Phillip Island Photography Workshop
15th – 18th Feb 2018
Join Kieran Stone and Tassiegrammer for a 4 day / 3 night all expenses included photography workshop and adventure on Phillip Island in Victoria, Australia.
Learn how to maximise your photography skills through improved shooting techniques, post processing in both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, the effective use of neutral density filters, astro photography (weather permitting), sunrise and sunset shooting, preparing your images for the most popular social media platforms and effective techniques for maximising your social media account exposure.
The workshop will be tailored to suit each individuals needs with subjects and techniques ranging from the most basic of camera settings and compositional rules, all the way through to advanced post processing techniques for those that are more comfortable with the the most popular editing suites.
