Man, this one is exciting and will help those of you with the least inexpensive equipment on the planet how you can make Fusion like a rock star! Friend of planet5D, Vu Bui has just announced his “Hawaii Fusion Event | Shooting Professional Photos and Videos on an Entry Level Budget” – he and Tracie Cotta will be going to Hawaii for a week and will be creating PhotoFusion training with a Canon Rebel T1i! Not $5000 of equipment, they're using the tiny budget camera showing you how it can be done without the incredibly expensive equipment. And, all of the training and information from the tour is presented to you free! Smugmug is sponsoring Vu and Tracie's trip so you benefit.
Ok, here's the site with the announcement and all of the information about the project, but we thought we'd give you a taste of what Vu and Tracie are up to:
“I teamed up with SmugMug and decided to create a project to show everyone JUST how easy it is to create beautiful workâ€¦ with some of the most affordable gear available. Iâ€™m going on a one week destination photo fusion trip to Oâ€™ahu, Hawaiiâ€¦ bringing a camera and lens combo thatâ€™s less than $1,000 and a set of accessories and gear that is also just around $1,000 (in addition to some home-made DIY items!). The point will be to not only show what is possible with this entry-level gear, but to detail how I do all of the shoots that Iâ€™ll be doing during the week.
Iâ€™ll be announcing the gear list in a coming blog post, but weâ€™ll basically be doing a variety of photography and video shooting using a consumer DSLR, natural light, wirelessly triggered small flashes, affordable underwater equipment and a few accessories.”
