    White Bay Powerstation, Rozelle - Photographic open day Sunday 22 May

    White Bay Powerstation is no longer in use. It will be a familiar site for anyone that has driven over Anzac Bridge.

    There is a photographic open day on Sunday 22 May from 10am to 4pm and tripods are permitted on this day. The site is normally closed to the public.

    If anyone is interested in going to the open day, put your details in this thread.
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Very interesting.

    I told Xenedette about this and she's quite keen.

    We'll probably attend both days.

    The location might be very good for HDR images. I can imagine that the place would be difficult to shoot in terms of exposure. Tripod and bracketing would be necessary for optimal results.

    I just called, and we're booked for the 12:30pm tour.

    The tours (of the turbine hall) run for 15 minutes.

    The rep on the phone told me there's been a huge response to this open day, so my advice is that you book NOW.

    Afternoon sessions are available, but it seems the morning sessions are mostly filled.

    You can bring cameras on the tour day (Saturday), but no tripods. Tripods are fine on the Sunday photography day.

    Good 'excuse' to stop delaying my inevitable tripod upgrade

    I can't go I am doing a course with Kajo that weekend. Sounds like such a good oportunity.

    Have a good time there guys, I can't go because I'm dropping Mary off at the airport at midday, she's off to Italy for a month.

    Oh I would love to go to that but there is no way to get to Sydney at the moment. Still, hopefully they will do it again, I'll watch the website. I googled it under Images and it would be fantastic at sunrise.
