Foundations of Photography Class VI – Capturing Speed

October 13, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

$20 – $25

Class VI – Capturing Speed – Enzo Ferrari Demo Day

The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is proud to present the Foundations of Photography Study Series with Andrew Taylor. This is a 6-part educational series dedicated to photographing the automobile. This is an excellent learning experience for the novice or seasoned photographer and everyone in between. It’s also a great opportunity to learn from a fantastic automotive photographer who is closely familiar with each car in the collection and knows all of the best shots. Each session will feature a “Live Photo Shoot Area”, featuring a different exhibit from the Museum. We’ll lower the barricades so you can get up-close to the cars, and we’ll bring out the ladders so you can get unique shots. Andrew Taylor will explore the concepts and techniques behind capturing the sense of motion in photography.  Capturing good action in photography is all about planning ahead.  Action happens fast, so you have to be prepared ahead of time to capture it.  The discussion will explore Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO, and Focal Length in the context of Positioning, Panning, and Anticipation in an effort to help everyone capture Speed in their photography. During the Demo Day at noon, participants of the photography class will also be allowed to stand in a special roped off area to practice what they learned in the photography class during the Driving portion of the Demo Day. Classes are $25.00 per class or $125.00 to attend all six.
