Join Photography Instructor Dave Henry for an intensive, hands-on workshop on photographing the solar eclipse. This event was designed for the photographer who wants to leave nothing to chance when preparing to photograph the solar eclipse.
In our hands-on workshop, you will learn and practice the essential steps for photographing a solar eclipse:
• How to choose the right camera and lens
• How to mount a solar filter correctly
• How to practice focusing and tracking the sun
• How to create correct exposure using solar filters
• How to exercise personal safety
In addition, you will go through a series of shooting drills where you simulate the 17 steps you will need to take during the 2 1/2 minutes the eclipse travels overhead. There is no room for error with this short time frame, and our drills will help build the confidence you need on August 21st.
After the shoot, you will go back to the classroom where we will work through the steps of post processing your images to export spectacular imagery.

You’ll not only shoot with the best instructors—you’ll shoot with the best gear. Workshop attendees can access a range of Canon “dream gear,” including the latest EOS cameras and lenses, with Canon instructors ready to offer their technical and creative assistance every step of the way.
