Do you love classic cars and antique trains? Are you interested in learning imaging techniques with HDR and EDR (Extended Dynamic Range Photography)? Then this workshop is for you!
Join Canon Explorer of Light, Rick Sammon, on a truly unique photo exploration of Old Car City and The Southeastern Railway Museum in the Atlanta, GA area. This workshop will focus on using a creative eye to find beauty within the junkyard as we document the cars and trains of yesteryear.
Old Car City is the world’s largest known classic car junkyard, surrounded by beautiful vegetation of the Deep South. With hundreds of old cars in open fields, it’s great for straight shots, and amazing for grunge shots. The Southeastern Railway Museum has beautifully restored train cars, offering both indoor and outdoor photo ops.
At Old Car City, we’ll have a model! For the model shoot, Rick will teach how to control the light using reflectors, diffusers and fill-in flash. Both locations offer endless creative photo possibilities - especially when we add a model for environmental portrait opportunities. You will go home with a collection of photos to build your professional portfolio and treasure for years to come.
We will kick off the workshop with an evening presentation and an opening slideshow. Each day will feature a field shoot at one location, followed by classroom lecture, post-processing instruction and image critiques. As part of the workshop registration students are able to borrow the latest Canon lenses and camera bodies. Having a professional model in this environment is sure to provide opportunity for plenty of inspiring photographs, and the Canon gear we will provide for students to learn and experiment with will only further enhance the experience.
Limited to only 16 participants, you will have plenty of one-on-one attention and support from Rick Sammon, and one of our highly skilled Canon Technical Specialists, who will help you in both the field and the classroom. You will also have the chance to submit your favorite images to the on-site technical representative, who will make one or two prints for you to take home from a Canon Pixma Pro Printer!
