This tour is designed for anyone who has converted a digital camera to infrared. Ron Rosenstock will be showing prints and digital slide shows of before and after his processing of images. He will demonstrate post capture techniques of contrast control, toning, as well as using digital techniques that are similar to what used to be done in the film dark room. Ron’s goal will be to educate participants as to the unlimited possibilities of image making with an infrared camera.
But the beauty of this trip is in the place. Maine is such a truly special place to photograph. Ron has been vacationing in Vinalhaven for many years. It is very much an extension of his backyard, so you will have a great photographic and educational experience. Although Vinalhaven is not your characteristic Maine destination, it provides the most beautiful foggy mornings, ocean currents, old boat years and miles of unspoiled coastline. As long as the light is good, we try to keep busy photographing, but during mid-day we take a lunch break and travel to our next location. The days are long, so we try to give you some time to catch your breath, download images, and get ready for the next location. Keep in mind that the Maine coast weather forces us to be flexible, so trust Ron’s instincts here! The itinerary may not be followed to the letter, but not to worry, you'll never forget the beauty you witness on this trip.
