Adam Jones will be presenting "Through the Lens of Adam Jones" on April 9th 2011
He is offering us a workshop Sunday April 10th -- 10-12 people
"A Day in the Field with Adam Jones"
Workshop Overview: I envision the workshop as very hands on, nuts and bolts photography, with tips and techniques from 30+ years of photography. I'm open to a very full day, from sunrise to sunset if the club members wish to go that long. We will certainly break for lunch and dinner based around our shooting schedules of course. If the group wants a break in the middle of the day, we can do a morning shoot, then break and regroup for an afternoon shoot.
I'll leave it up to your club to offer several shooting locations, and we can visit as many of the locations as we need to fill the day or length of time the club wants. The more varied the locations, the more situations we can address and learn from in the field. I'm also fine with shooting architecture indoors or out, city skylines, zoos, botanical gardens, etc. About the only thing that does not work well for a mixed group is strict wildlife, where many photographers may not have the right equipment for such a specialized shoot.
An all day event -- location(s) of the clubs choice (We were thinking of perhaps Hammassett for sunrise, then breakfast, then heading East to Mystic until Sunset)
I'll cover scenics, depth of field considerations, finding the best compositions, natural light, filters, macro lenses and accessories, full flash and fill flash. Working with me in the field it is very easy for me to grasp each participants skill level and to work with them one on one.
Fee: $75/person, cash or check made payable to Adam Jones, collected by the club program organizer 4 weeks prior to the event
