The Live Shoots will be held on Wednesday, August 12th from 11am-4pm and are open to all attendees. The four shoots are listed with more detail below.
Food photography can be an expression of beautiful colors and great textures. Great food photography makes the viewer want to dine where you are. In this setup, we'll have local dishes prepared, and a table setup with reflectors and cards. All you have to do is step in, and see what element inspires you to make a photograph. That said - try not to eat the food.
A great picture often starts with a great subject. The subject must know how to move with the camera, and what looks will make the image as flattering as possible. How about spending some time in a shoot setup with a trained model? This will give you the chance to solely focus on your gear - and get that winning shot.
Colors, textures and details spring to life when focusing really intently on a small portion of a picture. Instead of taking in a wide expanse -get really close in this macro setup of random objects. With the right gear and a little patience, you'll be surprised at the results that you'll get. If you own a macro lens - this would be a good time to bring it and please make sure that the lens you bring can fit a 77mm, XXmm, or XXmm adapter.
A beautiful wedding shot can really add a new dimension to your photographic work. That said - you don't really want to commit yourself to shooting a wedding if you don't have any experience in doing so. Renting a church and a bride model can also be a costly venture. In this setup, you'll have a natural light wedding chapel here in Vegas, a Bride and Groom, and the time you need in a relaxed environment to test out making a great shot.
