Summer Decay Workshop 2019

Outlawed Restorations

Are you interested in “Decay Photography,”  maybe you just enjoy automotive photography?  Either way, I’ve got you covered!  Outlawed Restorations is a rat rod builder’s workshop located in East Bend, NC. The rusty landscape is ever changing but there are always interesting shells of cars as well as a few rat rods scattered around the property.  There is no end to the compositions that can be found here. Whether you are interested in photographing cars mixed with the landscape, or you prefer intimate details…this is the workshop for you!  We will cover basic concerns with this type of photography, as well as concentrating on overall compositions with plenty of detail shots thrown in for good measure.  I will also have a short Lightroom tutorial at the end to show what is possible with these images after the capture.  This is your workshop, so be sure and bring lots of questions for me.  My goal is to make you a better photographer in this genre.

Location: East Bend, NC  (address to be given out to participants by email)

Date: Saturday, Sept 7, 2019 (Full day planned from 8-5)

Cost: $175.00 per person

Limit: 6 Participants

Transportation: Driving conditions will be on paved roads but carpooling is recommended due to somewhat limited parking.

Facilities:  Unfortunately, there are no restrooms available at this location.  There is  fire station a short distance from the shop which can be utilized.

Meals:  There will be a lunch break, and you can either pack a lunch (recommended), or there are a limited number of restaurants in the area.

Fitness Level: This is a relatively flat property, but good quality shoes are recommended as there will be some possibility of standing in tall brush for certain compositions.

Gear: Food, drinks, charged batteries, memory cards, lenses, tripods, polarizers and/or ND Grad filters.  We will be outside so dress for the weather which will likely be really hot.

Note: Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment for this workshop.  Bring manuals for any specific operating questions to your particular model. If you need filters, be sure to visit www.Singh-Ray.com and use KISER10 at checkout for a 10% discount on your order.  Also bring lots of questions as to what you are wanting to learn.  As the host of a workshop, I don’t want to override your own personal creative choices without an invitation.  This is your workshop, and I am here to help you become a better photographer.
