About the event:

Shooting landscapes is one of the most popular and enjoyable photography experiences and capturing the movement of the sea has been a favourite subject since the beginning of time. However the common question we’re asked is “How do I take the next step to achieve that brilliant ocean shot?” Join the Canon Collective and record the natural seascape beauty at Newcastle Baths using a Haida ND Filter kit to enhance your photography. Comprising of a 6, 10 and 15 stop ND filter as well as a 3 stop ND Grad, this is your opportunity to capture stunning ocean seascapes like never before.

Run as a small group, this exclusive workshop will provide guests plenty of 1:1 time to fully understand how to photograph a range of long exposure landscape images using ND filters.

Topics of discussion:

• How to use ND filters
• How to calculate long exposure times
• How to read the scene and select shutter speeds for the best effect
• Improve your composition
• Learn how to capture long exposure panoramic images
• When you would use a polarising filter
