Trekabout Photography’s “City Lights Experience” workshop is designed to show participants the best way to photograph our beautiful city at dusk and after sunset.

Our workshop commences at the southern end of the Kurilpa Bridge (near the GOMA building) where Mark will show you how to best photograph the city buildings across the river, as the sun starts setting. The ‘mood’ and ‘feel’ of your photos will change as the sun sets and the colourful lights appear.

As darkness descends the Kurilpa Bridge which will start to light up with a multitude of coloured lights. The amazing shape and architecture of this bridge, as well as the gorgeous lighting, makes this a wonderful subject for photography. There are so many different angles to photograph the Kurilpa Bridge and you will be shown how to take advantage of the various ways to compose your shots.

There is also a great opportunity to photograph the William Jolly Bridge, with its wonderful ‘snake’ shape that is also lit up at night.

We finish the night with photographs of the Conrad Treasury and nearby buildings across the Brisbane River. The Conrad Treasury is lit up a brilliant purple colour and makes for some great shots.
