The Perfect Photo Cruise

Photo Workshop with Roger Miller

Everyone trying to get the perfect photo with Roger Miller’s Photo Workshop. Practice, practice, practice!

Today we had the perfect night for learning how to take amazing photos on the water. Roger Miller hosted a Photography Workshop aboard the Woodwind. It was fun, as the captain, watching a group of 25 people rotate around to catch the perfect picture.

I also had fun trying to place the boat in the best spot to catch all the best of photos of the races on Thursday nights. Getting on the sunny side of one fleet’s start was beautiful and then to sail to the other course 500 feet away for a back-lit  view of a race start was challenging, but we timed it perfectly.

They brought a fish eye lens for the workshop and let guests use it for some of their photos. Our crew member, Charlotte, got an interesting view from it.

A beautiful sunset concluded the event with all the spinnakers from the race boats.

Hope to do more of these next year.

About Captain Jennifer

Sailing has been a vital part of Jen's life since she was 5. Racing and cruising with her family filled her summers until she started teaching kids to sail. Her sophomore year in college, she sailed the Caribbean on a 125-ft schooner for credit in science, literature, and history. She now was addicted to schooner sailing. 3 years later, her family built the Woodwind. At 26, she became a captain.
