Southern New England Lighthouse Photo Workshop

Lerro Productions Presents:
Southern New England Lighthouse Photo Workshop
July 16-20, 2018

Connecticut and Rhode Island offer a variety of different lighthouses such as brick towers, spark plugs and intergraded houses. Join us as we photograph a number of these lighthouses by both land and sea. During our trip, we will charter two boats; one out of New London, CT and a second boat out of Point Judith, RI. Combined we will photograph over 20 lighthouses out at sea. We will also photograph lighthouses at night. We might even venture into Cape Cod.

There are only 2 spots left on the boat. If there is a high demand, we can get a 2nd boat. To sign up, please email. Do not mail a check until you confirm with me first.

Workshop Fee – $675.00

Finalists for “Reflection / Unusual Perspective”

Thanks to all the Lighthouse Society photographers who submitted images for the “Refection / Unusual Perspective” category of our 2019 Calendar Contest. After careful review, we are pleased to announce the five finalists.

New_Canal_LA_2018_by_David_Zapatka
New Canal, LA, 2018, by David Zapatka, who noted “We had to rig a large piece of material on an elongated (12 foot) pole and the lighthouse keeper held it in place to shield the foreground cove from harsh light coming from a bulkhead streetlight. Without doing this, the light prevented us from getting the reflection on the water. I’d photographed here the night before and was frustrated by the bright lamp. The keeper’s solution was the long pole usually used to retrieve floating items off the water.”

Saginaw River Range, MI, 2016, by Russ Katje, who noted the photo was taken from a kayak.
Boston_Harbor_MA_2012_by_Rick_Schneider
Boston Harbor, MA, 2012, by Rick Schneider, who noted “There was a beautiful reflecting pond opportunity, but I had to get down on my knees, low to the ground, to catch this reflection.”
