Florida State Fair Photo Safari

You've probably seen those cool shots with ferris wheels blurring and other great carnival pics. Come with us and let me work one on one with you to learn how to do it on the 2015 Florida State Fair Photo Safari. The fair is a great place to learn to take night shots and high dynamic range pictures while surrounded by Krispy Kreme Doughnut cheeseburgers and a lot of action. The people, movement, sights and sounds of the Fair make this environment a great place to have some fun and learn night photography. Plus, shooting in a group is awesome!

We will start around sunset and as the lights of the midway come up we will be there to capture it all. Participation is limited to 12 people to allow for one on one coaching (if needed)












Pre-requisites include Photo 101 or a working knowledge of the manual and semi automatic modes of your camera (you need to know what the dials do!). Equipment best suited for night photos will have an adjustable ISO, a  shutter speed of at least 10 seconds, and the ability to manually control the aperture (f-stop). Tripods are also strongly recommended
