Weekend Activity Descriptions
November is the stormiest month on Lake Superior. It's the month with the best chance of capturing this inland sea showing off its explosive nature. Photographer Bryan Hansel leads you on a learning experience to some of the most beautiful out-of-the-way locations for making great storm and lake images. Workshop time is divided between the classroom - learning about metering, manual camera controls, lighting, composition - and the field. Evenings are spent peer reviewing the day's images.
Although there will be some classroom time, expect to spend most of this workshop in the field. Bryan will be available to answer any questions, suggest pictures, and show you some of his hidden photography sites.
The itinerary will be as dynamic as the weather. All activities subject to modification due to weather conditions.
CAMERA BASICS AND COMPOSITION: Join Bryan to learn about those manual settings on your camera. He also discusses composition and several techniques for developing your photographic style.
METERING AND LIGHTING: Learn about lighting, metering, and the creative use of exposure to influence your final image. We'll also discuss ways to increase the dynamic range of your images.
PEER REVIEW: You'll select five of your favorite images from the day and project them on the big screen for peer review.
Required Photography Equipment
Camera: A SLR style digital camera or a point and shoot that allows you to manually set your shutter speed and aperture is highly recommended, but other cameras will also work.
Filters: A polarizing filter is highly recommended. Two and Three Step ND Grads with Holder and rings for your lenses.
Other Suggested Equipment: Bring a tripod, your camera's manual, and a laptop computer. Call for recommendations.
