Great American Eclipse and Yellowstone N.P. and more
August 17 – 23 2017
Description of Workshop:
Join Joe Cosentino, Sonny Portacio in eastern Idaho for a week of photography, leading up to the main event of the Greta American Eclipse. We have chosen Eastern Idaho because this is the area of the country with the best chance of having clear skies at the time of the eclipse. We are not just going to be waiting for Monday August 21st to come along, we are planning a week of photography in several locations. As a group we will staying about 30 minutes from the western gate to Yellowstone National Park, Can’t pass up a great opportunity to photograph in one of our most famous National parks. If you are looking for an unusual place to get some beautiful photographs we will be heading to the Craters of the moon National Monument.
If you have an interest in flash photography our housing arrangement will allow us to set up a studio where you can try out off camera flash with models. Learn how to control ambient light and get proper flash exposure on your subject.
The main event – on the day of the Eclipse we will travel to a remote location where we will have a 360 degree view of the sky. With this view you will witness the colors of a 360 degree sunset, during totality. Eclipse glass will be provided for our participants. Solar filters will be available for your camera so you can capture the shadow of the moon as it moves across the suns surface. For more information on the Eclipse check out this web site
