This summer, I am offering very limited opportunities to join me at the track. Each opportunity will include:
Personal instruction, based on your specific needs.
Technical tips on exposure, lighting and composition.
Logistics on how to time your day at the track so that you get every possible shot for each race.
A few "secret" places where the light is magical even in mid-day.
A discussion on vision - how can you make your images look like art, and not iPhone snaps?
Follow up advice and critique on processing your images is also included (via email or phone).
Each day will be limited to a maximum of 3 participants.
More dates will be added if these first three fill up.
If you don't see a date that works for you, let me know. I can try to add a date that does.
You will need:
Camera body and long lens in the 70-200 or 70-300 range, extra batteries and memory cards.
Very comfortable walking shoes.
Weather appropriate clothing - it could be blistering hot and sunny or damp and cold, in Chicago, we just never know.
The ability to stand and also move quickly for at least 3 hours, including climbing up and down stairs.
Cash to pay for your ticket into the track and for refreshments.
I'll send you additional details on how to get there and where to meet after you've registered.
Cost per day per attendee: $50.
