During this full day workshop, we aim to give group presentations as well as one-on-one tuition for each participant. We will explain a variety of digital camera functions, teach you how to use these functions correctly and discuss different photographic techniques that will allow you to take better photos.
O’Reilly’s is home to some beautifully coloured birds, including Satin and Regent Bowerbirds, King Parrots, Eastern Yellow Robins and Crimson Rosellas, most of which are quite tame. In our first session you will learn how to achieve great bird photos.
After morning tea, we go for a short stroll and learn techniques on rainforest photography, including macro techniques, before heading to lunch.
The last session covers landscape photography (during our winter months, we photograph the sunset) overlooking the stunning valley below. It is a great way to finish a rewarding day - one that has been full of learning new photographic techniques, lots of hands-on practice, in the company of like-minded people and in a beautiful natural setting.
Things you will need:
- Camera gear
- Any lenses ranging from 15mm to 300mm (don't worry if you don't have all the lenses - you will still learn a lot with your digital SLR and kit lens)
- Memory card(s),
