PHOTOGRAPHY 101 WORKSHOPS WITH ONNE VAN DER WAL

onne-van-der-wal_a-gallery-logolg

Come and join Onne as he explains in a clear, concise and humorous way how to use your DSLR. He will discuss and show examples both on the big screen and in his popular little Photography Reference Guide (included in the photo class fee).
Stop using the P or Auto (Bozo) mode on your camera and start using ALL the settings that the real pros use to create stunning imagery.
YOU need to be in control of your camera not the camera in charge of you! It’s not rocket science!  Once you discover what all the dials do, you will realize that’s its actually quite easy to be the master of your DSLR camera!

CLASS ONE:  The first class is about basic camera controls, We will discuss exposure, aperture, ISO and how to set up your camera correctly, the importance of the histogram plus the benefits of shooting in RAW format not JPEG.

CLASS TWO: The second class is about workflow and post production.  How to download your files from the camera and organize them in a simple method and how to process the files in Lightroom.

Onne will use his laptop and projector to illustrate and explain it all. All you need to bring is a note pad and pencil and your DSLR, if you have one. If you are in the market for a new camera and/or lens we can let you know what the affordable options are.
This class is aimed at anyone who wants to learn the basics of digital photography or the advanced amateur that wants to polish up on his/her photo skills and get to the next level with their photography. This is not an iPhone or Point and Shoot photo class. Although Onne is a Canon Explorer of Light and is sponsored by Canon, this class is open to photographers with any brand of camera.

Instructor Bio:

onne-van-der-wal_smaller-headshot

Onne van der Wal is one of the most prolific and talented marine photographers in the world of sailing. He was born in Holland on February 24, 1956 and raised in Hout Bay,South Africa. Before he learned to walk, he learned to sail aboard his grandfather’s boat. After he progressed through youth sailing training programs, he discovered his passion, ocean racing.

As the bowman and engineer aboard the Dutch maxi

-boat Flyer II, van der Wal won all four legs of the 1981-82 Whitbread Round the Worl

d Race. Along the way, he took his camera with him everywhere he went, even to the top of the mast and the end of the spinnaker pole.

In addition to editorial work, Onne, who is based out of Newport, Rhode Island, has shot for blue chip commercial clients, including Hinckley Yachts, J Boats, North Sails, and Harken.

While he has an artist’s eye for composition and color, Onne is also a perfectionist when it comes to the technical aspects of his craft. As a member of the elite Canon Explorers of Light, a group of the most influential photographers and cinematographers in the world, he is always pushing the equipment  and the technology forward.

He was one of the first marine photographers to go all digital, and is an early adopter of shooting with drones to get that unique perspective that is higher than a stepladder, but lower than a helicopter. He often works with equipment manufacturers to improve their gear and shot the 2013 America’s Cup with a prototype Canon 4K video camera.

Gary Jobson, who won the America’s Cup as tactician aboard Courageous said, “With Onne’s pictures, you feel like you are either on board or you want to be on board. The cool thing about our sport is everything changes, all the time: the wind, the waves, the light, and the sail trim. Onne anticipates those changes to capture beautiful images.”

Despite all of the accolades and accomplishments over a career that has covered more than three decades and all seven seas, Onne van der Wal is always looking forward to the next assignment. With a smile, he said, “There are two things I need to do great work. One is wind and the other is sun.” To see more of Onne van der Wal’s work, visit vanderwal.com.
