South Florida Summer Skies & Lightning
Group Leader – Robert Chaplin
July 26-30, 2017
Summer time in South Florida is the best time to photograph dramatic skies. We will photograph sunrises, sunsets, landscapes, seascapes, and lightning when available. We will walk into the swamp to photograph the flora that you will not see from the road. A Lightning Bug sensor by MK Controls will be given to all participants. These are devices that connect to your camera and fire the shutter when they sense lightning occurring.
This workshop is scheduled during the Delta Aquarids meteor shower and some night photography will be include.
South Florida is rich in other photo targets. Here are some ideas of other subjects we will pursue: Landscapes, Alligators, Sunrises, Sunsets, Birds, Florida Tree Snail (Endangered Species), Upper Keys shore lines and seascapes, Water Spouts (if associated with storms), & Rainbows
Other Notes: This workshop is five full days so we can take advantage of South Florida’s summertime storm patterns. While every attempt will be made to place the client in the best location for lightning, we are still at the mercy of Mother Nature. Lightning can be very dangerous. We will all be together in one vehicle and operate safely outside the edge of the storms, and not in the middle of the storms.
