Backlighting with Atmosphere (Mickie DeVries)
Limited Capacity seats available

Mickie is sponsored by X-rite
http://xritephoto.com/

Join Mickie DeVries for a fun evening of shooting in which you will concentrate on backlighting subjects while also including the surrounding environment and atmosphere. Mickie will demonstrate what she looks for in terms of atmosphere and how she shoots to highlight both the subjects and the environment. You will enjoy shooting and modeling for each other during this no stress, fun session! After the conclusion of the conference, attendees will receive a downloadable editing video demonstrating how Mickie edits backlit photos. Attendees are welcome to use any lens, however Mickie will be shooting with a wider lens and recommends the same for attendees.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to choose a location that provides filtered backlight and atmosphere.
2. Learn how to determine what in the environment adds to the shot/story rather than distracts from it.
3. Learn how to meter, set white balance, and shoot to highlight the subject and background.
4. Learn how to achieve a sunburst.
5. Learn how to reduce or add haze and sunflare.

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.
