Experienced photographers know the difficulties of shooting in museum and exhibit settings, the crowds, the harsh lighting and confined conditions. This will not be the case at this Canon Live Learning workshop.
Attendees to “Trains and Tripods” will have the entire California State Railroad Museum at their disposal to photograph without the general public. You will also be allowed to setup and use tripods and multiple Speedlites (not allowed during normal hours).
First, on September 3rd, Canon Live Learning Instructor Jim Rose will teach a seminar on tips and techniques for shooting in museums.
•Planning your shoot to optimize your time
•Using HDR to manage contrast and shoot for impact
•Simple and inexpensive accessories to make your shooting more enjoyable and fun
•Managing perspective in a controlled environment
•Which lenses to use to help you frame the best composition
•How to expose in contrasty light and minimize flare
•Tilt/shift lenses for panoramas and minimizing distortion
Then on the 4th before public hours, the Museum opens its doors for a unique and exclusive event for photographers “Trains and Tripods”. You will be able to get shots you wished you could get during normal museum hours.
There will also be instructional workshops throughout the morning.
• Tilt-shift lenses for panoramas
