Fresh from the success of their popular aviation photography workshop at Stallion 51 in Kissimmee, Florida, the talented staff from 3G Aviation Media return to the Commemorative Air Force’s Dixie Wing hangar in Peachtree City, near Atlanta, Georgia for another seminar over the weekend of March 28th thru 30th, 2014. 3G Aviation Media and the CAF – Dixie Wing have paired up to not only provide participants with access to the Dixie Wing’s stunning array of vintage aircraft, but also a unique opportunity for photographers of every level to enhance their current skill set. Topics at the workshop will include planning and executing static sunrise and sunset photo shoots, photographing models and re-enactors, learning about working with aircraft and flight line safety, shooting aircraft details, post-processing and work-flow techniques, and how to critique images.
This workshop marks the second time 3G Aviation Media has collaborated with the Dixie Wing to bring photographers together with classic aviation subjects. The combination of the Dixie Wing’s mission to “honor American military aviation through flight, exhibition, and remembrance,” and 3G Aviation Media’s determination to “provide attendees an opportunity to learn, plan, execute, and develop as photographers in a small group environment while working with first-rate aviation subjects,” guarantees that attendees will have an experience like no other.
As a previous workshop attendee Kedar Karmarkar said in his blog:
“All-in-all, it was a fantastic workshop for me – the little tips and tricks help so much. They shared a lot of info in the workshop, and are a great bunch of guys to hang around as well.”
The three ”G”s of 3G Aviation Media, Tony Granata, Doug Glover, and Matt Genuardi, each bring to the workshop series their various areas of expertise in photographing aircraft. Tony Granata instructs in image post-processing and has extensive aerial photographic experience shooting from helicopters. Matt Genuardi’s specialty is working with models and off-camera lighting equipment. Doug Glover adds yet another aspect with his tutorial covering “packing for the location”, using small strobe lights. Glover will also discuss how to work with aircraft and aircrew effectively and safely. The workshop expects to have the Dixie Wing’s rare SBD-5 Dauntless, FG-1D Corsair and LT-6D “Mosquito” available for the lectures. In addition to the vintage aircraft, the Dixie Wing and 3G have arranged for the availability of re-enactors and models during the workshop.
The partnership between the CAF Dixie Wing and 3G Aviation Media for this workshop is truly a rare opportunity for aviation photography enthusiasts.
