Limited Capacity seats available

Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/home. Paige uses a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon lenses including: 24-70L, 135 L.

In this Golden Hour Shooting Experience, Paige Wilks will demonstrate how she poses and interacts with families to bring out their natural emotions. You will have the opportunity to photograph a family while Paige demonstrates the different ways to use golden hour light with an emphasis placed on backlighting.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn to feel comfortable working with families and bringing out their natural emotions.
2. Gain an understanding of how to use light to enhance mood and emotion in your images.
3. Learn how to best select shooting locations.
4. Discuss backlighting in great detail including how to achieve sunflare, how to achieve sharp focus in backlit images, how to meter for a backlit image, and combating haze in your images.

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.
