About the Workshop
I will teach you two techniques on how to capture fireworks. One will give you "traditional" results and the other will give you some very creative and unique effects. Written materials will be provided for your reference.
During the fireworks show, it will be challenging to adequately help with the technicians (things happen very fast and it will be noisy). We will spend time prior to the fireworks show going over the techniques and practicing them.
