Join Carl in May for a 1 day nature photography workshop - photographing the gentle spring landscapes in the southeastern Adirondacks. The workshop is based at Carl's home in Brant Lake, so travels will most likely be to sites in the Lake George area, as well as some special locations closer to his home in Brant Lake.
Our Comprehensive One Day Adirondack Photography Workshops for beginner to intermediate photographers feature instruction on many facets of digital and film photography including - camera basics, digital camera features and menus, RAW files, digital workflow, lenses, depth of field, composition, lighting, and various photo techniques. The 8 hour day features about 3 - 4 hours of PowerPoint and instruction, Q & A, and image critique in our Brant Lake office - and then several hours of photography at nearby photo locations practicing camera techniques and photography principles. Please note for anyone with allergies occasionally there is a cat in the house - we do clean thoroughly before a workshop.
During the afternoon and evening photo shoots there will potentially be considerable diversity in the lighting conditions. We'll work with whatever the lighting is that day to decide both where and when - and the types of scenes we'll be photographing. We may be doing close-up photography as well as telephoto work, and some wide angle landscape views, too. If the evening conditions work out, we'll be sure to try to set up to photograph the sunset at a really nice location.
This photo workshop is rated 'easy'. Most of the potential photography locations are either fairly close to a road, or within a short walking distance of a trailhead. There may be some ups and downs to the walking, so it is a good idea to have a pack that comfortably accomodates both camera gear and outdoor gear while walking in these conditions. There are bound to be some black flies - please see the equipment list for suggestions of things to bring. This isn't meant to scare folks away - we just want everyone well prepared for the potential conditions so we all have a great time!
Carl enjoys working with all levels of photographers - with a maximum of 6 in the workshop it works out for both general instruction and being able to give individual attention. He began working with a digital SLR in spring 2007 and will explore the additional options that digital cameras provide as well as the various features of film and traditional 35mm SLR and panoramic cameras. No matter which image format you use, a sturdy tripod is essential for working with composition and slow shutter speed techniques.
Please bring whatever food you might want for the afternoon and evening. We will most likely travel to at least a couple of different photo locations.
Sunset is about 8 PM. The best color in the clouds can often be about 10 to 20 minutes after actual sunset, so we might be photographing until after sunset, and then heading back to the car in evening twilight.
