Capturing Spring: Weather, Waterfall and Wildflowers
201 California Street
San Francisco, California 94111
Springtime brings not only interesting light and photogenic weather, it also brings together numerous photographic opportunities, such as landscape, wildflower, birds and butterflies.
Join photojournalist and Canon Live Learning instructor Dave Henry in a program designed to specifically help you in these areas.
You will be shown the basics of managing shutter speeds and apertures to create new visual effects from landscapes to butterflies. Learn how to capture rivulets of water in a moving ballet as they plunge into turbulent pools below.
New exposure concepts such as bracketing ISO instead of shutter speeds will open new creative avenues for you. We’ll show you how water flow determines shutter speed and where aperture controls the bokeh on a delicate wildflower and back-button autofocus combined with automatic focus point selection freezes a darting butterfly.
We’ll bring it all together with ideas on controlling exposure with specialized filters such as the polarizing, graduated neutral density and long exposure neutral density filter.
Make this seminar your final stop before venturing out into the world of blended landscapes, waterfalls, birds and wildflowers.
