Last week we ran the Bike Race Photo Safari – we had a good turnout and people were challenged by the fast paced fun.
Participants learned about isolating riders full frame (and in focus), stealing facial expressions from speedy cyclists, accentuating the speed with some panning and telling the story from the start/finish line.
Applaud the participant’s photos in this post – they did really well! They also sent their safari thoughts:
“Harry’s many tips (focusing, exposure, ways to capture cyclists) were so simple and easy to understand and yet made a huge impact on my images!” Sarah
“Harry, you are constantly coming up with innovative workshops. This Safari was brilliant! It gives us seasoned photographers opportunities to shoot something different and brush up on our skills. (ahem… exposure).
Thanks so much for being Harry. You are always so consistent with making sure everyone understands the concept and getting it in our cameras. I have been to a number of workshops and the instructor is just busy getting his own shots, really. You are the best instructor out there.” Cheryl (ed note: Cheryl makes me blush!! Thanks Cheryl)
“I quite enjoyed it, it was the perfect race for a safari and I picked up some good tips for achieving manual focus. You have an excellent teaching style and will definitely take more courses from you in the future.” Jeff
