Mirrorless Minutes is proud to announce their first photography workshop called Small Town to Downtown taking place Saturday and Sunday July 18&19, 2015. Join Olympus Visionary, Jamie MacDonald and Mike Boening as they travel to their favorite spots in the Michigan countryside and in Detroit. This workshop will be kept small, only 10 photographers, so early registration is encouraged. Knowing that we have some miles to cover from the city to the country, we will be including transportation in the workshop fee. Our travels will be together in one vehicle so we can reduce the time between locations and parking in the city.
Mike will take us to some very interesting spots to capture the feel of Detroit and its urban art scene. Saturday morning will start by visiting the grand architectural magnificence of Michigan Central Station. The train station is abandoned but we can capture images of the location from the outside, which can be amazing. We will not be entering into abandoned buildings on this trip. After the train station our travels will lead us to some of the coolest Urban Art locations in the city. We will go to a few of the well-known urban art areas as well as a couple that are less known but offer some amazing views. Next will be one of the coolest areas in Detroit, Greektown. We will visit the area with some time to take pictures as well as dine in one of their many great restaurants. Once full and rested we will head over to the People Mover for our next location, the Millner Center parking garage where we can capture amazing images of The Renaissance Center, GM’s World HQ, and other landmarks from atop the garage. Following our nighttime session you will be taken back to the Workshop HQ.
Sunday morning we will meet VERY early and head out to the country portion of our trip. Jamie is putting together some amazing places to capture rural Michigan at its best. We will explore farmlands to old country roads and points of interest in between. After a full morning of shooting we head back to the Workshop HQ for our post processing session. A room has been reserved for our class to select and process their best images of the weekend. A couple hours will be spent on post processing and selecting your best 5 best images for our class slideshow to end the day.
This workshop is expected to give you the chance to unplug from your daily routine and focus on the hobby you love, photography. You will meet like-minded people and find that the camaraderie built during the weekend will last long past Sunday. Give yourself the opportunity to experience a great time with some great people capturing great images. An Early Bird Registration Fee is available for a limited time so act now.
