Workshop limited to a maximum of 8 participants
Do to requests we have added a 3 day workshop to photograph white pelicans in a unique river setting. The environment is amazing, and one-hundred percent natural (no baiting). This workshop affords opportunites to photograph pelicans in-flight, as well as diverse interactive and fishing behavior in river rapids. We will also have the opportunity to photograph and video spawning sturgeon. This is unlike any other pelican venue.
As with all STL's, this is a workshop, not just a photo tour. "Shoot the Light" Photographic Instructional Workshops are designed to enhance your visionary skills, as well as your technical execution. Special emphasis is placed on creating images with Visual Impact. Increase your proficiency while using compositional elements and light to design in-camera images that are a cut above.
Chas will illustrate in-field how to best use drop-in ND filters with long lenses to include motion blur and limit DOF to make the subject "POP" within your image. How to best expose for white highlights. How to best use Live View, Mirror Lock up, and remote shutter firing. The benefits and detriments of both Back button & Shutter button AF will be covered in depth. How to set your camera to best acheive a sharp subject along with motion blurred water. Postproduction techniques to extract and maximize incredible highlight detail in your images.
