Learn how to use light as a means of enhancing the honest, authentic moments captured in the lives of clients, family and friends. In this Golden Hour Shooting Experience with Lauren Mitchell, you will learn to capture your own stories while enhancing emotion and mood with the use of golden hour light. Additionally, you will shoot in tricky lighting situations (if applicable) to challenge yourselves to be able to anticipate the moment over the perfect setting.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to enhance mood with light and understand how light and emotion go hand-in-hand.
2. Learn how to be aware of the emotion of any given moment during a shoot and how to position yourself to make the most of the available light.
3. Learn to work what you've got -- how to shoot in tricky lighting situations; put the moment before the perfect setting.

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.
