A Weekend Workshop with the Photoguru Sean Arbabi
The incredible fields of wildflowers will provide our inspiration for this special weekend of photography. Our stay at the Historic Lifeboat Station will put us within easy walking distance of many of the most beautiful and vibrant displays of wildflowers on the peninsula, with the Pacific Ocean and its dramatic cliffs as a backdrop.With cameras in hand, and fine photography our goal, we will join Sean as he shares his special charm and leads us on a visual quest for incredible floral photographs.
Sean will also give PowerPoint presentations and field demonstrations that include such topics as the art of macro, using angles to your advantage, choosing the right equipment, and how weather plays a key role in the art of wildflower photography. He will offer a variety of content in combination with his knowledge and examples of work toward the goal for students to improve their photographic skills. There will also be plenty of time for personal critiques of participant work, and you have the option of bringing five of your best wildflower images in 35mm slides, digital images preferred, for critiquing. Bringing a USB flash drive with your images is the best option.
You can bring any camera to this workshop (point-and-shoot, digital, film-based etc). The best option (although not required) would be a 35mm DSLR camera, 1-3 lenses, a tripod, and enough compact flash cards (with your laptop) or slide film to cover your photo needs (preferable 100 ASA). Please bring comfortable hiking or walking shoes along with your weekend suitcase. Join us for a wonderful weekend of camaraderie amidst the California coast. The class fee includes accommodations at the Historic Lifeboat Station.
