Travel the Florida Backroads to Cedar Key
Explore hidden architectural and cultural treasures in the historic fishing village of Cedar Key, scenically located on the Gulf of Mexico. This two-day workshop will provide a contemporary window into the region’s heritage as a 19th-century trading and transportation center, linking the Gulf with inland Florida. Remaining today is what many consider to be one of Florida's most picturesque towns, providing rich photographic opportunities, including the natural and man-made landscape, local landmarks and interiors of historic buildings. This fun workshop includes working in black-and-white for both digital and film photographers (loaner film cameras available), camera demonstrations, a boat trip to outlying islands, a picnic lunch, dinner at the Island Hotel Restaurant, spectacular dusk photography session, and supervised lab time producing hand-printed enlargements from film.
