Rear Curtain Sync Workshop

This Meetup will be about learning to use a flash to freeze your subject while still showing motion in the background. We will also be explaining how to create light streaks associated with a moving object or person. We will demonstrate techniques on creating "ghosts" in your images, freezing motion and creating dynamic images using slow shutter speeds and a flash. There will be plenty of time to practice and work on these techniques.

We will start in the park at the end of Charlotte Street and move to other locations to demonstrate different techniques.

When you leave, your camera will be set up so that you can practice what you have learned anytime you would like to give it a try.

For this Meetup you will need your camera and an external flash. A tripod will be helpful, bring one if you have one.

    Thank you Vincent and Andre: I learned very interesting techniques that I can now use in various situations. It was also a pleasure to meet Larry and George.

    Where is this going to be? How far will this event be located from DC?

    • Vincent K.

      The location will be somewhere in Fredericksburg which is about 45 minutes from DC with no traffic. Weekend traffic can be hard to predict so allowing 75 minutes to get to Fredericksburg would be good.

    I'm interested in this. Another workshop in DC will keep me busy until 4:30. So, right now I'm non-committal. Keeping my eye on this one.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
