Have you just bought a new camera? Are you planning a big trip? Or would you just like to know how to get the best out of your digital camera and take better photos? Melbourne Photography Tours can help you produce professional, creative images for your photo album, wall or digital display with their 3 hour hands-on, instructional tours. And you might learn something about Melbourne in the process.
Day or night tours through Melbourne's CBD, the colourful Federation Square and surrounding areas under the guidance of a professional are available. Day tours, operating on Saturdays from 8.30am to 11.30am take advantage of morning light. Night tours will have you capturing beautiful sunsets and vibrant city nightscapes. They run on the first Saturday of each month with a meet-up time around dusk. Because this varies with the seasons and daylight saving your professional will be in touch with you about exact times. The meeting place for both tours is Federation Square.
You will learn the principles of composition and design, how to spot a good shot, and pay attention to the light and detail, utilising all the features of your digital camera. All you need to bring is your digital camera and tripod, batteries, image cards, and clothing, shoes and accessories appropriate for the weather. You also have the option of hiring a camera and tripod. Small class sizes (maximum of 10) ensure you receive some one on one attention.
