How will the weather be and what clothes and general equipment to bring?
Even though we live in the tropical part of Australia, the Tablelands can be quite chilly in winter at night. The days are really quite pleasant and we may be walking through some of the rainforest and creeks.
Bring comfortable walking shoes.
Please bring rain gear like a lightweight jacket or poncho. Just in case the weather turns bad.
It’s actually a good idea to bring a small collapsible lightweight umbrella to be able to keep shooting even if it drizzles or rains. Keep this tucked in your camera backpack at all times.
Bring a water bottle or better yet a flask or thermos for coffee or tea to bring with you.
Hat and sunscreen.
What will we do?
We will start with a show-and-tell of equipment.
How to set up lighting equipment for a balanced and creative macro shoot.
What lenses are used for what result. Extension rings, close up lenses, simple and advanced set-ups.
What is it all about depth of field? What about focus stacking?
There are plenty of butterflies in the sanctuary to play with.
We keep our Photo Workshops small with a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 6 participants. This will ensure in-depth learning experience and plenty of one-on-one tutoring.
