Learn how to capture light trails with filters from Haida!

About the event

Interested in learning how to capture dramatic light trails and get the most out of your neutral density ND filters? Whether you are wanting to try long exposure photography for the first time or get hands-on with Haida’s range of M10 and Red Diamond filters, this is the workshop for you!

Join award-winning photographer and Sony Digital Imaging Advocate, Dylan Giannakopoulos at his Cityscape Long Exposure Photography Workshop held at William Barak Bridge on Saturday 12th February.

Polarising and neutral density (ND) filters can open you up to a wide range of creative possibilities in your landscape and cityscape photography. Thanks to Haida Filters and Maxxum, you will be provided with a loaner M10 filter kit and get access to a variety of M10 and Red Diamond filters to use on the night. There will also be a special event-exclusive offer for guests.

At the workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Take creative control over your camera’s shutter speed with ND filters
  • Utilise graduated neutral density (GND) filters to balance the overall exposure of a scene
  • Calculate your shutter speed when using ND filters
  • Photograph car trails
  • Use long exposure techniques to add compositional elements and guide the viewer’s eye

Strictly limited to 6 attendees, the small group structure of the workshop ensures that Dylan can provide plenty of one-on-one tuition whilst ensuring social distancing. After the workshop, you will be invited to join a private Facebook group that is strictly limited to past attendees of Dylan Gianna Photography Workshops. The Facebook group offers members a space to share their images, ask questions and learn tips and tricks from Dylan.
