Sunrise At Manly

What an absolutely sensational Sunday morning at Manly beach, cameras charged and at the ready. The morning started with a meet and greet of the group, and Scott, individually going step by step through required camera settings to ensure we were comfortable with his instructions throughout the 3hr session. After walking to our sunrise spot and setting up, Scott provided the camera settings we input into our cameras, with him walking to each one of us, asking if we were OK. After numerous shots and adjusting aperture and ISO to accommodate the changes in light, we focused on a rock shelf in which long exposures capturing crashing waves, was key. All this time, Scott’s watchful eye was peaking at shots taken and continually offering advise, changes and appreciating captures. We then headed to the beach and took shots of the pipe works running into the ocean, which was quite funny watching us all getting the shot without being drowned by the surf. Then we headed to “Bold and the Beautiful” swimmers where we were again tasked with shots under the watchful guidance of Scott, capturing skin tone, reflections, movement and just enjoying the moment. This was followed by a visit to a coffee shop to again listen to his wealth of knowledge and take notes on the key areas of photography…..Aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed. This 2.5hrs with Scott was the best photography course we have done and found it extremely rewarding, informative, a lot of laughs and the time flew by. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Scott or any of his courses if you want to start or increase your knowledge of photography. We enjoyed it that much, we have already booked another course with Scott.
