Details For Workshop:
This is an interactive workshop designed with two objectives. The first objective is to have Norman Kent as your personal coach. He will address your specific needs and questions. The second goal is to compare and exchange information with other photographers. Each fellow photographer is equipped with individual skills and ideas, all interested in experimenting and learning from one another. There will be a wealth of knowledge available to you for the duration of the workshop.
Each workshop has unique format. Some are classroom only workshops as these are perfect for the non-jumping season or when bad weather inhibits jumping. Practical session workshops are designed for times when you will be in action shooting during an event or planned excursion. Combined session workshops are a mix of classroom and practical sessions which is ideal when there is opportunity to incorporate both experiences. The style of workshop is determined by a number of variables including time of year, venue, geographic location, etc. Please look at the details of each specific workshop before registering.
The Classroom Session Workshops
Think of the classroom as a place for technical support, exchange of information, and as a bank of ideas to reference and take home with you. Classroom sessions are designed to teach the theory and techniques of photography. Classroom sessions also incorporate sharing of ideas and material between photographers, and receiving constructive critique to improve your skills.
The Practical Session Workshops
The primary emphasis for this workshop is time spent shooting in the field. Instruction for technique is directly implemented and feedback provided on-the-spot. You will receive the benefit of practical application in multiple facets of shooting, directly and immediately incorporating techniques from your experience.
Combined Session Workshops
Both practical and classroom sessions combined make a complete unit. You will receive guidance to plan your shooting day and to execute that plan efficiently. This structure maximizes the opportunity of learning multiple level photography techniques and the direct product from integrating that instruction into your shots.
When working side by side with other photographers, you will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and network, adding colleague resources for future experimentation. Many photographers find it helpful to take turns shooting each other in freefall. Imagine what you can learn from observing yourself. Norman will help debrief your jump, providing additional input and analysis. Combining direct observation of yourself and the instructional recommendation will maximize your learning opportunity.
