    Free photography workshops - I'm excited!

    Like ol' big Kev, I'm excited!

    Have a few more of these: !!!!!!!!

    Ipswich City Council, to celebrate their 10 year anniversary of their Enviroplan Photography Competition, are having some free photography workshops which I've been confirmed as attending.

    They are on naturescapes, monochrome techniques and also water in all its moods.

    I'm quite excited as I'm keen to learn and there's a photographer taking one of the courses who features in some photography magazines and also writes for them. [Not sure if I can mention his name...]

    Well your next post will be your 50th. Think that's the break though point for naming people (positive or negative).
    hope you learn and enjoy.

    Lucky number 50!

    Thanks guys. I can't wait. First one is this Saturday but the one I'm looking forward to the most is on Monday. I'm hoping to enter the comp!

    One of the hidden gems I discovered recently was the subject of a winner last year so I'm bummed I can't use it.

    Hey Pobbs, I registered for the Monday workshop but haven't received a reply either way. When and how did you receive yours?
    Cheers,

    I'll see you there then! That's the workshop with Michael Snedic. He writes and photographs for that Australian Photography magazine. [I think that's what it's called].

    I got an email. Did you want me to PM you the email address of the lady who emailed me so she can check it for you?

    Woohoo, I'm in. Got the email this morning. I am a bit surprised that they want us to bring our longest focal length lens though. Seeing as we are shooting waterscapes, you'd think a wide would be more suitable. I don't think I'll bring my 500mm Siggy though. Mite be a tad long, not to mention heavy! I think my 70-200 will suffice, but I might just throw my 11-16 in just in case.

    Be great to meet a few local togs and learn from a pro. Anyone else on here going or is it just Pobbs and I?

    I'll be the one with the baby on my back, Ian. LOL Hopefully that wont be a problem for them.

    I will be bringing all my lenses, since I only have three. I don't have a monopod either, I've only got a tripod.

    Good luck with it, Pobbs. I hope it provides all you hope for. (Please excuse sentence-ending preposition)

    I've got a cheap monopod you could borrow? It doesn't have a ball head, but the head is adjustable. I'll bring it anyways, and you can decide if you want to use it.

    Had a great time at the workshop today, and my little 5.5 month old was so good in the Ergo on my back - thank goodness! I was worried for a bit he'd start scaring off the birds and annoy other people. But everyone was very understanding so that was a relief.

    Nice to meet you Epoc!

    Did you get any good bird pictures, Epoc? I didn't get a great deal, and none really 'up close'.

    Same here. Nothing to write home about. I have to admit, I wasn't expecting half of it to be a birding workshop. If I had known, I would have brought my 500mm lens. The description of it being waterscapes was a bit misleading, but I do know why they wanted long focal length lenses now.

    Yes! It was totally not what I expected, and half of me thought, why aren't they asking us to get up at the crack of dawn. Water In All It's Moods it was not!

    Still, for the price, can't go wrong!
