Photography Workshop

April 5, 6 & 7, 2019

Cindy Wilson Photography

When I think of Block Island in the offseason, I conjure up images of bare trees, stonewalls

and cottages perched on hillsides. My experience in photographing in black and white on Block

Island goes back to the 1980's, nostalgic images of stark landscapes and

weatherbeaten architecture, on medium format  Tri-X film. Today, the wet darkroom has

happily been replaced with my computer and digital camera.


I invite you to share my love of photography and Block Island for a three day workshop, April

5, 6 &, 2019. For this event, I have secured a private home on the island for visitors (islanders

will want the comfort of their own beds), scrumptious catered meals and an itinerary full of

lessons and on site photography.

In this workshop you will learn black and white settings on your camera, seeing light, shadow

and tones in black and white, the use of black and white as metaphor and the post processing

steps necessary to process a well crafted black and white image.


Cost per person with lodging and meals $675

Cost per person for tuition alone $275

Included in the tuition:

Lessons, on-site instruction, discussion and critique

For visitors: lodging in a private home, mouth watering catered meals, transportation

Meals are also available to island photographers

What you need to bring:

A camera capable of photographing in RAW mode

A laptop computer with software for RAW conversion (optional)

The workshop is limited to 8 people

Registration is on a first come first served basis

Deadline for registration: March 21, 2019
