Aviation Photography Workshop Series Returns to the CAF in Atlanta, 3/28-30
Photographs of aircraft and their crewmembers from the Second World War have served to inspire several generations of photographers, becoming icons for both portrait and aviation photographers worldwide. Camera technology has advanced dramatically, along with the digital post-processing tools that allow photographers to both emulate and improve upon the images that inspire them. With this in mind, 3G Aviation Media (http://www.3gaviationmedia.com) conducts workshops that teach photographers the organizational skills to set up a dramatic photo shoot, along with the technical skills to capture, edit and craft spectacular images of classic aircraft.
March 28-30 at the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) - Dixie Wing's hangar at Falcon Field in Peachtree City, GA, workshop participants from all walks of life and all levels of photography skill will have the chance to make these kinds of iconic photographs while sharpening their skills as photographers. 3G Aviation Media and the CAF - Dixie Wing have paired together to provide participants not only a glimpse into the Dixie Wing's stunning array of vintage aircraft, but also to provide a unique opportunity for photographers eager to develop their current skill set. Topics at the workshop will include planning and executing static sunrise and sunset photo shoots, photographing models and re-enactors, learning about working with aircraft and flight line safety, shooting aircraft details, post-processing and work-flow techniques, and how to critique images.
This workshop is the second in a series where 3G Aviation Media has collaborated with the CAF - Dixie Wing to bring photographers together with classic aviation subjects. The combination of the Dixie Wing Squadron's mission to "honor American military aviation through flight, exhibition, and remembrance", with the mission of 3G Aviation Media to "provide attendees an opportunity to learn, plan, execute, and develop as photographers in a small group environment while working with first-rate aviation subjects," guarantees that attendees will have an experience like no other. The entire workshop series is available for registration at: http://3gaviationmedia.com/workshop/.
As a previous workshop attendee Kedar Karmarkar said in his blog:
"All in all, it was a fantastic workshop for me - the little tips and tricks that help much... they shared a lot of info, in the workshop - and are a great bunch of guys to hang around as well."
