Popular with locals and tourists our Sydney photography workshop will show you that there is more to Sydney than the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Discover and capture ‘secret’ harbour parks and laneways of Sydney’s more bohemian inner city eastern suburbs including the historic architectural streets of Elizabeth Bay and Paddington - on this 4hr practical photography workshop. This area, once the domain of European influenced Colonial houses and apartments, has a rich and slightly ‘risque’ history including the back streets of Kings Cross featured in the TV series Underbelly's Golden Mile. It is still home to an eclectic mix of artists, actors, writers and musicians.
Beginner, intermediate, any level moving to digital from film. Compact camera, Micro four thirds, DSLR cameras are all fine!
small groups - max 8 persons
Next course dates:

For beginners or enthusiasts, these hands-on half-day photography workshops cover the basic and fundamental techniques of digital photography whilst capturing images of hidden architectural art deco features, Australian flora, old European style mansions, colourful Victorian terrace cottages, water reflections, and other quirky points of interest along the way. Using your own digital camera you’ll learn how to train your eye creatively to take interesting portraits, funky architectural images, cityscapes and landscapes, vibrant close-up (macro) shots. Progress from the auto button mode and make the most of your camera and its functions/buttons by understanding: camera handling, exposure control, depth of field, aperture and shutter speed, design & composition, lighting, colour, framing, leading lines, white balance, ISO settings.
During the morning we will stop for a coffee/drink at one of the café’s where you can ask your photographic and camera questions. The tour ends in Paddington - for those of you who are hungry there are a few old pubs for lunch in the area or there is the famous Paddington art and craft market (Saturday only) for the shoppers.
