January's meeting: Virtually Scouting Locations for Photography

Join us at NHCC for the January program "Virtually Scouting Locations for Photography" Jan 14 2019

In the past, the only way for photographers to prepare for a sunrise or sunset shoot in a particular location was to show up in person and scout the terrain in advance.  But in the modern day, smartphone apps can save you time by enabling you to “virtually scout” a shooting location for any time of day or night, before you even arrive. This presentation covers the use of three different apps: Sun Surveyor predicts the path of the sun and moon for dawn and dusk shoots; StarWalk shows you where and when constellations and the Milky Way will enter the scene for your night shoots; and Depth of Field Calculator allows you to manually focus your lens to maximize depth of field, even when you can’t see the landscape in front of you.

NHCC meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays at 7:00pm (September thru May) at the Whitney Center, Cultural Arts Center, 200 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden. Come ~6:30 to socialize. For more information please contact Paul Peterson pmjpeterson@sbcglobal.net

NEW MEMBERS: Our meetings are open to the public. Please join us. The best way to meet people is to sign up for field trips and workshops. Workshops are also a great learning tool. Membership Application

‘KNOW BEFORE YOU GO’ WORKSHOP MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2019 3-5PM Paul Nguyen

‘KNOW BEFORE YOU GO’ WORKSHOP
MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 2019
3-5PM
Paul Nguyen

One of the weather apps on my iPhone uses the slogan: “Know before you go” and it occured to me that it would be the perfect title for this workshop. In this workshop you will receive hands on demonstrations on how to pre-determine the exact locations for shooting different lighting situations. In the past, the only way for photographers to prepare for a sunrise or sunset shot was to scout locations in advance. Now we have tools such as Sun Surveyor and Starwalk which can save you time by enabling you to ‘virtually scout’ a shooting location for any time of day or night. Sun Surveyor predicts the path of the sun and moon for dawn and dusk shots, while StarWalk shows you where and when constellations and the Milky Way will enter the scene for your night shoots.

The first hour of this hands on workshop will be spend learning and practicing the apps in a real world setting. The second hour will be spent actually shooting with the help of the apps, under the guidance of the instructor. It would be helpful to download the two apps to your phone prior to the workshop. The apps are compatible on iPhones and Android.

To sign up for the workshop, please email me at beadnik2@gmail.com. Workshops are free but you must be a current member to attend.
