Announcing: Special Landscape Photography Weekend Workshop with NiSi Filters

Workshop date: 30 September – 1 October 2017, Starting from 12pm

Workshop Location: Mona Vale Memorial Hall, Mona Vale NSW

Workshop Fee: $350 per person

Some very exciting news! NiSi Filters has decided to join us on the upcoming full weekend photography workshop! You will have unlimited access to NiSi filters during the on-location shoots and there will also be a special NiSi filter presentation as part of my theory to help you understand the power of using filters in your landscape images!
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to try out these amazing filters and improve your photography under the experienced tuition of an internationally award-winning landscape photographer!

If you are new to photography, and simply don’t know where to start your photography adventure, this workshop is for you.

If you are more intermediate, but want to take your photography to the next level, this workshop is for you.

If you are a professional looking to further your existing knowledge about composition and shoot alongside an award-winning photographer – you guessed it – this workshop is for you too!

This is a weekend jam packed with great photography theory covering the absolute basics, all the way to advanced topics, then on to compositional tricks, gear advice, application of filters, and much more.
To top it off I will also give you an overview of the post-processing workflow (in Lightroom and Photoshop) if there is enough time.

We then go on-location and apply what we have learned during a sunset session, shooting all the way until dark.
I will be right by your side, helping you with the technicals and compositional side of photography. A NiSi representative will also be there to help you with your filters!

The next day we go back to the same location shooting sunrise. You will notice how much your photography will have improved from the previous night and the aha moments are literally audible.

I will take you to a location which rarely other photographers venture to and which is my personal favourite of all Sydney Seascape locations! With a bit of luck we will get some incredible dawn colours and capture this special place in all its glory!

Here is how the workshop will run in detail: 
Session 1 (Saturday, 11am – 4pm):
• Basics of photography – interior of an SLR, components of exposure (aperture, ISO, shutter speed, focus,…), technical terms explained
• Histogram and exposing to the right – how to make use of it and how to improve your images with it
• Rules of composition
• Reading the light
• How to get more saturated photos with richer colours
• Bracketing (basics for HDR photography)
• Layer blending
• White Balance blending
• How to capture seascapes
• Shutter blending
• Creating panoramas
• Tips for researching (planning, scouting, shooting)
• Gear (recommended cameras, tripods, lenses, filters,…)
• Where to buy your gear (cheap and reliable shops)
• Pre-shooting checklist
• Overview of Lightroom and Photoshop Workflow

Session 2 (Saturday, 4.00pm – 7.00pm):
On-location shooting at one of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Composition is going to be a major subject at this dusk shoot. I will show you what to look out for and how to line up the shot. Everyone will have plenty of one-on-one time with me.

Session 3 (Sunday, 6.00am – 9.00am):
Second on-location shooting. You get a second chance to apply what you have learned the evening before at the dawn shoot.
Experience first-hand, how shooting landscapes at different times of day affect your photos. There will be plenty more time to ask questions and correct mistakes.

All materials including workshop workbook, tea and nibbles are provided!

BONUS: All workshop attendees will receive and exclusive discount on NiSi Filter sets! Please RSVP as soon as possible as this workshop will fill up quickly and places are strictly limited!

Please note: there is a charge of $350 per participant for this workshop!
It will likely be the best investment you will ever make into your photography!
