Ace Photo Meet & Shoot: Photographing Sunflowers

May 12th, 2010 No comments

763sunflowerJoin Josh Taylor for a photo shoot at McKee-Beshers Wildlife Management Area near Seneca, MD on Saturday, July 24 from 5:15–9:30 A.M.  Spend the morning photographing acres of blooming sunflowers for as far as the eye can see. Josh, a photo instructor at Ace Photo, will show you how to capture stunning images and get the best possible pictures of sunflowers from basic photo equipment. There is no place with such an offering of sunflowers for every photographic style. Unique photographic opportunities abound for sunrise landscape images, close-ups, and HDR photography. Participants should have working knowledge of their camera, so time in the field can be spent on getting the most from the photographic opportunity rather than learning camera operation.

Two images from the photo shoot can be e-mailed to the instructor for a written critique.

To help you capture the best possible image, the following are recommended:

1.  A wide angle or wide angle zoom lens in the 17-55mm range to capture landscape views of the sunflowers
2.  A telephoto/zoom lens in the 300mm range to capture intimate views of sunflowers
3.  A macro lens or a lens with macro capability to capture close-ups of sunflowers
4.  Polarizing filter
5.  Reflector or a piece of aluminum foil to bounce light into flowers
6.  Suitable footwear…it can be wet and muddy! No place for sandals!
7.  Hat, long sleeve shirt, and long pants for insect protection
8.  Visitors to the management area should be aware of biting insects, mosquitoes and ticks from April-December

Cost: $99

Limited to 12 participants

Transportation: Meet and caravan from Tysons Corner Shopping Center. The group will assemble in front of the L.L. Bean store entrance on Tyson’s Center Drive.   A second stop will be made at the Potomac Place Shopping Center at the intersection of River Road and Falls Road, Potomac, MD.  The group will depart Tysons Corner Shopping Center promptly at 5:15AM for McKee–Beshers WMA near Seneca, MD (approx. 45–minute drive from Tysons)

Registration through Ace Photo.

( Lunch & model included in price )

Join us for an all-day Nikon flash photography workshop to learn how to get the most out of your Nikon external flash (SB-600, 800, 900). The Nikon speedlights offer a powerful yet flexible system, whether you have one or more flashes you’ll learn how to maximize their capabilities in this workshop. The workshop will help you understand the modes and functions of your flash, as well as how aperture and shutter speed affect flash photography. Find out how to effectively use multiple flash units and control your flashes wirelessly. Using multiple flash units opens up additional possibilities whether you’re in a studio or on location. They allow you to produce high quality results without the expense and bulk of studio lighting. We’ll also cover working with light modifiers for greater control over lighting your subject. Modifiers covered include soft boxes, umbrellas, diffusers, reflectors, gels, grids and snoots. Part of the workshop will be spent photographing a model where participants will have the opportunity to practice the techniques discussed.
