AIP Monthly Meetup: WATER DROP PHOTOGRAPHY - A HANDS ON SHOOTING WORKSHOP
sam. 3 novembre à 16:00
About this workshop There is a special beauty to seeing liquid frozen in time, especially when a collision is involved. Join professional photographer Loren Fisher as he shows you how to make take magical photos of liquid drops colliding and splashing. This is a hands-on-workshop where you use your camera and Loren's special equipment to create your own unique and exciting photos. Loren will show many examples of what happens when drops collide and the unique images that are created with each shot. He will talk about the special equipment needed to control the timing of water drops to be sure you capture that fraction of a second in your camera. He will also go into how this type of high speed photography works and how lighting changes the look of the splashing liquids. Being able to freeze very fast action is key and Loren will show you what lighting equipment is needed and the settings required to stop action at the precise moment needed for an amazing photo. Loren has a special device to make drops and synchronize the camera and flash, which creates exciting splashes and collisions. The coolest are when a second drop hits the splash of the first drop, crazy shapes are created. By using controlled lighting, gels, backgrounds and liquids, unique looks are created with every shot. No two splashes look the same. The first half hour will be spent going over the theory of high speed photography. Then we'll then spend the next 2 hours shooting non-stop. We’ll use different liquids as they make different amazing splashes. Milk looks different than water and Loren will add elements to the water to make it splash differently. We’ll also change lighting setups to give different effects. What you need to bring: Camera with macro lens, a tripod and wired remote shutter release. You must have a macro lens in order to focus your lens close enough to get the shot. If you don’t have a macro lens, check your zoom lens, it may have close focus capabilities. You need to be able to focus within a foot with your lens. Your lens should be at least 50mm (or it will get wet) and in the 100mm range is best. You also must have a wired remote shutter release. Please don’t try to use a wireless release, you’ll be disappointed with your results. Everyone will get to shoot every splash but the photos will look different depending on your angle.
