2016 PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP ON CAPE COD:
Nude in Landscape Workshop 
Karin Rosenthal, Instructor
Friday, June 17- Monday, June 20, 2016
Cape Cod National Seashore;  Class meets in Truro house

Working out of a private house in Truro, the class will gather at noon on Friday and end at 5PM on Monday.  We will live and work in the exceptionally beautiful National Seashore area.  In daily shoots in ponds, dunes, and woods, students will learn to identify locations and qualities of light that illuminate their personal style.  If you have never worked with models or photographed nudes in the landscape, this class will introduce you to a new world: combining the established genres of nude and landscape photography offers a larger whole with fresh emotional and conceptual possibilities.  You will deal with the practical concerns of posing and directing models as you collaborate with them to create unique images.  There will be daily critiques and discussions.  Maximum of 9 students.

Workshop Fee: $595 (4 days)
Models Fee: to be determined later
Rooms to be reserved independently.  A few rooms are available in the Truro house.  The Truro Motor Inn also offers rooms at special discounted rates during the workshop.

 

2016 PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP IN VERMONT:
The Landgrove Inn is a charming and comfortable New England Inn known for its great setting, gracious hospitality and wonderful food.  The venues for shooting are numerous, both at the inn and in the area: a pond, swimming pool, rushing streams, and large fields.  Horses, lakes, beautiful gardens, and woodlands are also nearby.  There are a variety of public spaces where we gather for discussions and to edit and view work. Peruse the website listed below to see more and learn about the Inn's history. 

Tom Checchia, who owns The Landgrove Inn with his wife, Maureen, offers discounted Inn prices for people taking workshops there. Sunday through Thursday nights must be booked to take the workshop, but additional nights through the weekend will be available at the same price. Many students prefer to stay Friday night for a relaxed wind-down after our exhibit.

Some comments from students at the June 2015 Cape Workshop
"Karin Rosenthal is a wonderful photography workshop teacher. Karin is very supportive yet demanding; she encourages everyone’s unique style and best work. Karin’s aesthetic opinions are most helpful in tuning one's photographic style, and she has a wealth of technical information. Her female and male models are very experienced and help students envision their ideas.  I highly recommend Karin’s workshop." ~Lee Post

"I do think the Outer Cape is a fantastic place to shoot. Best takeaway for me was looking for the post-crop image before you shoot and how to work effectively with models." ~Richard Dana

"I really loved the workshop. It was exciting, energetic, and packed with creative experiences. [Karin's workshop] imparted an esthetic of compositional refinement that will serve me well in crafting my pictures...[and] has become my guide to clarifying and honing my creative thought process." ~Ralph Mercer

Comments from Former Students :

"Not all great photographers are good teachers, but Karin is. What I like about Karin most is her way of working very closely and in depth with each person in a workshop. Her crits are the best I have ever experienced—detailed and informative. She is very forthright in her feedback which is what every really good student craves, but she is also supportive as she guides you into new areas and helps you see beyond the habits that might be blocking artistic progress."
-Thomas Mikelson

"Taking a workshop with Karin Rosenthal is a privilege..an experience for all fine art photographers...in all of my 20 years as a photographer and taking many, many workshops I
have never learned as much as from Karin...her keen eye and artistic approach to a subject separates her from other teachers.
-Jean Germain

"The workshop I took with Karin in 2001 was the best three-week course I had ever taken in four days."
-Michael Seif

"The setting, the group, the mentoring, the models, the food, the spirited discussions, the insightful and knowledgeable input from all, all exceeded my expectations...what a uniquely great learning experience!"  -2009 Workshop Student
