Photography Night Classes

In addition to my NZIBS course, I have also enjoyed a smaller night class on photography. This course included 3 separate field trips to shoot Landscapes, Portraits and Night Shoots:

Field trip out to Pauatahanui & Battle Hill Farm to shoot landscape…
We had a lovely morning firstly wandering around the Pauatahanui settlement shooting a few photos here before driving on up the Paekakariki Hill Road to “Battle Hill Farm” where we were able to continue wandering and shooting more photos. Battle Hill Farm is a working farm but open to the public to enjoy. It has so many photo opportunities out there from landscapes to farm animals to plants and trees and streams.

Field trip to Botanical Gardens to shoot Portraits…
Learning how to use reflectors and lighting. We used each other as models. I was shooting this lovely German lady on my course. Another lady took these shots of me.

A night shoot around Oriental Parade & Courtenay Place on a Saturday night…
It wasn’t the best night to be out and about trying to shoot as the weather did a typical Wellington turn around on us and the winds got up and it decided to start drizzling. We all came armed with tripods but it still proved difficult trying to get those night lights focussed. I’d like to get out again on another night shoot to practice what we learnt. It was a fun & interesting night all the same.
