George Lepp is Back for Flower and Macro

Add to Technorati Favorites

George is back in Los Osos again teaching a Flower and Macro course, as always it's a full house. The weather and wildflowers are beautiful so it is shaping up to be a great week. We spent a majority of the day in the digital darkroom with George instructing on the tools, techniques, and procedures required to optimize macro photography. The classroom discussion continued until about 2 PM at which time we packed it up and went to the field. We visited a local hotel with beautiful, native wildflowers as their landscaping. The plan was to ensure the class was comfortable with their equipment and techniques before heading east to shoot the expansive plains of wildflowers about an hour from the school.

The shoot started with George repeating and demonstrating the material from earlier in the day. As the class began to shoot on their own, George and the Institute staff made the rounds to ensure everyone was doing well.

We are also fortunate this week to have another Canon Explorer of Light with us. Vinnie Isola drove down from the bay area to shoot and provide his expertise. Two Explorers of Light for the week is awesome.

Tomorrow we will review and critique our shots from today and prepare for an afternoon, in house shoot. We are bringing in numerous critters to work macro and flash. We never know exactly what is coming but I expect there to be numerous snakes, large insects, and interesting reptiles. Should be fun!

Take care and we will update again tomorrow.
