This ‘Blue Mountains, Lithgow Blast Furnace & Mayfield Gardens Oberon photography tour’ has something for everyone ๐Ÿ™‚
We will meet at the Leura Cascades in the Blue Mountains where you will meet the tour group and photograph the beautiful waterfall. Here you will learn ‘slow movement’ photography and come away with some beautiful ‘milky’ water shots of the waterfall!!
Lunch will be at a cafe in Leura or Katoomba {included.}
Our next stop is the Blast Furnace at Lithgow – this fabulous historical building is magic to photograph. Here you will learn landscape and composition techniques.
Chris is known for stopping ANYWHERE if she ‘sees a photo.’ We may pull over at any time to take advantage of a great photographic opportunity ๐Ÿ™‚
We will arrive at our accomodation Duckmaloi Parkย {make sure you click on the link and check it out} with plenty of time to photograph the property in the late afternoon light.
This historic property is tucked away in the Duckmaloi Valley on 140 acres of soft rolling hills and natural bush with private access to the Duckmaloi River. The house is set on 2 acres of natural gardens with a dam and lots of bushwalking tracks. After settling in we will head out with the cameras to photograph the property or perhaps spot some wildlife!
Dinner will be in town at the pub {included.}
After dinner we will go over ‘Image organisation and Lightroom tuition.’ Chris will give you lots of info on keeping your images organised and some super easy lightroom tips to give your images that wow factor.
After a good nights sleep, there will be an early morning sunrise shoot {for those that want to get up} PLUS a hearty breakfast will be cooked by your hosts Chris and Ray before we set offย  toย Mayfield Gardens.
These gardens are truly spectacular and will be rich in autumn colours. We will photograph the main gardens PLUS the private gardens {which are only open to the public during the Autumn and Spring festivals each year.} You will learn all about your macro lens and how to take great ‘gardenscapes.’
There are complimentary shuttle buses to transport us around the gardens and of course lunch is included in the tour price at the Garden Cafe.
We will photograph here till approx 3.30pm, then a quick debrief before we head for home.
You will be given personal, easy to understand photography tuition and information relevant to YOUR camera {yes, I study the workings of YOUR camera before the tour.}
Aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focus, composition, depth of field and many more aspects of photography will be explained to you โ€˜as we goโ€™. You will take photos using each new technique before moving onto the next level.
