EVENT HOST - 2017 Southwest PPA Convention
Lights, Camera, Tripod WALK
Have you ever sat quietly during an inspiring speaker just itching to go outside and practice the techniques learned? If you are thinking to yourself “Yes! That happens all the time” - then we have the cure. And we will throw in some easy cardio workout for free!
Join Robert and crew for the social photography event of the convention. We will start with a funny spirited introduction outside the hotel entrance before beginning our Photo Walk Safari hoping to spot fabulous models and maybe some “steel” horses. The walk will happen regardless of the weather, just like if you had to shoot to stay on schedule with clients. In fact, some of the most dramatic images will be created when you choose to work “outside the box” or your comfort zone in difficult lighting or weather. Of course, your safety is paramount, so we will stay indoors if the lighting strikes are within 3 miles or a tornado is spotted a few blocks away. You are in Oklahoma Dorothy.
We will discuss lighting on the go using the InterFit Photographic systems, modified by XP PhotoGear Speedboxes while stabilized on a Vanguard USA tripod. This is the gear Robert uses daily for everything from commercial to portraits and from “dragging the shutter” to “High Speed Sync”. Regardless of what camera brand you choose to use, Robert has a solution for your shooting problems.
Bring your favorite camera, lenses, flash and tripod. Please dress according to your needs for the local conditions. Some people are happy in shorts and t- shirt at 50 degrees, while others need an arctic jumper suit to stay war. Don’t forget your comfortable walking shoes, but choosing to wear “fashionable” heeled boots or 6” stilettos will garner extra praise and attention. When in doubt, be sure to contact Robert directly with questions and/or creative images of the heels.
