Well-known Adirondack photographer Manuel “Manny” Palacios will teach an outdoor photography workshop Saturday, October 28, from 1:00 to 6:00 pm (rain date October 29). The workshop is sponsored by Champlain Area Trails (CATS) and presents a rare opportunity to learn from a master photographer.
The class will meet on CATS’ Black Kettle Trail and will cover general guidelines for composition, as well as how to properly expose for landscapes and how to take advantage of available light. Participants should bring a DSLR or Mirrorless interchangeable lens camera with lens(es) and a tripod, if possible.
Widely recognized for his photos showcasing the beauty of the region, Palacios says of his work, “For me, landscape photography is not just a means for documenting moments, but rather a way to feel and artistically interpret landscapes. I am truly fascinated with night, twilight and astrophotography, and I love pushing photography to its technical limits”
Palacios enjoys teaching others as well. “I love showing people how to get the most from their cameras,” says Palacios. “In workshops, I go through the basics to understand your technical level and show you my mindset (understanding mood) and approach (understanding composition) to a scene.”
The cost is $20 per person. Class size is limited and registration is required by calling the CATS office at (518) 962-2287 or online at www.champlainarearails.com/our-events/.
