PhotoOp 2017 featured Canon’s Explorer of Light, Adam Jones, and Utah Advertising and Commercial Photographer, Adam Barker. The session started at 9am and went to about 3:16pm at Salt Lake Community College in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The PhotoOp was basically a seminar on tips and techniques these two photographers use to achieve the look they get from their equipment. It was a run-down of some of their software, camera equipment, locations, and commentary on how they were able to achieve great outcomes. The cost for attendance was $30 and you signed up via their website: http://www.wasatchcameraclub.com
What did they cover?
Adam Jones went into the state of today’s market for professional photographers, the type of software he uses, the main gear he has, and went deeply into the importance of using graphic design elements to get fantastic composition. Adam offers photo tours in Yellowstone and Africa.
Adam Barker went into his lifestyle photography tips and how to connect with people in order to get that perfect photo. He also recommended using graduated filters in order to achieve greater color and contrast in your photos. Adam also offers tours and even one-on-one training.
I won’t go into too much detail of what they said during the seminar out of respect to those who paid to be there for this information.
Was it worth it?
It was well worth the time and money. Even though the seminar was quite lengthy, they did break it up with several breaks and time for lunch. In terms of price and what you get, it’s a no-brainer. Being able to connect with a local, professional photography community is also a great benefit. It’s inspiring and makes you want to work harder on your photos.
