photo(1)Ever wonder how we manage to capture the look of Woods Hole on a daily basis?  How sometime the photos are so evocative that you can hear the gulls crying, feel the salt air breeze or smell the truffle fries?

Well, the simple secret is that it all happens on an iPhone .  Take a look at the Woods Hole Inn Facebook page or the Quicks Hole Facebook page to get a sense of our commitment to journaling the beauty of Woods Hole 365 days a year.  We are on a photo safari every day of the year on Cape Cod!

iPhoneography is a growing trend, fueled by the smart phone revolution and the power of sharing images on Facebook, Instagram and other sites.  This three day retreat on Cape Cod is designed to teach you all you need to know to make great images, edit them, add text and graphics and post to social media — all from your smart phone!  Take your photography and social media to the next level while exploring the beautiful vistas and light of the Cape and islands.

The schedule of events for the weekend is as follows:

-Friday April 4th, 6 – 7.30: Welcome Wine and Cheese reception

-Saturday April 5th, 10-12 noon:  Secret of Great Photos & Social Media.  Beth will discuss the composition of great photos, how to edit and improve photos, how to add text and graphics to make your photos pop, what makes a photo go viral, how does an idea catch fire online?  In addition, she will explore the best social media outlets for photographers, plus how to connect and grow your reach on these important sites.  Most of all, how to do this quickly and joyfully so it becomes an integral and easy part of your day.

-Saturday April 5th, 2 pm: Photo Walk Woods Hole.  Get out and try what you have learned in one of Cape Cod’s most beautiful destinations.  Jetties, wind swept trees, boats bobbing on moorings and more await your new found photographers eye in this guided photo tour.

-Sunday April 6, 9.30 am: Ferry to Martha’s Vineyard with Beth for a three hour photo safari.  Lighthouses, old churches, a whaling village, the gingerbread cottages and much more await your camera and keen eye.

Owner Beth Colt studied photography in high school (thanks Mr Cheney!) but really honed her eye by studying the success of others like her college classmate Lauren Greenfield, and many friends made through social media.  The Woods Hole Inn has 2,300 Facebook fans, 500+ Instagram followers, and several thousand Twitter followers to which Beth largely credits her commitment to shooting all the time and her love of networking.

For locals interested in attending the Retreat without booking a room, we will have a few spaces available for $299 for all three sessions plus the meal at Quicks Hole Tavern, the Alison Shaw book and an invite to the wine and cheese reception.  Please call the inn to discuss availability.
