Note:  This course is unlike my other course.  It does not follow on one Workshop after another.  If you miss a Workshop then you won’t miss an important element that affects the next Workshop.  You will still be able to makeup up to 2 missed workshops, in another Term.

The course starts off with the Introduction Night Class (#1) held at the Guide Hall, at Como, discussing the important elements associated with Light & Composition.   Introducing you to the diverse number of factors associated with Composition, and the realisation of how many things that can influence your images.  We then look at an overview of images taken at the first three Workshop locations, discussing the possibilities associated with simplicity, cropping, light and composition.

For the weekend Workshops, we will meet at Sutherland Station (for those located in the south), or others living elsewhere, can meet us when we arrive in the City.  At each Workshop, you will work with a buddy discussing opportunities both in Light & Composition.  You will rotate buddies during the Workshop.

The cost of the course is $350

At the start, you will a brief for the Workshop, a map, and compositional notes.

We start our City Workshops by first visiting the ‘Central Rocks’ area.

Our second Workshop will be a Twilight/Night Workshop at ‘China Town and Darling Harbour’, starting at QVB in the City, and finishing at central Railway.

The third Workshop is to Botanic Gardens.

The next time we meet is a Class Review Night, again at the Guide hall at Como looking at images taken at the first three Workshops.  You will be asked to hand in your images using ‘WeTransfer’, a week before the lesson, so that they can be added to the presentation.

The review night will look at and discuss the images taken (anonymously) looking at the way the light has been used and captured, and how compositional elements have been used in the images submitted.

At this stage of our photographic journey, we need constructive feedback to make us aware of what we get right, and what we need to work on.  Feedback from others in the course is encouraged.  We will also look at other images that have been taken at the same Workshops previously, to get a better overview of opportunities that existed.

From here we do our next two City workshops, again meeting at Sutherland Station on a Saturday or Sunday morning (weather permitting).

The fourth Workshop will again visit the Rocks for a Twilight/Night Workshop’ where we will be capturing the historic mystical light on the century past buildings and features.

The fifth and last Workshop is a Rocks Perimeter Workshop, going to different locations than before, with Sydney Harbour as the backdrop.

Images will be handed in again by ‘WeTransfer’, and we will have the second ‘Class Review Night’ reviewing the images from the final 2 workshops as before.

Well, that’s it … a way of motivating your photography into the future.

Our City is a magical place to create images – the parklands, the modern, and the historical Rocks prescient.

The cost of the 5 City Workshops and 4 Lesson ‘Understanding Light & Composition Course’ is $350

You can also come along and only do one-off Workshops (select from any of the five) and the cost is $60 (4 hour Workshop).
