This Lake Superior photography workshop combines classroom time with field-work and a final review. You’ll learn photography techniques for capturing waterfalls. There’s plenty of time for one-on-one instruction with the small group size.
An optional afternoon outing starts at 1pm. Meet at 6PM for introductions and a classroom presentation that presents techniques for successfully capturing gales.
The day starts early with a morning session on the Lake Superior shoreline photographing the sunrise. Then we break for breakfast which is available in the lobby or on your own. We’ll assemble after breakfast and then head back out into the field for a full-day adventure. We’ll come back to the Grand Marais for dinner before heading out for the sunset.
We assemble before sunrise in the lobby to head out for a sunrise photography session and stay in the field until mid-morning. Breakfast is available in the lobby or on your own. After breakfast we meet up for image review. The workshop ends at 1PM.
Required Photography Equipment
Camera: A SLR-style digital camera or a point and shoot that allows you to manually set your shutter speed and aperture is highly recommended. A variety of lenses ranging from 18mm to 200mm. Most of the time, you’ll use something in the 18mm to 70mm range, but the other focal lengths are useful.
Filters: A polarizing filter (example) and vari-ND filter (example high-end: Singh-Ray Vari-ND, example entry-level: Opteka Variable Neutral Density) are highly recommended. Two and three step ND grads with a holder and rings for your lenses are optional (See this newsletter for more info about NDs).
Other Suggested Equipment: Bring a tripod, your camera’s manual, a USB thumb drive, waterproof camera bag and a laptop computer.
We’ll send out a full equipment list a month before the workshop.
