STUFF YOU SHOULD KNOW:
How will we get around?
We’ll meet at Understand Photography studio and travel by van to and within Miami.
Lunch is not included. You are welcome to bring your own or join us at a reasonably priced restaurant.
What will we be photographing?
This Photo Adventure encompasses cityscape and streetlife – we will begin in the Wynwood Art District and make our way to Vizcaya.
What skill level is required?
This photo adventure is geared to photographers of all skill levels. Every adventurer from beginner to advanced can proceed at their own pace. We strongly suggest that you take our beginning DSLR course if you are not familiar with the basics of exposure: shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
What will I learn during the Photo Adventure?
At every step of your Photo Adventure Joe Fitzpatrick will be at your side, sharing techniques .
We will cover:
Which of your camera’s exposure modes is preferred for each shooting condition. Which metering mode works best for each subject. Using the histogram to improve your exposures. How to take advantage of your camera’s various auto focus modes. Subject isolation. Composition. Filters. Advanced techniques tailored to your level of knowledge.What equipment should I bring?
DSLR camera or advanced compact.
Ideally, lenses to provide the equivalent coverage of full frame lenses from 24mm to 105mm. For “crop” DSLRs this means lenses in the range of 17mm to 85mm. A somewhat longer lens, 200mm might be useful for detail and background blur.
A circular polarizer if you own one.
Flash. Pop up flash is fine.
Remote shutter release. Useful, but your camera’s timer will suffice in a pinch.
Memory cards, bring them all! Batteries, you will need spares.
Include your phone number and email when registering. We need a minimum of four attendees to make this happen so please register early.
