SIGN UP FOR GPP2013 UPDATES
Shoot the City is a hands-on workshop, designed to teach you the technical and creative skills you need in order to create technically excellent and aesthetically stunning images of Dubai.
On Day 1, we will all meet at the first location and will start with a short briefing session, a discussion covering both the technical and aesthetic skills you'll need for this workshop.
During this shoot we'll be concentrating on how to create unique and compelling images: images that convey both the scale and detail of the fascinating architecture of this location.
For our second shoot we'll be heading over to the Palm Jumeirah to shoot the sunset, twilight, and the beginning of night, and will concentrate on how to make the most of the available light and how to create images combining both ambient and artificial light.
For our final shoot, from the rooftop bar of the Four Points Sheraton hotel, we will work through a range of techniques you can use to create stunning night shots: how to photograph architecture at night, how to incorporate movement into your images, and how to capture and convey the magic of Dubai at night.
Finally you will have the choice to cap the night with David and the rest of the group at the rooftop bar for a drink or you can opt to be dropped back to your cars at the first location (DIFC).
Please note that the all locations are subject to final confirmation. Since you will be visiting 3 different locations please be prepared that you will spend a considerable amount of time on the road, starting times are accurate but finish time might be slightly altered depending on the traffic situation.
Day 2 will be a critique session and a discussion on what worked for you, what didn't and why it didn't. This is where a lot of the learning is usually sealed. If time permits David will also show you a few post processing tricks.
