Milky Way & Night Sky and/or Lightning Workshop, Big Bend National Park 2018

 

 

Join Alan and Nick in the official “darkest area in North America”, Big Bend, Texas for an exciting 4 nights of photographing the Milky Way and night skys. See the stars like you have never seen them before on nights with no moon to ruin your Milky Way exposures and plenty of great foreground objects to make your photographs more interesting and three dimensional. As always we can’t control or guarantee our weather so if our weather doesn’t cooperate with clear skies our backup plan is to hopefully chase whatever storms are causing the bad weather to get some fantastic lightning shots instead of, or as well as night photographs. If you are concerned about weather issues we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance.

Hands-On Workshop
with Matt Hernandez

Saturday, September 29 : 9:00am – 2:00pm
@ Los Chiles Studio Theater, Rice University
6100 Main Street, MS-480, Houston, Tx – $249.95

 

Hands-On Workshop:
Being able to light with off-camera flash, specifically strobes, is extremely important in modern photography. Effectively using strobes, indoors and out, can separate you and your work in today’s competitive market. Have you ever had a client who wants completely different looks on the same shoot?
Join Westcott Top Pro Matt Hernandez as he takes you through his portrait workflow to give his subjects a wide variety of looks all in the same location. From softer portraits in casual clothing to dramatic sports images, you will learn it all as he shoots on location. Later, Matt will take you through his unique post-processing to give you insight on how he finishes off his images.
