Blue Mountains 1 Day Creative Photography Class
Take a break from the city and get creative with your photography in the delightful Blue Mountains.
Whatever the weather the mountains offer great oppurtunities to improve your photography. Thick mists create dramatic effects, a downpour puts energy into the cascades and falls. We will supply 'camera ponchos' if they are required.
The class will of course cover landscapes with tips and techniques that capture the grandeur of the location. We supply FREE loan tripods if you need one(please let us know in the comment section of the booking form.
We will look at 'macro' and low-light photography too, particularly useful under the canopy of the rainforest. If it's very rainy we will do some fun indoor photography with a single flash and improvised reflector.
The Art Deco buildings in Katoomba and Leura are great for improving your architechural photography.
Small group size for lots of 1on1 instruction.
Level: Did a class before/ Already know basics
Duration: 1 Day (7 hours approx.)
Cost: $245 (includes Entry Fees, Refreshments, 'Explorer' Bus Pass)
This is a brand new workshop for 2015 so obviously there are no reviews of this workshop yet. The following comments are here to give a feel of how we work.
Fantastic, logical, well presented and put across; very knowledgeable and professional; highly recommended. Thanks very much Andy - really enjoyed the course and got a lot out of it.
Andy, at last someone has authoritatively taught us about our cameras and their uses in a way that we completely understand and feel confident with. No more point and shoot for us...there is technique that really isn't beyond us if we practice. We greatly appreciated and thank you for your presentation style, patience and passion.

The course is not weather dependent, the content will be adjusted to suit the conditions. What starts out as thick mountain mist (great for mood) can become a hot sunny day. A rainy afternoon might be spent looking at images and improving technique.
Please make sure you bring clothing for a range of weather conditions have something warm in your bag because it can get quite cool especially in the evening even in summer. Have a poncho or similar wet weather gear. We will supply rain covers for your DSLR if they are needed. Make sure you have sunblock and a hat as it can get quite fierce in the clear mountain air. Bring a refillable water bottle. We will get around on the Blue Mountains Explorer bus but there will be a little walking (nothing strenuous) so make sure you have solid non-slip shoes. No thongs please! : )
What to Bring:
Camera either a DSLR or Interchangeable-lens 'Mirrorless' or a High End Compact. Please include the model number in the form so that we can make sure it's suitable. We have FREE loan DSLRs -just let us know.
