Canon is the host of this Golden Hour Shooting Experience program.  

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/home. Carrie Anne uses a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon lenses.

In this evening program, Carrie Anne Miranda will cover different ways to use backlighting as a means to enhance images. She will go over the basics of backlighting, along with some creative techniques using aperture, angles, and positioning our subjects. Carrie Anne will cover creative effects for using the sun to enhance the subjects in our images, including sun flare, starbursts and haze. When used purposefully, the sun can have an emotional and creative impact on images. Attendees will photograph models to highlight the techniques used in the class. Time will be allotted for Q&A.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to use golden hour light to enhance your images.
2. Learn to use aperture to shape the sun in different ways (flare, starburst, and haze).
3. Learn about the emotional impact the sun can have on images.
4. Discuss angles and positioning and how backlighting can change the look of the images you create.

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.
