Florida Macro: Reptiles, Amphibians and Wading Birds
Escape the chill of early spring by joining us in sunny Fort Myers, Florida for three days of immersion into the world of colorful macro and wildlife in the field. Our first full day of shooting begins with an amazing collection of wildly beautiful creatures: Dart Frogs, Snakes, Chameleons, and Geckos. We'll have multiple shooting stations in the hotel conference room where these subjects are posed on natural plants and flowers. With complementary backgrounds and no glass to shoot through or barriers to work around, this will be a great way to start the workshop! We'll have total control of the subjects and lighting all while creating stunningly beautiful images.
During days two and three, we’ll be shooting in some of Florida’s best birding hotspots, where you learn to use long lens techniques for razor sharp, frame filling images of stunning birds, alligators, and more!
We’ll headquarter our workshop at the Homewood Suites, Fort Myers, FL. The hotel is located conveniently for access to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Six Mile Cypress Slough and Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge for our birding/wildlife outings.
Learn to creatively use a variety of macro lenses and accessories: extension tubes, teleconverters, close-up diopters, ring flash and twin flash units. Learn how to get perfect flash exposures every time just inches from the subject.Days Two and Three:
We sharpen our telephoto lens techniques, capturing beautiful Florida birds, alligators, and more. We’ll learn about panning, freezing action, and slow motion blur treatments, working with tripods, telephoto lenses, and teleconverters, and seeing creatively. Learn to use rear button autofocus like the pro, and setting your camera up to work the way you want! Learn to use metering properly so you can get perfect exposure regardless of subjects background.What's Included:
