Expand the possibilities of the way you see through your lens! Join Celeste Pavlik in this Golden Hour Shooting Experience and learn how to incorporate Freelensing, Lensbaby, and/ or Macro work into your genre. Whether the subject is portraiture, landscape, architecture, or street, you will learn what to look for in a scene in order to create the most compelling composition.

Engage in an open dialogue and conversation with Celeste as you walk around San Antonio while putting into practice one or more of these specialty lenses or techniques.

In addition, a neck strap and either a tabletop tripod or tripod for camera stabilization is suggested.

Learning Objectives:
1. Discuss freelensing, macro, and Lensbaby photography with a strong emphasis on using light, form, and shadows.
2. Learn what freelensing is and discuss safety considerations.
3. Learn about Lensbaby lenses, how to manipulate your plane of focus, adjust settings, and how to use live view.
4. Learn about the macro lens, how to use manual focus, and optimal camera settings for macro photography.

This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at La Villita Historic Arts Village (just a short walk from the Marriott Rivercenter). Located on the south bank of the San Antonio River, La Villita Historic Arts Village was one of San Antonio’s first neighborhoods. It was originally a settlement of primitive huts for the Spanish soldiers stationed at the Mission San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo). In 1939, as ground broke on the San Antonio River Walk development, city leaders acted to preserve this colorful part of San Antonio’s history.

Today La Villita is a thriving art community that houses several shops, galleries, and cafes with a wonderful ambiance in the evening. It also gives you great river access at one of the widest points of the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk. You’ll find several opportunities to capture color — many of the buildings have interesting walls/trim allowing for great framing opportunities and striking color palettes. You’ll likely have the feeling that you are in a small village with the tree- and shop-lined paths.
