Angling for Photos with Rick Hafele
Rick Hafele, noted fly fishing entomologist, is offering a special photography workshop for anglers. Rick has spent decades taking photos to help illustrate his fly-fishing articles and books. This is a unique opportunity to learn from Rick how to take photos of insects, fly patterns, fish, and fishing scenes worthy of hanging on your wall.
Course schedule and contents:
Friday, October 11, 2019 from 7-9pm (@ Portland Fly Shop):
- Equipment for different types of photos. - Camera and lens options for:
- Macro photography for insects and fly patterns - Fish shots & landscapes - Lighting options - Tripod or handheld? What you need for both. - Simple photo editing with Adobe Lightroom (including focus stacking if
there is interest in the class). - Storing and organizing your photos - Do it or regret it!
Saturday, October 12, 2019 from 11am-3pm (@ Maupin, OR):
Get your gear out and lets take some photos along the banks of the Deschutes River! Rick will demonstrate camera set up and techniques for macro shots of insects for both adults and nymphs, how to get great shots of fish (without harming them!), and what to consider when taking fishing photos and scenic shots of the river. The group will then have the opportunity to work with their own equipment and shoot some photos. Rick will be on hand to answer questions about equipment, camera settings, composition, and more.
Who is this class for?
If you are interested in taking interesting and engaging photos of your fishing trips this class is for you. While the class is suitable for any skill level, at a minimum you should have a good working knowledge of your camera. Most of the course will focus on the use of DSLR cameras, but the information will be applicable to any type of digital camera. You’ll also be able to ask Rick plenty of bug and fishing questions!
Course limited to the first 6 people who sign up! Cost: $150/person
