FYM Photography is excited to offer a FREE single day workshop on Sunday, April 15 2012 in Calgary Alberta focusing on cityscapes and the sunset. Calgary represents a unique skyline set against the backdrop of the prairies and rocky mountains.
Distinct buildings and features help to deliver compelling framing for your cityscapes and the majestic rocky mountains help to break up the sunset into dramatic light shows. This workshop will focus on framing, technique and best practices to get the most out of your equipment and to get you at least one memorable shot for the evening. The workshop will emphasize training on camera settings, equipment setup and best practices. A basic understanding of camera functions such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO are an asset but not required. We will be spending the majority of the evening outdoors so please dress appropriately for the worst case scenario.
- HOW MUCH | FREE FREE FREE – thank you to the readers of this site for their love and support in sharing the work on this site. This is something that I’ve been asked by a number of readers for so I would like to thank everyone by offering this session.
- WHERE | Calgary Alberta Canada – Location will be determined by the people singing up (do so by RSVP’ing me via e-mail or drop me a line at www.facebook.com/fymphoto)
- WHEN | We will be meeting working through introductions and setup approximately 7pm. Sunset is approximately 830pm and shooting to approximately 930-10pm with a review session afterwards.
Weather – We will be shooting outdoors so please bring a variety of environment appropriate clothing. I recommend dressing in layers for maximum versatility and be prepared with warm shoes, a wind breaking jacket, fleece sweather, touque and wind resistant pants. Comfort is paramount to get the most out of sitting outside shooting for this extended period of time. Remember – it’s Calgary
Equipment – As we are focusing on landscapes and exploring low light photography into sunset, a sturdy tripod is a requirement. If you have access to a remote cable release, this will be invaluable as well. Bring camera, lenses, tripod, batteries and extra memory cards. Bring your camera charger as well and an inverter for your vehicle if you have access to one.
