How to Photograph the Figawi & other Sailing Events
Instructor(s): Peter Barrows & Nancy Bloom
Day: Tuesday, May 16
Price: Members $45/Non-Members $55
Peter Barrows and Nancy Bloom will show you how to take great photographs of the upcoming Figawi or any other sailing/boating events. In this two hour workshop they will show you several of their images, explain the do’s and don’ts of photographing boats, recommend equipment, lenses, and what camera settings to use.
You will also be inspired by viewing sailing photographs from the Classical Yachting Master Photographers of the early 1900’s to today’s Professional High Tech Yachting Photographers. You will have gotten a much greater appreciation of some of the fabulous yachting photos being taken today and how to get them yourself.
Just in time for the Figawi, you will gain a better understanding of your camera settings and composition to take a great boating photograph. Although this is a classroom workshop, Peter and Nancy will try to give you the feeling of the wind and water.
Bring a notebook and pen or laptop to take notes. Bring your camera if you have questions.
