Capturing moving subjects with manual focus can be difficult, but this Golden Hour Shooting Experience with Caroline Jensen will share simple techniques for strengthening both of these skills. Flowing fabric, wind, and movement will pair with structured shooting to create images that seem entirely spontaneous and elegant. This session will consist of a shooting demonstration with models and an interactive Q&A followed by a guided open shoot. This program is not a replacement for Caroline's much longer and more in-depth workshop "Shooting 215: Step by Step with Lensbaby" through Clickin Moms University. This 2-hour program is unique and will cover hands-on shooting with Caroline. Please bring your own Lensbaby lenses to this session.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to create, control, and enhance the movement of hair and clothing.
2. Discover ways to make focusing on a moving subject easier when using a Lensbaby.
3. Learn to minimize the chaos of crazy bokeh and dizzying blur in an outdoor environment.

This Golden Hour Shooting Experience will take place at the Alamo (just a short walk from the Marriott Rivercenter). Established in 1724 as Mission San Antonio de Valero – the first mission in San Antonio – the Alamo is known as the "Shrine of Texas Liberty" and is the number one tourist destination in Texas.  

The Alamo has two distinct features— the buildings/walls and the lush greenery. Access to the buildings and walls is fairly easy from outside the Alamo itself or at several points inside the gates. The greenery provides full or partial coverage, allowing you to play with the amount of natural light as well as the direction. Even though you’ll be able to see other photographers due to the layout of the Alamo, you’ll find that creative use of the greenery can give a very private, or “Secret Garden,” feel to your images. There are several benches at a number of places within the walls. If you head outside the gates, you’ll find a bigger common area and more bright, unobstructed sunlight. The Alamo has been reserved for Click Away on this evening, so you won't have to work around public visitors if you plan to remain inside the gates near the Alamo gardens.
