Come and photograph at the dramatic Gillette Castle in Connecticut. We will be photographing the Castle and the structures, the river, the clouds, the pond with its archway.
Come and learn about composition, how to see light and shadows, determine how many exposures are needed for HDR scenes, how to take creative long exposure photographs, and more. The Castle, pond, and structures on the grounds will provide a plethora of photographic opportunities.
Bring your ND filter and we can have fun and make people disappear. The ND filter can also be used for some dramatic cloud stacking. You will learn how to capture all of the details in the highlights and shadows by capturing multiple exposures (which are later tone-mapped to reveal the true dynamic range of the image).
Participants will also be invited to a brief demonstration of tone mapping the HDR exposures one evening after the workshop.
Things to bring:
--Lunch and water
--Camera with mid-range lens (24-105, 17-40, 12-100, etc.)
-- Tripod for long exposures
--ND (neutral density) filter (if you do not have one you can still attend -- you will be able to do most of the things, just not long exposures or cloud stacking)
-- Masks (for times when social distancing cannot be done. FYi, we add a lanyard to our mask, making it easy to hang around our neck when not needed)
**Optional things to bring (if you have them, not required)**
closeup lens like a 60mm, 100mm, or 105mm macro
70-200 or similar lens
