THIS EVENT IS CANCELED FOR THE FOLLOWING THREE REASON.
1 - THE PARK HAS DELAYED THE SWITCH TO SUMMER HOURS AND THE PARK WILL BE CLOSING AS SOON AS WE GET THERE.
2 - THE COLDEST SPRING IN 30 YEARS HAS RESULTED IN THE WORSE BLACK FLYS IN 30 YEARS. THE HATCH WAS SATURDAY AND THE BUGS ARE THICK.
3 - THE RAIN WILL MAKE THE RIVER LOOK LIKE A MUD SLIDE
Are you interested in landscape photography but aren't getting the results you want. This is the workshop for you.
Although the workshop is free you will have to pay to enter the park.
You need a couple things for this workshop. Your own camera and lens, a neutral density filter (Sony sells these, get the right size for your lens... http://store.sony.ca/neutral-density-filter-zid31-VF67NDAM/cat-31-catid-All-Cameras-Alpha-DSLR-Accessories?_t=pfm%3Dcategory), a polarizing filter, (Sony sells these, get the right size for your lens.... http://store.sony.ca/circular-polarizing-filter-zid31-VF62CPAM/cat-31-catid-All-Cameras-Alpha-DSLR-Accessories?_t=pfm%3Dcategory), a tripod, a pair of boots would be nice (Sony doesn't sell these, get the right size for your feet).
Join the Sony of Canada team and learn interesting and successful techniques for landscape photography. We'll be meeting at the parking lot of Hilton Falls Conservation Area west of Milton, Ontario. Then it's a 40 minute hike to the waterfall, the trail is Ok at the start but is rough near the end. Not suitable for everyone and it seems to be up-hill both ways. You'll also have to walk across a river so the boots are useful, and I don't mean walk across a bridge, I mean walk across a river.
When we get there we'll go over the skills needed to take a great landscape photo, including using the two filters, dragging the shutter, getting great depth of field, use of the tripod, composition, High Dynamic Range, and shooting in black and white. Then we'll cross the river and crawl back to the cars. Hey maybe bring a flashlight as well.
Since Sony is paying for this meetup, only Sony cameras can be used at this event.
We're shooting rain or shine, so if the weather turns ugly, bring an umbrella.
This meetup is perfect for Sony cameras like the Alpha, NEX or RX family.
Attendance and "No Shows". If you can't make the event please cancel 24 hours before the start of the event. If you fail to cancel you'll be recorded as a "No Show" and if this continues, you'll be dropped from future events.
