Photo Walk in Stanley Park With a Travel Photographer
About your host
For 35+ years, I have been a photography buff and have had my own photography business for 15+ of those years. I have been fortunate to teach photography to high school, elementary school, and private students. In November 2015 my wife and I set out to pursue travel photography. We have visited 33 countries so far and have a goal of reaching 50 countries in the span of 50 months. I hope to share my experiences with travelers and give you hints on how to pursue your passion.
What we’ll do
Nature photography, composition, and shooting techniques will be focal points on this photo walk through my neighbourhood. We will walk along the Stanley Park Seawall Path and talk about making ordinary photos extraordinary through composition choices. We will make a stop at Morton Park and challenge ourselves to try different compositions and aperture/shutter speed settings with the A-maze-ing Laughter statues. Get ready to pose. As we walk along the Sea Wall, we will try long exposure photography using neutral density and polarizer filters. We will cut through Stanley Park on the forest trails and head to the Lost Lagoon. We will go over camera settings and experiment with manual exposures, bracketing and exposure compensation. We will walk through Vancouver's West End and wrap up in my favourite small coffee shop, where we can go over any last minute questions. I will be happy to guide you with your gear selection. I use Fujifilm X-series but am familiar with most DLSR and mirrorless systems, and I am not sponsored or affiliated with any brand. I have a selection of Fujifilm X-Series lenses, which you are welcome to try out. Just let me know and I will make sure to bring along.
