Adventure Photography Workshop – The Art of Motion
Workshop Leaders: Michael Clark and Eric Gould
Location: San Francisco, CA
Adventure photographer/author Michael Clark and leading workshop instructor Eric Gould are teaming up for a hands-on workshop in San Francisco, on October 20 – 21, 2012. They’re bringing in world class athletes for you to photograph and refine your skills. Not only will you go home with a great education – you’ll get some amazing on location photos for your portfolio too.
Adventure sports photography can be an adventure in itself, involving breathtaking locations, extreme conditions and working with elite athletes in risky situations. It requires a host of skills, including technical excellence with the camera, familiarity with the sport and the ability to keep your goals and safety in mind throughout.
This workshop concentrates on creating unique adventure sports and lifestyle images. We focus on outdoor sports like: mountain biking, rock climbing and skateboarding. Using athletes as our models and the amazing landscape in and around San Francisco as our backdrop, we explore innovative ways to capture the essence of these sports.
Topics covered during the weekend include research and preparation, composition and camera angles, equipment selection and use, using natural light, fill flash and battery-powered strobes, and autofocus techniques.
We also learn how to work with athletes who are putting themselves at risk and how to capture the intensity of the action. We will be shooting on both days of the workshop and will also be in the classroom editing and critiquing images. In addition, Michael shares his insights and experiences in the adventure marketplace.
Participants will also receive a copy of Michael’s e-book, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom: A Professional Photographer’s Workflow. This e-book is top-notch resource on digital workflow and it discusses in great detail his exact digital workflow from start to finish.Please click not the link above to register for this workshop.
