Sports for Parents
Offered: Saturday September 24th 9am-4pm
The Digital Single Lens Reflex camera is the ideal camera to capture Sports action. Bar none; you can’t do this well with other cameras! Still, you have bought the camera and are frustrated with fuzzy action photos. This is a Parents-with-DSLR-Sport-Photography class. This class will very specifically show you how to use and set your DSLR camera for peak action, be it Soccer, Volleyball, Tennis, Plays, Recitals and any other kind of kid-based locomotion. These techniques will also inform your photo efforts as well at family events, outings and soirees.
This class is in a busy parent format. It is from 9am to 12:30pm Saturday morning. Come together or hand the kids off to the Spouse for a morning, and come to Juana Birones Park in Palo Alto. We have a sporty hoop, circus and fire (optional!) performer who will perform peak moments for us. I will demonstrate and then you will shoot with my supervision. We will look at the work in the camera right away with the tools built in to the camera’s little darkroom. We repeat this shoot and review cycle to get very comfortable shooting all kinds of sporty activities.
Please note this workshop is for the DSLR camera. You need one of these cameras to participate in this class. Please read “Is your camera a DSLR?” to determine if your camera is a Single Lens Reflex camera. On mirrorless cameras an accessory eye level electronic viewfinder is required.
We also offer nice gift certificates for the avid shutterbug in your life. Give the gift that keeps on giving!
