Today’s Summer Photo Camp excursion turned out to be a wash (pun intended). We had hoped to make three stops: Sand Sculptures at Revere Beach, Constitution Wharf and lastly, Boston City Market.
We arrived at Revere Beach under torrential rain. We sat in vehicles and watched some of the sculptors setting up their bases, but once the lightening arrived, everyone took cover under their tents. The rain subsided a bit, enough for us to move under the overhangs, but not enough to bring the sand artists back out. Ms. Phillips used the coastline to show students how to take multiple shots of the sea coast while rotating only her body (human tripod); back in the classroom students were given instruction (using Photoshop) on how to perform a photo merge, creating one panoramic photo from the many shots taken (see below).
As Mother Nature was uncooperative, we headed back to MSMS after a short snack run. Our plan for tomorrow is to head quickly back to Revere Beach and spend a brief time shooting the sculptors before returning to MSMS for our last day of camp.
