As a novice photographer, I am grateful for the one-on-one guidance, which started right from the basics. From finding a subject and working out composition, how to set up a tripod, and which lens and camera settings to use. Being able to get help throughout the workshop both in the field and while travelling/processing meant that I kept learning and consolidating throughout the trip. I am also thankful for being able to borrow a tripod, an umbrella and a macro lens to try out so I could get more out of the experience.
I have taken photos for as long as I can remember! I have a Diploma of Photography but really hardly any formal training. In 2015 (May), I attended the Bay of Fires 5 Day photography workshop. As we approached the Lodge a pod of dolphins surfed, we photographed ‘cotton wool’ water that night as well as an AURORA and milky way at 7.30 pm. I saw sunrises that would bring a tear to your eye, rivers more beautiful than I have ever seen before. I saw the moon rise as the sun did. This beauty combined with the expertise of of Rob and Loic and no other commitments provided the PERFECT combination to grow, learn and improve no matter what your level. Rob and Loic were fun, informative and helpful and I can’t wait to do another workshop with them.
