Foundations of Photography 104 – White Balance, Color Temp, and Backlighting
August 27 @ 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.
About this Lesson
Andrew Taylor will explore the art and science of white balance and color temperature. This course covers how to adjust your camera’s white-balance settings and what to do when the auto white balance goes wrong. The discussion will explore optional aids for white balance calibration, and scenarios where inaccurate color may well enhance, adding to the right stylistic choice. Backlighting will also be discussed as a way to expand your creative options in your photography. You will learn ways to make the most of shooting into the sun or a bright light source.
