Use Queensland’s stunning rainforest as a limitless canvas to practice and improve your photographic skills.
Statement of Participation
This one-day photography workshop aims to provide intermediate level photographers with an opportunity to apply and strengthen their skills in the field of nature photography.
Pierre, your enthusiastic local instructor, will take you on a 6-hour journey through our breath-taking world heritage rainforest. Following the trails of Springbrook National Park, he will guide you to stunning locations such as lookouts and waterfalls with great photo opportunities. A reasonable level of fitness is therefore required. The time spent walking is approximately 2½ hours, which will allow 3½ hours for photo taking.
At each location, Pierre will demonstrate the workflow he applies for various photography subjects. He will then provide you with technical assistance to improve your photographs. The focus will be on composition, exposure, and sharpness and how the creative control of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO will help you produce stunning photographs.
The use of a tripod and flash is highly recommended. A tripod will enable you to slow down your shutter speed to capture smooth-looking waterfall pictures.
Please note that this course is weather dependent.
