Discover how to understand the morning light and capture stunning images on your camera.

While this is a beginners course it is suited to photographers at all experience levels. It is aimed at controlling the early morning first light and being truly creative with it! As the sun rises you get fast changes in light, density and hue and we are rapidly changing settings to maintain optimum exposure and effect.

The course is split into three sections. The first using First Light and creating very long exposures over the water. Secondly a short lesson in shooting in manual mode over a coffee, and lastly shooting creative portraiture into the sea working with bodies, tones and shapes.

To be on the beach at sunrise is a magical time! Take advantage of the stunning scenario of Manly Beach, the morning light and take the most gorgeous photos in this complete short course.

Note: Start times are variable during the year, depending on sunrise times, but earlier in the summer months.
