About the event:

One of the Canon Collectives best photographic experiences is to shoot aerials from a helicopter with the doors off. As a part of the Queensland Regional Festival, we have partnered with Captain Mike Jarvis from Pteradactyl Helicopters and Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers to photograph the beautiful Darling Downs from a perspective that you haven't seen before!

In this workshop, a Canon Collective Ambassador will take you through the theory of Aerial Photography before you set out on a 20 minute flight with the EOS R and the superb RF 24-105mm f/4 L lens - just bring your own SD card (16GB, 80mb/s minimum). There will only be two passengers per flight to ensure left side seating, meaning you will not miss a moment of shooting time.

Once back on the ground, your Canon Collective Ambassador will be able to help you with some editing hints and tips to maximise the experience. Book your ticket now to avoid disappointment!

Please note that there might be a weight limit of 125 kg per person including camera and lens, due to operational values of the aircraft.

Techniques Covered include:

• Best Aerial Photography Technique
• Camera Settings
• Composition
• Lens Choice
• Focal Length
• Exposure Compensation
• Resolution
