Atchafalaya Workshop Fall 2018

October 25, 2018 @ 12:00 pm


Cost $295:  Payment due at time of sign up.      

* The lecture and field trip are for paid participants only                             

Lecture:   October 25, 2018….In the pre field trip lecture, we will discuss digital shooting techniques as they apply to swamp photography from boats. We will concentrate on composition and lighting; the most important aspects to great photography. We will also work on tips and techniques to photographing sunsets, wildlife, and close-ups. Photo editing with Adobe Lightroom will also be covered.  Finally we will discuss equipment and the logistics of the field trip. Lecture location will  be off Highland Road in Baton Rouge. Lunch will be provided.  Lunch and lecture 12 noon to 2:00 PM

Field Trip:  After lunch on October 25th and the instruction session, we take off to one of the great sites on the east side of Atchafalaya Basin. Drive time approximately one hour. Exact location depends on water level in the basin and will be decided closer to the launch date.

We will concentrate on landscapes of bald cypress trees, bayous, and a fall swamp sunset. There is also a good chance of getting some wetland wildlife.

Equipment:  You will need your camera, lens, extra chips, extra batteries, and some kind of protective case for your gear. Bring your tripod if you have one. Lens: A good wide angle is best for most landscapes, a macro lens for close-ups, and a telephoto of 200mm up to 300mm is good for wildlife. Remember though, “It’s youthat gets the good picture, not the equipment.”

Other Gear:  drink/water, small towel, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, mosquito repellent, notebook, pen and clothes for the current weather.

Critique Session:   CC’s will critique your best 10 photographs by email.  He will post his 10 best on his web page and all of the students who wish to be posted.

Additional Info:  At anytime in any of these sessions feel free to ask questions about anything including technique, equipment, marketing your photographs, setting up a web page, making prints, books, cards or other photo products.
