Join Internationally acclaimed Landscape Photographer Mieke Boynton for a sunset shoot at the iconic Princes Pier in Port Melbourne and learn how to “see like a camera” in order to capture the jaw-dropping beauty of landscapes during the fast-changing light of sunset
Through a combination of theory and practice, this introductory course will teach you how to set up and customise your camera for landscape photography and will give you a solid understanding of the fundamental principles and practices for capturing beautiful landscape images.
An initial one-hour step-by-step session will provide you with a comprehensive theoretical understanding of your camera and how it interacts with the environment, which will then be followed by a hands-on sunset shoot at the Pier with Mieke where you will put your newfound knowledge into practice and capture the iconic pylons at sunset.
