as the Field Trip Director for three years for the Digital Photography Club of Annapolis and serves as the club’s liaison to the Maryland Photography Alliance.
She currently makes her home near Annapolis and considers the Chesapeake Bay region, with its extensive shorelines and historic maritime richness, her playground. Through her images, she hopes to invoke a curiosity in the viewer to ask questions about her subjects. She enjoys taking them places they would not normally go themselves. Many of her works feature old workboats or nautical treasures found in and around the tributaries of the Bay. She is also passionate about photographing nature, wildlife, landscapes, travel, and architecture, etc.
Kim’s works have been displayed in local Annapolis businesses, been in juried shows and have been in print in several publications including Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources 2019 Calendar, MarinaLife and the cover of the Tidewater Times. She has had several solo exhibitions in the area as well. You can see her images adorning the walls of several commercial & residential properties in the area.
