DANDENONG RANGES DAY TRIP
Includes Forest Composition Activity at Sherbrooke Falls and a Bonus Puffing Billy Photoshoot with the optional visit to Alfred Nicholas Gardens
Meet: 10am – 12 pm maximum – Sherbrooke Picnic Ground Car Park – Toilet facilities here and BBQ electric and gas.
Tutorial: Will be held on this track as a Walk through composition class.
This tutorial is for members who wish to learn to separate the chaos of a busy forest into smaller sets of detailed layers of the forest. It is not about the camera settings and techniques however due to the changing light within the forest there will be camera settings given to you to make the walk easier due to the changing light within the forest.
I am no expert in Forest photography but what I do know is what I would like to share.
