Landscape

 

 

This one-day workshop will help you realise the creative potential of your camera when capturing images in some of the most magical landscape locations.

 

As a landscape photographer, telling a story and creating a mood leads the viewer into your pictures. If you enjoy being in nature and do not mind the weather – getting cold, wet or muddy, then landscape photography is for you!

 

Participate in an afternoon shoot in one of Perth’s scenic spots to help you build your confidence, perception and your mixed lighting skills. Learn how to create your own spectacular landscape images for your practice, social media or your living room wall.

 

You will learn the most crucial elements and equipment needed in your kit for professional landscape photography as well as the importance of composition.

 

You will also develop your eye at perceiving light at different times of the day which will enable you to discern the best camera settings and filters that will make enhancing your pictures a breeze.

 

Landscape is a 1-day workshop held on a weekend.
