What you'll do

San Pancho beach will be the perfect backdrop for an amazing sunset course!

In this 90-minute course, we will cover the following topics: composition, lighting, exposure, focal lengths, white balance, lenses, metering, long exposures, camera specific questions,
and more! You will be learning new skills and techniques as you capture wonderful images of charming San Pancho at its most lovely time of day.

We begin the session with an informative lecture and follow it with a comprehensive, hands-on portion where you will practice the discussed techniques and assignments. This is repeated with each subject. During the hands-on portion, each student will receive one-on-one instructions and review with the instructor.

About the Lesson: Students will learn how to control the colors of the their sunset images with white balance, and shooting fast and long exposures of the setting sun. First, we will have a group lesson to gauge everyone's interests and skill levels. We will take some time discussing metering modes and practice shooting silhouettes. Next, we will use fast shutter speeds to capture the sun as it sets from the beach and then experience the difference when using smaller apertures and longer exposures.

We will be sitting on the beach for the majority of this workshop; I will typically bring blankets to sit on. You are welcome to bring your own chairs or sit on the sand.
