Please note: This workshop is not held at the Centre for Creative Photography Marleston campus.

Spend an afternoon/evening photographing along the coastline of Petrel Cove behind The Bluff at Victor Harbor. We will meet at Victor Harbor half an hour before start time, where we will begin to investigate and extend your vision of the seascape.
A map with specific directions will be posted to you upon receipt of your workshop enrolment.

We will look at how to accentuate the unique formations of this coastline under different lighting conditions and through the use of long exposures as the light recedes. You will also look at how to find the South Celestial Pole at night, correctly expose for and create different effects of star trail photography. After dinner we will head over to Petrel Cove to put into practice these techniques we have discussed.

Prerequisites: 

A fundamental understanding of photography plus a love of the seascape is a must. Be prepared for potentially hot conditions where we will be in the sun for at least 3 hours. Please bring a hat, long sleeve shirt and plenty of sun-screen.

Required Materials:

Please bring your own dinner, or else shops will be available in Victor Harbor. Take plenty of drink to Petrel Cove as there are no shops convenient. Adequate sun protection is a must. Either a film or digital SLR camera will be required. A tripod with a cable release is a must. Bring plenty of film or memory cards. A roll of slide film would be preferable for the star trails (PROVIA 100F). Digital users will need to bring lots of spare batteries for the star trails due to the length of exposure time required.
