Saturday August 5 – Flora & Fauna of Ottawa West – Ottawa West
Time: 7:30am – Coliseum Theatre Parking Lot, east side, 3090 Carling Ave., east of Bayshore ~ $75.00 per pers
We start early to maximize our capacity to capture lots of great images. Today, we’ll explore open fields looking for blooms, insects, spiders and other tiny animals.
With luck, we might have dew drops adding attractive textures to our compositions. We’ll also look for scenery and landscape along some short trails. Keep it simple… We recommend packing light for the day. Tripod/Monopod, cable release, macro, telephoto and wide angle lenses will all provide great advantage today. A small stool or a pad for your knees might be smart to bring today. Sunscreen lotion, insect repellent, water and a snack is also recommended. As a precaution against unpredictable weather, bring rain gear for you and your camera. This workshop will not be cancelled unless we have severe weather. RAINDATE is August 6! In the unlikely event we plan to postpone the workshop, we will make an announcement on MEETUP Friday, August 4th at 7 PM. Our primary focus today is to capture sharp, dramatic and well-composed images of nature using a variety of camera controls and field techniques (including manual exposure). Please see our MEETUP group for more details and how to register.
