Foundations of Photography 103 – Lenses and Filters
July 9 @ 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
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.
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.
The course is $125.00 or $25.00 per class.
