About this course
A history and photography lesson in one, this day is spent on site at Goulburn's historic Old Brewery and Waterworks. The aim is to learn how to create two distinct photo stories that encapsulate these unique locations. The technical emphasis of the day is on composition, light control and techniques for dealing with low light and complex mechanical subjects. Be prepared to get a little grubby! You’ll be on your knees, lying on the ground and in a few tight spots getting the shots you want.
