About the event

This is a truly beautiful area which I find myself at a lot, It has some amazing walks and little flowing streams along with some hidden waterfalls and some truely epic compositions to find. This is a loop walk and around 4 km in total of walking but has so many epic spots for photo opportunities. The workshop is of a smaller number so I can help/mentor you with low light and long exposures to get that dreamy effect with plays on light and shadows breaking through the trees. I can't wait to show you this place as I think anyone who hasn't visited this area will truely fall in love with it as have I.

Techniques covered

  • Long exposures 
  • Shooting in manual mode
  • Understanding highlights and shadows
  • Understanding ISO
  • Compositions (landscape and portrait)
  • Understanding aperture in low light

What to bring

  • Snacks and water
  • Tripod
  • Camera and lens
  • Filters( if you don't have any don't stress as we can still discuss methods and techniques)

Event FAQs (For general FAQs, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page)

If you don't have gear please touch base and I will doo my best to arrange something for you.
