Great Ocean Road Photography Workshop
7th March – 10th March 2019
Join @tassiegrammer (Jason Futrill) and @lake_of_tranquility (Dietmar Kahles) for a 4 day / 3 night all expenses included photography workshop and adventure along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia from the 7th March – 10th March 2019.
Learn how to maximise your photography skills through improved shooting techniques, post processing in both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, the effective use of neutral density filters, astro photography (weather permitting), sunrise and sunset shooting, long exposure photography, waterfalls and the effective use of a variety of social media platforms.
The workshop will be tailored to suit each individuals needs with subjects and techniques ranging from the most basic of camera settings and compositional rules, all the way through to advanced post processing techniques for those that are more comfortable with the most popular editing suites.
A reasonable level of fitness will be required as access to some of the possible locations will require walking both before dawn, after dusk and later in the evening for astro sessions. You will need to be prepared for a variety of weather conditions as the seasonal conditions along the Great Ocean Road can vary quite quickly. There will be a maximum of 8 participants for this workshop.
