So, I was asked to present this coming weekend at PhotoCamp Utah 2010 on the topic of "on-location photography and big light techniques", which is going to be a blast! The one day event is completely sold out (with 400 people on a waiting list...sorry ya'll). I think Mr. Zack Arias has something to do with that.
Here's the deal. I only have 45 minutes to present before they yank me out of the room (which has been threatened). It's just enough time to talk through some scouting ideas as well as show a few behind the scenes examples, but not nearly enough time to set-up a true demo. If YOU were going to attend my class (or are), what would you want to get out of it?? I plan on talking about the behind the scenes from this Kauai, Trail Running Photograph as well as the lighting set-up for some of the images from the recent Salt Lake City Shootout: Powder Skiing image 1 and Powder Skiing photograph 2.
Here's the course description :
On-location Photography: from scouting great locations to delivering results with BIG light techniques
This class will focus on what it takes to achieve stellar imagery on-location. We will review two location based "BIG light" shoots and the resulting imagery
Starting point: Please come with a basic understanding of the technical side of working with off-camera lights. A love for the outdoors and location based work is a bonus. Ending point: Getting past the technical stuff and finding greater vision when shooting on location including the use of BIG lights.
HIT me below with your feedback (comments). I'm also toying with the Chase Jarvis idea of doing either a live feed from the presentation or at a minimum recording it and putting it up here in the near future.
