The Bay area is teeming with great opportunities to see and photograph fine automobiles. Whether your subject is race cars in their element, classics resting on freshly cut rye, or customs in a show hall, the underlying challenges are similar. What equipment do you need, how do you deal with mixed (and changing) light, and how do you find interesting viewpoints that distinguish the visually interesting elements of the car from a distracting background? Join Dave Henry, Bill Graham, and Jim Rose to learn what you need to make images that you will want to show off.
We will begin with a short presentation from Dave covering equipment and technique. Dave will then brief you on what to expect at the various shooting stations. Once participants are oriented we will quickly move to shooting stations and get to work making images. The instructors will be available to the participants to answer technical questions, make creative suggestions, and offer immediate coaching. In addition to the cars, Dave will set up small product workstations (our set is also a working winery) so that you can experiement with RF wireless flash and tilt-shift lenses.
Once you capture a great image make sure to see your Canon rep, John Bell, and share a copy with him. Each participant’s best image will be entered in a Canon sponsored contest and contest entries will be published in a future edition of Victory Lane magazine.
The workshop enjoys full sponsorship from Canon and participants will have access to a wide variety of equipment from Canon Professional Services (a perk normally reserved for accredited media photographers).
Your class admission price includes lunch at the conclusion of the class. (wine is not included).
