I had organized a weekend for about twenty members of the Southern Suburbs Photographic Society along with members of Knox and Frankston clubs to get together for some social activity and some good photographic opportunities. We had an amazing weekend photographing around the South Gippsland hills, with one full day down in the Wilsons Prom National Park. We all got some very interesting photo’s of Tidal river reflections in misty conditions and many of the members were able to get some lovely light shots around the Farm districts in the nearby hills. Another great weekend for all those who attended.
Another wonderful workshop has just been completed on King Island with eight lovely participants. We had the most amazing blue skies and warm weather. Low contrast due to the Autumn light and being 40 degrees south helped tremendously too. Had some great photographic opportunities at British Admiral’s Beach, Quarantine Bay, Yellow rock beach, Seal Rocks state reserve, The Gulchway, Penny’s Lagoon, Cape Wickham, the Calcified Forest and Broken Arm Beach. One morning out on an early shoot, the light was beautiful and we all managed some great images at Grassy, well positioned to grab the early light as it swept across the old Scheelite mine and the harbour. Everyone ate well of course (they always do as King Island food is so delicious) and the three days went so quickly, it was a little sad to fly out leaving behind such a beautiful place!
The July workshop is fully booked….. But a Spring flower Workshop Special for November is open to bookings, and dates for this workshop will be on the King Island page on this blog very soon!
Four days of Photographic Bliss has just been completed! Below is a small selection of images that I managed to take during a workshop conducted on the Island. We were extremely fortunate in that the weather was very favourable for good outdoor photography. The nine participants who came on the workshop were impressed by the coastlines, old buildings and machinery and wonderful land and seascapes that we could drive to and discover. Thanks again to our wonderful hosts Ken and Carolyn at Vista’s on Trousers Point for their wonderful food and hospitality……………… For anyone interested in booking this amazing photographic workshop I shall be conducting this very popular one again next year. The dates are March 21st to March 24th 2013. “Great photography is assured” (check the page for flinders Island on this blog)
