This is a small group clinic with a lot of personalized instruction. Spaces fill quick!
Over the course of the 3 days, Dan will work with you to teach you how to get the best from your camera, proper exposure, timing, composition, getting the ‘soul’ of biking across, advanced techniques (like off camera flash if people really want it), basic processing. Each day will be a mix of scouting, shooting, processing and learning about the professional side of sport photography.
We will be on Grey Mountain today, with the focus being scouting shooting locations. Today we will get in as much shooting time as possible, learning new techniques applicable to ‘on trail’ sets. The afternoon will be spent going over specific wants of the industry and how to capture them in your photography. Late evening shoot.
Montana Mountain has recently undergone a transformation from a silver mining hot spot in bygone years to a current mountain biking paradise! These trails have many features that will help you gain an appreciation for spacing, angles, lighting and contrast.
On our 3rd day, we will go through the finer points of processing and will spend the majority of the day out on the trail.
