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.
