“Backyard Fine Art: It is a Small World After All – The Art of Focus Shift Shooting”

Time: 10:30am-11:30am Instructor: Vincent Versace Sponsored by Nikon

Location: Samy’s Camera Santa Ana

Class Description:

“If you want a rainbow, you got to put up with the rain” -Stephen Wright

Sometimes all it takes is slowing down to the speed of life that allows us to see the bigger picture of the world around us. There is just as much grandeur in a simple plainness, the confines of our backyard, as there is in a sweeping gesture like the Grand Canyon or the Taj Mahal. This hour long seminar is about how to see a small moment in a big way, to learn the considerations needed to capture that moment, and how to create an image from that capture to a file ready for output. Using the Focus Shift functionality found in cameras ranging from the Nikon Z30 to the flagship Z9. This seminar will look at how to shoot, near focus, mixed aperture, and what software to use and why.

Vincent Versace is an LA Based photographer and internationally recognized pioneer in the art and science of digital photography. Vincent is a Nikon Ambassador and member of the International Cinematographers Guild. He is a recipient of the Computerworld Smithsonian Award in Media Arts & Entertainment and the Shellenberg fine art award.
