Take your photography to the next level and start experimenting with the magic of long exposure photography right here in Perth city!


There are many ways to photograph waterfalls....but learning how to transform an 'ordinary' photo into a one that comes alive with movement and impact is one of most exciting things about experimenting with long exposure photography. 


When you leave the shutter open for slightly longer periods of time, magical things start to happen...while the shutter is open the world keeps moving, and that movement is captured through your camera as varying degrees of blur. And one of the best subjects for learning how to capture movement with long exposure photography is waterfalls!

This beginner level workshop will take you through a step by step process of setting up a great waterfall photograph and all the things to consider in terms of composing the photograph and how to decide on what camera settings to use to achieve the effect you are after.

Learn to create different effects with moving water and how to adjust your settings to get the desired long exposure effect (milky, misty, keep texture in the water etc); how to create smooth water shots without needing expensive lenses or filters; composition tips and tricks for more dynamic waterfall shots; and useful field techniques so you can then get out and do this on your own!


These workshops are an opportunity for you to learn about photography and spend an afternoon shooting in a fun, hands-on and supportive environment with other like-minded, enthusiastic photographers! It is a great way to exchange ideas with other photographers, get into the great outdoors, learn some new photographic skills…and create a few killer shots!
