Landscape Photography Workshop

 

Capturing stunning landscapes is something we all aspire to do, but often the results don’t live up to the expectation.

Am I right?

This is because difference between generic photography and a stunning landscape photograph is implementation of :

a) some creative ideas,

b) a deeper understanding of your equipment and lenses, and finally

c) the ability to read the light.

With this in mind my landscape photography course aims to provide you with an excellent grasp of landscape photography fundamentals. As a result, it will give you the tools and confidence to create the landscape images you’ve always dreamed of.

LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS PART 1: SUNRISE LOCATION SHOOT

We start the day by meeting for a sunrise location shoot at the Gold Coast Seaway / The Spit for an epic hour or so of pre-dawn and sunrise magic!

Sunrise is at 5.17am. Afterwards we’ll grab a coffee and some breakfast and reconvene at my space for Parts 2 and 3.

 

LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS PART 2: LEARNING TO SEE BETTER IMAGES

  • The Rule Of Thirds
  • Leading Lines
  • Creating Foreground Interest
