Nikonians Academy June-July preview
Nikonians Academy instructors Greg Stangl, Jim Stamates and Michael Mariant will highlight the June Calendar this year.
Greg Stangl starts the month with his Secrets of Studio and Environmental Portraiture workshop in Chicago. In this three-day (June 3-6) interactive workshop you will be exposed to a series of lectures, slide shows, and lighting and posing demonstrations that will make your learning experience fun and meaningful.
You will learn to pose the male and female form while also understanding how to pose couples and groups.
This workshop will help you discover and develop your creativity while offering you lessons in studio, window light, and environmental portraiture.
Join Jim and Kathy Stamates for four wild days (June 5-8) to learn, shoot, and experience Grand Teton National Park in the spring.
You will shoot the Wildlife of Grand Teton National Park. Wildlife species may include; Moose, Bison, Elk, Pronghorn, Black and Grizzly Bears, Coyote, Fox, River Otters, Beavers, and Wolves. We will concentrate on finding subjects with young.
We will also look for Bald Eagles, Great Horned Owls, Trumpeter Swans, Sandhill Cranes and Osprey. Many of them will be nesting, as will smaller birds. We will also look for Ruffed Grouse displaying.
Landscapes will include the Snake River, Oxbow Bend, Schwabacher Landing, Moulton Barn, and Jackson and Jenny Lakes.
The Giant Redwoods of Northern California photo adventure with Michael Mariant (June 27-30) will focus not only on the 'where' to take the pictures, but also on the 'how' to take pictures, incorporating photographic education throughout the workshop at each location.
With thousands of redwood trees clustered in hundreds of groves tucked away in Northern California, this workshop brings you to the perfect and ideal redwood groves, at times and locations predetermined to be the best photographic opportunity.
This truly is a collaboration of extensive, comprehensive landscape photography education coupled with a dynamic location.
Video with your digital SLR is the new rage and we've created two very cool workshops focused on this visual technique. Michael Mariant will be leading these workshops.
The first is a Timelapse Photography Workshop in San Francisco (July 12) where you will learn how to put together stunning timelapse videos. The second workshop in Santa Barbara, CA (August 30) is titled Video and Cinematography with Your DSLR and is designed to help you learn video from creating the footage to editing it in software.
