Today’s Post by Joe Farace
If you’ve been looking for a way to jumpstart your photographic techniques for photographing cars, our private workshops are a great and affordable way to start. Sessions are 90 minutes long, cost $75 (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.
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, type of shooting situations such as dealing with the sometimes crowded areas that you’ll encounter at indoor or outdoor car shows and Cars & Coffee events. I’ll show you how to cope with exposure conditions for dark and light colored cars, how 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, although maybe not your exact camera brand—see the Gear section— that you use so there is no confusion about my use of a particular technique.
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 using the service can e-mail me later with additional questions at no additional cost.
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.
