A Day with Joe McNally at Unique Photo (Nikon)

Class Code:
UUU087
Skill Level:
Everyone

Spend the day with internationally acclaimed, award-winning photographer Joe McNally for a presentation and live demo shoot during Unique Photo's Nikon Takeover weekend!

11am - 12:30pm: The Light and the Life + Q&A
Light is language for a photographer, and Joe will show how he has used light in many ways, shapes and forms during his career as a shooter for magazines like National Geographic, LIFE, and Sports Illustrated, as well as many commercial clients. McNally will show examples of light and light theory, and discuss survival strategies derived from many years on the road, on assignment, camera in hand. This presentation will be a lively mix of pictures, technique and laughter; a talk where stories and knowledge will be shared and inspiration gained.

12:30pm - 1:30pm: Lunch Break

1:30pm - 4:30pm: Concept to Completion - Building the Shot LIVE
Quality, color and direction are the big three of light. Joe will explore the ability of the location photographer, using both big and small flash, to create shadow, graphic power and drama, in pursuit of rendering a storytelling photograph. The three hours will be a build in pursuit of a picture, starting small and evolving a scene while solving problems along the way. Working with models, Joe will demonstrate light, interact with subjects, and offer advice on technique and approach. Joe and his lights are well-traveled and he is noted for being completely candid and open with the life and times of being a photographer.
