Shooting Film in the Golden Hour (Sandra Coan)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Join Sandra Coan for a fun evening learning all about how to shoot with film cameras for those who are new to shooting with film. Learn tips and tricks for using film outside during dreamy golden hour light. Attendees will need to supply their own film camera and film. Sandra recommends Porta 800.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understand how to work with natural light when shooting film outside.
2. Learn how to meter for both black and white and color.
3. Learn about what films work best in the golden hour.
4. Practice shooting alongside Sandra and with other attendees who have a budding interest in film photography.

Mission San Jose:
This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at Mission San Jose (just a short 15 minute bus ride from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1720, and known as the "Queen of the Missions," San Jose is the showpiece of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and tells the early story of San Antonio and European expansion in the New World.

The grounds of Mission San Jose is a huge area (over six acres inside the gates) that gives you ample room to photograph kids and families at play. The walls provide great framing opportunities, with many windows and doors all around the perimeter. There are also several stone walls (without doors and windows) if you are looking for plain stone backdrops. You’ll also find some interesting arches next to the church and at the entrance - they, along with the repeating doors and windows, give you the opportunity to use repeating elements in your composition. There are a few big trees throughout, but in many areas you’ll see the wide open sky. You’ll be able to use the walls to help you stay in the shade (if that’s what you are after) or partially block the sun. Because the Mission is massive and is outside of the city, you’ll find plenty of space for shooting outside of the walls as well. The outdoor grounds of Mission San Jose have been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors. There will be a wedding rehearsal going on inside the Mission San Jose Church, so we ask that you remain on the expansive outdoor grounds rather than venturing inside the church.
