Discover your passion for seascape photography with Dylan and Peter

About the event

Join Peter from Peter Fogarty Photography and Melbourne Photography Excursions, and Sony Digital Imaging Advocate, Dylan Giannakopoulos at their Magiclands Seascape Photography Workshop held at Cape Woolamai on Saturday 31st August 2024. Aptly named Magiclands, explore a myriad of focal points that shift with the tide, offering an ideal environment to nurture your artistic vision. 

At the workshop you’ll learn how to:

  • Use compositional techniques in your seascape photography to create captivating imagery.
  • Understand quality of light and how it influences the best times of the day to shoot.  
  • Learn about the three elements that make up the exposure triangle (ISO, aperture and shutter speed) and how to balance them to achieve the correct exposure. 
  • Master control of various camera modes and settings such as aperture priority and manual focusing, and learn how to read their camera’s histogram.

After the workshop, participants will be invited to join a private Facebook group which 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.
