Kentucky Horse Racing and Bourbon Trail
Mid to late April, the bluegrass state is ushering in spring with trees and flowers blooming. This is the perfect time to visit Kentucky’s Iconic destinations. Join Canon Explorer of Light Adam Jones in this workshop that centers around thoroughbred horse racing at world famous Keeneland race track in Lexington, KY.
Where We’re Going:
A well-known horse farm adjacent to Keeneland is a perfect morning shoot before racing begins for the day. Along the rail of the track, we photograph majestic horses thundering past at close range. In addition to the action, the grounds and accessible behind the scenes areas are beautiful and provide plenty of slower paced opportunities. This is a full day event, breaking in the afternoon for reviews and critiques.
We will also photograph Shaker Village, a restored Shaker community with great architecture and scenic grounds for an early shoot. Here we can photograph people in period costumes, classic simple Shaker architecture and more. The village consists of 3000 acres of rolling hills, white fences, horses, doorways, barns, and architectural details and hand made furniture. We learn how to envision and capture creative travel, architecture, and landscapes in a variety of natural and man-made settings. Also instructing how to use flash indoors and out for natural-looking results.
The two final shooting locations we will photograph are the historic Woodford Reserve and the Buffalo Trace distilleries on the Bourbon Trail. The grounds and buildings offer a wide variety of filming and learning opportunities. Learn more.
