Seascape Sunrise and Waterfalls Workshop
Seascape Sunrise and Waterfalls - Full Day Workshop:
Our Seascape, Sunrise, and Waterfalls Workshop is a full day, practical workshop which will provide you with the confidence and knowledge that you need to take stunning landscape images of seascapes at sunrise and majestic waterfalls and rainforests, regardless of the type of camera that you own.
Here’s what you receive:
- A full day of training from our award-winning, professional photographers (we start before dawn and finish up after lunch)
- Guaranteed small groups (no more than 4 students per instructor)
- Return transport from Brisbane to all shooting locations throughout the day (you're free to bring your own car if you prefer)
- Refreshments throughout the day such as muesli bars and fresh fruit. We also provide plenty of water and sunscreen
- Free access to our exclusive on-line assistance and development forum
You’re probably gaining confidence using your camera now; maybe you’ve ventured onto manual mode once or twice, or perhaps you’re giving more thought to your compositions instead of just “happy-snapping”. This workshop will build on and reinforce these skills, as well as providing you the tools and resources to successfully plan your own shoot. We’ll get you excited about landscape photography and teach you the techniques used by working professionals and award-winning photographers to capture that perfect moment. We’ll also discuss and demonstrate post processing and software techniques to really give your images that professional finish!
We’ll help you to get the most out of your camera and equipment, including:
- The benefits of shooting RAW and in manual-mode.
- Using aperture, shutter speeds, and ISO settings effectively.
- How to get the most out of live-view.
- Understanding what white-balance is and how to adjust it.
- Understanding the histogram and how to determine the correct exposure.
- How to use filters such as graduated neutral density (GNDs) and circular polarisers (CPLs) to improve your photographs.
- Compositional foundations, compositional rules and why and when to break them.
- “Seeing” the landscape how to look for something special.
- Planning for your own seascape shoot – what to consider.
- Safety and sensible equipment.
Meeting in Brisbane well before sun rise, we set off on a drive to one of our favourite seascape locations. We will spend a couple of hours on a rock-shelf next to the ocean exploring all there is to learn about how to capture epic seascape sunrise pictures. You'll get near one-on-one access to award-winning landscape photographers while shooting this breathtaking environment.
We'll stop for breakfast at a local cafe where you can purchase a bite to eat and a good coffee. While there, we'll discuss post processing techniques to give your images that stand-out professional finish.
After breakfast we head to a lush green inland forrest, complete with a gorgeous waterfall and some lovely cascades for you to shoot. We'll be there to help you out along the way; discussing techniques, tools, and settings to make your waterfall and rainforest images stand out from the pack.
Following the waterfall session, we break for lunch at a local cafe. Over a good meal we'll debrief and discuss your images from the day. We'll help you to choose your best images for further editing and post processing and teach you further processing techniques.
Afterwards, we'll drive you back to Brisbane.
What to bring
You don't need a lot of fancy equipment to have a great day out of photography with Go photo. He's a few things that we suggest you bring:
- Besides your DSLR camera, you'll need a tripod - this is very important for landscape photography.
- Any filters that you may own, such as Graduated Neutral Density or Polarising filters
- A remote shutter release, if you own one
- A small torch - a head-torch is perfect
- An old pair of shoes that you don't mind getting sandy and wet - something like a pair of Dunlop Volleys or surf shoes is perfect
- A second pair of sturdy shoes or boots for walking
- A light rain or spray jacket
