The Lantern Fest is an event everyone should experience at least once in their life. It is a spectacle of light that creates a truly unique experience, particularly for photographers. Pictureline has teamed up with the Lantern Fest coming to Salt Lake City this May to present a workshop and special event for photographers of every experience level. We invite you to join us at the Utah Motorsports Campus for a presentation on how to best capture the lanterns through your lens as they float away in the twilight. The thousands of lanterns gathered together in the sky create some incredible photo opportunities.
What to Expect:
Pictureline will have a designated section of the campus for our event. We will gather there (more information on location will be sent to your email a few days before the event) and do a presentation on how to set your camera and be prepared for getting some great shots of the lanterns.
4:00 - 7:00pm: Before sundown there is food, live music, a stage show, face painting, s’mores, balloon artists, dancing and more to enjoy. We encourage you to arrive as early as possible, because parking is limited.
- 7:00 - 7:15pm: We'll start to gather for the workshop.
- 7:15 - 7:45pm: Tom, from pictureline, will present to you for approximately 30 minutes, to go over composition techniques, metering, white balance, and proper settings for your camera to optimally capture the lanterns floating away.
- 7:45 - 9:00pm: Find spots to shoot, hang out with fellow photographers, enjoy event.
9:00 - 10:00pm: Lanterns will be launched! Get your cameras ready!
The price of admission to the Lantern Fest is included with purchase of this workshop. You will also receive a lantern and a lesson on proper composition, metering, and white balance for the event. Parking is not included in the price and it is a $10 fee per car, so we do recommend meeting up with friends and carpooling. Price of the workshop is per person.
After you have purchased this workshop, we will send you an email with all of the information you need to attend the event. The email will include a discount code that you will need in order to register with the Lantern Fest.
Pictureline and the Lantern Fest have teamed up to give away an amazing gift at the end of the workshop to one lucky winner! More details on the prize and entry rules will be announced to all who register for this workshop.
