Florida Photo Caravan: South Beach Shoot #1

Photograph by Rick Sammon
We're on the last stop of my Florida Photo Caravan: South Beach.

We set out this morning to something a bit different from the past week: simply go out and shoot and have fun. We looked for cool colors, patters, reflection and of course subjects. We found 'em all.

I encouraged the students to work with reflections. Here's one of my favorites – enhanced with Topaz Adjust/Spicify.

I also encouraged the students to use their cameras like a spaceship – tilting them up and down and left and right. Here's my example. Yes, another Topaz/Spicify effect.

More pix to come from our talented and dedicated team.

Oh yeah, after our fun shoot, we spent an hour on a flash class. More good fun.

For street shots like this, I use my Canon 17-40mm lens on my Canon 5D Mark II.
