2 Day Miami Photo Adventure
Saturday 4/13/2013 – Sunday 4/14/2013
Have fun, travel and improve your photography!
Pack your camera and an overnight bag and join us in Miami for a unique photo adventure. Surround yourself with the largest concentration of 1920s and 30s architecture in the world. Capture the color and variety of graffiti taken to the level of high art. Let your inner street photographer emerge as the glitz and glamor of art deco South Beach comes alive after dark. Then finish your day by turning your camera towards the spectacular night cityscape of Miami.
In the morning you will find yourself surrounded by the sounds and colors of the Amazon, Africa, Asia and Australia as we journey to Zoo Miami. The natural appearing surroundings and absence of cages and bars will allow you to photograph over 2000 animals as if they were in their native wilderness.
You will capture spectacular images of all this and more when you join Understand Photography in Miami for a 2 day photography workshop. Have fun, improve your photographic skills and return home with memorable images.
Experienced workshop leader and mentor Joe Fitzpatrick will guide you to his favorite locations at the time of day or night when the light is right. At each location Joe will share his techniques, enabling you to overcome exposure, lighting and compositional challenges. With his guidance you will learn to control the complex features of your camera. Joe's easy to understand style of instruction will help you to become the photographer you long to be. This trip is limited to five participants per leader so that everyone will receive personal attention.
The field workshop will offer you the opportunity to photograph breathtaking cityscapes at night, the unique South Beach area, the graffiti of the Wynwood district and a wide range of wildlife at Zoo Miami. Your photographic exploration begins at the Holiday Inn Express at 1100 AM on Saturday, 4/13 and concludes mid-day, on Sunday, 4/14 at Zoo Miami.
