This is a one day coastal and long exposure photography workshop at Murrays Bay on Auckland’s North Shore. On this workshop, you’ll learn how to shoot dramatic and awe-inspiring coastal landscapes and make long exposure photographs. This is designed as an intermediate-advanced workshop.
We will start by meeting at the café for a coffee (included), to have a quick look at some of the best settings for coastal and long exposure photography. Once everyone is up to speed and introduced we will hit the beach for the rest of the day, finishing with the chance to shoot the sunset.
Long exposure photography requires the use of ND filters (we have some to borrow if you don't have your own) so you can use longer shutter speeds to create beautiful effects with movement in water and clouds. Capturing images like this requires excellent technique and some knowledge. By joining this workshop you’ll be guided in the techniques needed as well as learning how to take some amazing coastal photographs.

    We believe that a small group size provides the best possible learning outcomes. Our 1-day workshop provides a tutor-student ratio of 1:4 or better. Maximum group size is limited to 8 with a group of 5 and more an assistant will be present to help out the group.

    This is designed as an intermediate/advanced level workshop for people that already have an understanding of basic setting and how to shoot in manual mode. If you are yet to master the basics please look at Photo School Part 1: Taking Control.
  • Equipment

    Camera: This workshop is designed for the use of DSLR, Mirrorless or Four-Thirds Camera Systems - your camera lens will also require a thread to fit filters. Please let us know if you do not have a suitable camera as have a number of Nikon DSLR cameras available.
    Filters: This workshop is designed to teach you the use of ND filters. We have enough Benro filters kits for everyone to borrow if you do not have you own ND filters. We have adapter rings to fit these to any camera lens with a thread size from 37-88mm. if you do not already have you own ND filters, we recommend using ours for the workshop and not rushing out to buy some, as too often people buy the wrong types. After the workshop, you will have a better understanding of which filter you may use.
