2018 : Previous Weekend Workshops

  • Ice On Fire. Creative and Experimental. Stage 1
    • An interesting night of learning. We used a glass table top and the ice columns began to melt almost as soon it was placed on the glass. So temperature difference, however slight, will be a significant factor in delicate ice photography. Also, apparently, low temperature lights can ‘move’ ice like wind in a sail. Quite bizarre! A good social night with some good shots. And no eye-brows were lost in the making of the images…
  • Christmas in July Family Photo Shoot
    • Trying not to be too harsh considering the disappointing turn out.  Not sure why people do not want quality photos of their family or to practice camera craft with familiar people in a quality studio setting.  We will continue to push on though…
  • Mornington Gallery Crawl – What the Sea Never Told MPRG
    • An interesting tour of galleries, rose gardens, monuments and the waterfront.  The MPRG installation was an incredibly emotional experience that really put you in the place of someone that was being washed around in the ocean and drowning.
  • Botanical Gardens Cranbourne – for each of the 6 Indigenous Seasons (Download details)
    • Great venue. Great group of people.  Great images of flowers. Lunch in the café.
  • .Australia Day Fireworks – Mornington (Download details)
    • Done. Great time had even though it rained. Looking forward to next year.
  • Valentine’s Day Workshop (Download details)
    • Done.  Seems Story Telling is becoming more important in a lot more photo competitions.  Keep practicing…
