Photographing Motion Outdoor
with Joe McNally
Join Joe McNally for a day of on-location shooting as he demonstrates different techniques for showing the world in motion. From capturing a moving cyclist on a wooded trail to showing the motion of flowing fabric and hair to creating a complex scene with a moving ambulance, Joe steps you through the process of pulling all of the pieces together and then modifying them on the fly to meet real world conditions. Every shoot has its challenges and you get a front row seat watching a master draw on years of experience to make the adjustments needed to get the shot. BUY COURSE
