Spinning, crumbling, splashing, EXPLODING… Over the last week and a half, we’ve been conducting fun photo experiments here in the office to prepare for our upcoming 3-Day Photo Workshop for Beginners. Take a look at the “exploding bottle” photos we got: How do you make colorful liquid shoot out of a bottle and then freeze in mid-air with your camera? It’s a simple shutter speed trick. And no, we didn’t use professional studio lights. We taped a white piece of poster board to the outside of my garage door and let the sun be our light – a set-up you can easily recreate at home for less than $5. Join us in Washington D.C. next month, and find out just how fun and easy photography can be, when we break down some of the most complicated techniques into simple, easy-to-understand play stations. Part of this workshop will be spent in class and in photo reviews. But a good 20 hours of learning will be in these special stations where you’ll learn how to adjust your aperture, shutter speed, and ISO to get the picture effects you want. Some stations will have moving objects where your instructor will show you, step-by-step, how to blur and stop the movement. Others will have objects set up at varying distances and you’ll learn how to blur some objects and keep others in focus. In just three days, you’ll gain a much better understanding of your camera and how to adjust your settings to get the effects you want. And, since we’ve designed this workshop to be a lot of fun as well as easy to understand, you’ll never again find yourself in a lighting situation you don’t know how to manage. Tomorrow, I’ll send you a few more pictures we took outside, along with a few others taken in a fancy studio…and we’ll see if you can spot the difference. Stay tuned!
