This will be a practical workshop with hands on landscape shooting at two locations.
The workshop will begin at the first location with a quick introduction regarding camera settings. To get the best light, images will be taken right away. The instructor will be available to assist and help fine tune settings as needed.
When this session raps up, the students will return to the gallery for breakfast and a discussion and review of the images. We will cover more material regarding exposure and composition.
After the review, the workshop will continue at a second location. This will allow participants to shoot incorporating what they’ve learned from the first shoot and image review.
There will be another image review and discussion before wrapping up the workshop.
Bring your camera and , if you think that you might have any questions about operating your camera, please bring the camera manual (pdf is fine). If you have a tripod, please bring it.
Cost: $110 includes an SD card to keep, breakfast and morning tea. Please advise Leslie of any dietary requirements.
This workshop will include some walking across sand to the locations.

If you missed out last time, here is another chance to join this fantastic workshop!
A one day workshop on traditional and modern etching techniques using zinc plates and copper sulphate.
Participants will learn how to prepare their plates, apply a hard ground, transfer their image, and then ink and print their image.
We will also explore chine-colle to add colour to the images. This is achieved using delicate paper, such as Japanese paper, placing it on the inked plate and running it through the press to bond the collé paper to the print.
By the end of the course everyone should have created a zinc plate with an image and have printed it intaglio ready for framing.
Cost: $100 includes lunch. Most materials will be provided. Full material list available on booking.
A deposit of $50 will secure your place in this workshop. The balance is to be paid by 11/8/2019.
Payments will be refunded for cancellations before the 18/8/2019. No refund of deposit will be made for cancellations after this date. Payment can be made directly to the gallery or contact Leslie Duffin (0419471660) for Direct Deposit details.
