About the workshop
Come join Glenn Martin as he shows you his tips and techniques for night time photography during the spectacular Enlighten Festival in Canberra.
We will visit the six major installations around the festival giving you plenty of time to learn about your DSLR for night time shooting. Starting at Questacon for camera setup and briefing, we’ll work through to the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery, Old Parliament House, Parliament House and finally the National Library of Australia. Where possible we’ll also take opportunity to shoot some of the performance exhibitions that will be occurring in the area.
After the workshop you will still have an hour before the festival closes at midnight to get back to any spots you wish to explore further.
Advanced beginner to intermediate
This workshop is genre specific being night time long exposure. It is therefore aimed at those slightly more familiar with their cameras looking to hone their skills a little further with night time photography. If you have not yet learnt how to use your camera out of Auto mode then my Beginner’s DSLR Workshop might be better suited for you.
