Photography Workshop - Southeastern Railway Museum
Saturday, October 23, 2010
8:00 AM - 2:00 PM
The Southeastern Railway Museum (SRM) is located on 35 acres in Duluth, GA. It was started in 1970 and features over 90 items including retired Pullman cars and classic steam locomotives. SRM offers the opportunity to stand beside and walk into restored cars of all varieties. You can even stand on the platform of the private car once used by President Warren G. Harding. In addition to the trains and cars, SRM is home to many MARTA buses and rail cars.
The participants will meet in the Showcase Photo parking lot at 8:00am and be shuttled by bus to the event location. A representative from Tamron will be on hand to loan a full array of Tamron lenses in mounts to fit your Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony cameras.
David has some special exercises planned which will take until lunch time where a box lunch will be provided in the old dining cars. After lunch there will be one on one time with David to answer some questions. The bus will return to Showcase around 2:00pm for prize drawings and a chance to get to know the folks at Showcase and see the latest in photographic product.
SRM offers the photographer an opportunity to photograph pieces of history. David will teach the proper techniques to expose for HDR, image blending or straight exposure in sometimes tricky lighting situations. Some of the cars are still in a state of repair offering great macro opportunities. SRM has some of the best locations to learn and practice environmental portraiture. David will demonstrate the use of portable lighting to achieve perfect exposures in mixed lighting situations. There are few places a photographer can go to capture macro, architectural and environmental portraiture, but the Southeastern Railway Museum offers all this and more. Spend several hours learning and photographing in this photographer's paradise.
