May 24 through 26, 2013
Yachats Oregon and surrounding area
Gregg Kerber and Craig Clark, Instructors
Immerse yourself in photography while experiencing a unique and rare opportunity to photograph sea creatures in their natural environment. Two to three times per year during a full moon phase, there are extreme low tides during daylight hours. The rock-lined shores in Yachats make it impossible to explore the sandy beaches below at ‘normal’ tide levels. Once the tide goes out – WAY out, the wonders of the sea are exposed.
Photography instruction and assistance will be provided in the field and tailored to individual needs with an emphasis on elements of visual design and how they are used to create the essence of an expressive image. Specific photography related assignments will be provided at many of the photo locations designed to challenge students.
About Yachats and the Surrounding Area
Yachats, pronounced YAH-hots, is derived from the Chinook Indian word, Yahuts, meaning dark waters at the foot of the mountain. Nestled between the lush forested mountains of the Coast Range and the lapping waves of the Pacific surf, the charming village of Yachats opens a window to the environment. It is the ideal place for discovery and photography.
Yachats, Yachats Covered Bridge, Waldport, Cape Perpetua, Devils Churn, Thor’s Well, Heceta Head Lighthouse, and much more.
