Up in smoke will be a hands on interactive session where we will look at how to setup, light and then photograph Controlled Smoke. Once photographed we will then look at several simple Post Processing Options in Photoshop and other tools to go from Basic, to Fine Art.
Bring your cameras, bring your tri-pods, bring your flashes, this IS A HANDS ON INTERACTIVE SESSION. No sitting here, LET'S PHOTOGRAPH.
Like past years; we have the chance to take great landscape photos and we able to have a “shoot-and-learn” workshop. This year we’ll be introduced to a new concept in portraits which we call the “Pano-portrait” it’s a combination of a panoramic shot combined with a portrait. All you will need is a normal lens (yes, even a point-and-shoot) and a tripod. We will supply the instruction, and a few additional pieces of equipment that you will need. We’ll find just the “right” space at Heisler Park and shoot our Pano-portraits. Everyone who wants to shoot will have an opportunity. Of course, you are free to shoot any of the wonderful scenes that you’ll discover within Heisler Park. There will be “tons” of people around the area – so plan on arriving early to find parking (you might have to walk a bit); don’t forget to bring quarters or your credit card – parking at the meters in Laguna Beach is strictly enforced. I assure you – you’ll learn a new way of creating terrific portraits and if you’ve never been to Heisler Park you’ll discover another gem along our beautiful coast.
This is the fifth year that Rick has hosted the “Coastal Walk” and we believe that this will be the best one ever! In the past, our walkers have created some spectacular photos that have won various awards in local as well as regional contests.
There is only room for 50 attendees - as of this date 45 have already registered!
2017 is quickly coming to an end and this is our last Image Competition for the year. This year we added a new system, engaged with a great new location, and have developed new and stronger relationships.
Let's finish this year strong and get more merits! Come early have dinner and socialize downstairs at Rinconda with some great Mexican food. Afterwards we migrate upstairs to join the others at 7:00 pm for our final Image Competition of 2017.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
