    Awesome. The tutor, Stephanie, had undertaken significant research to work out the best vantage points for landscape photography. We covered, and practiced, a range of camera settings to get the best shots. I learnt lots and would certainly undertake more workshops.

    Title or Location: Point Halswell Lighthouse
    This is a photo of Point Halswell Lighthouse in Wellington against the backdrop of the sea and rocks, capturing light and shadow. The shot was taken with a wide 10mm focal length that highlights the foreground leading to the lighthouse. A 6 second exposure smooths the sea.

    Title or Location: Point Halswell Lighthouse
    The sea was reasonably turbulent and I really saw an opportunity to capture that in the image by increasing the ISO so that I could capture the swerling action of the waves as it broke over the causeway to the lighthouse. Nature kept it's side of the bargain, leaving me to do the rest.

    Title or Location: Point Halswell Lighthouse
    I find Point Halswell a great place for photos. Normally, I would be taking photos of and around the lighthouse, but when I looked across as the city I was taken by the light over the city and the clouds overhead. This was a photo that needed to be quickly taken as a pano.

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.

    This little guy waited for me to focus, refocus and take a few steps closer and posed like a pro, moving his head from side to side so I could capture his best side. He was quite happy to cooperate for a minute or two!Shot with a Nikon Z50
