It's the Year of the Water Snake! Join HCP on a guided tour of Houston’s Lunar New Year Celebrations with one of HCP’s award winning instructors! The celebration takes place at Viet Hoa center, a large shopping center, which will be completely transformed with vendors, performers, fireworks, and martial arts demos to create a visually rich environment. This year, the festival coordinators have invited the vendors to dress in their traditional garb, which will make for interesting images of people as well as performances. This will allow us to focus on portraiture during this celebration, but we also suggest bringing your telephoto lenses to the event.
Images taken during this PhotoSafari will be posted the Lunar New Year Houston's website along with credit to each photographer.
This Photo Safari will begin with a 30 minute overview of basic portraiture skills at HCP. Students are then encouraged to take photographs using the techniques they have learned in this short introduction. Small class sizes allow instructors to pay individual attention to students while on location. The optional, second listed day of course will take place at HCP and will allow students to get feedback on their images.
Students will meet at HCP, 1441 West Alabama, Houston TX 77006 on February 16th at 11am. We will then carpool to Viet Hoa Center @ Beltway Plaza
This hands-on Photo Safari will encourage you to seek out new and exciting locations for your photo-shoots as well as enrich your future travel photography.
Sessions are open to photographers of all skill levels.
