Saturday 14th December – Kick off 7:00pm – Mrs Maquarie’s Chair
This will be our last workshop of the year, and spots are limited so get in asap!
Learn how to nail your long exposure images, compose and capture flow, and learn how to use car trails to create leading lines and interest in your images!
We’ll start off at Mrs Maquarie’s Chair. One of the best places in Sydney to watch the sunset over the harbour. We’ll show you what settings to use and how to compose your image to make sure you nail sharp, detailed, and dramatic images. There are a number of compositions available around here, and we’re going to show you all of them.
Once the sun has set we’ll head up to our next location to show you how to capture car trails and how to use them to create an interesting lead- in to your image during the blue hour.
Summer sunsets in Sydney can be incredibly beautiful and diverse, from hazy to colourful, to stormy and dramatic. It’s one of the best times of year to capture the harbour, so make sure you book and capture some postcard images of one of the most beautiful harbours in the world!
During this three hour course you will learn how to:
– Capture flow and make it a key element of your image.
– Compose your image to draw the viewer in and create an impacting mood
– Use filters to add amazing movement effects to your image (we will have a limited number of filters on hand to demo)
– How to use your camera’s light meter and histogram, and how to balance shutter speed, ISO and Aperture during quickly changing lighting conditions
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING
You will need to have a camera with a manual mode and a tripod. If you have filters, bring them along, otherwise we’ll have a few available for demonstration. Weather can change quickly so bring shoes with good grip, and an umbrella.
While not required, a remote trigger is highly recommended for longer exposures and to eliminate camera shake.
