Precision Camera, Fujifilm, and For Spite Creative present:
HANDS-ON CONCERT PHOTOGRAPHY
JUNE 26, 2019 | EMPIRE CONTROL ROOM | $89
with Matt from Fujifilm
Austin is well known as the "Live Music Capital of the World." So, let's take advantage of that and learn how to make better images of musicians in low light settings. From getting the gig to learning techniques for successfully shooting small or large concerts, concert photographer Casey Holder and Matt from Fujifilm will share variables that you are sure to encounter, as well as tips for overcoming them.
We’ll get down to the nitty gritty of what to expect when preparing to shoot a show or concert, some of the pitfalls that you'll want to avoid as well as the "must have" shots that you should always get. We will also cover etiquette and how to make sure you're courteous and unobtrusive with your craft.
This class will be open to no more than 25 students who will have exclusive early access to Empire Control Room to learn from Casey & Matt, along with the opportunity to photograph the opening band during their private soundcheck and rehearsal. Fujifilm will provide FREE loaner equipment to students including camera bodies and fast prime lenses that are optimal for photographing in the low-light scenarios you'll find in a majority of Austin's venues. At 9 p.m., the venue will open to the public for a free show sponsored by Precision Camera and Fujifilm. You will be able to shoot with Fujifilm loaner equipment for the entire show.
The class and the subsequent concert will take place at Empire Control Room, 606 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78701. The venue is downtown and parking can be tough. Consider ride share options or arriving early to find street parking in Downtown Austin. Please visit the venue's WEBSITE for more information.
