Today’s Post by Joe Farace
If you’ve been looking for a way to jump start your techniques for photographing cars, our private workshops are a great and affordable way to start. Sessions are 90 minutes long, cost $50 (cash or check) and are held at Cars & Coffee events in Parker, Castle Rock and Colorado Springs. We’ll kick off the session with a brief discussion of capture options and then we’ll walk around the show and make photographs together.
These are one-on-one sessions between the student and myself where you will get to ask questions as we walk through the show discussing the right choice of lens for a specific kind of car as well as the types of shooting situations that might occur, such as dealing with the sometimes crowded areas you’ll encounter at car shows and Cars & Coffee events. I’ll show you how to cope with exposure conditions for dark and light colored cars, with some vehicles how its a good idea to use flash to light a car’s undercarriage.
These private workshops are aimed at both DSLR or mirrorless camera users, and I will be working with whichever of these camera types you have, although maybe not your exact camera brand—see My Gear section— that you use so there is less confusion about my use of a particular camera or lens combinations.
After the show when you get home and take a look at your images on your computer you may have some follow-up questions; anyone participating in these workshops will be able to e-mail me later with additional questions.
I’m looking forward to working with you. Just click on the Contact tab above and send me a note so we can pick the most appropriate car show for your schedule.
