Bring your creativity to life using ND filters, polarisers, graduated filters as well as an introduction into histograms and personalised composition mentoring. Capture the movement of the ocean in a still image and transform your photos into art.
GET TO KNOW FILTERS
Using supplied filters kits we cover all you need to know to achieve beautiful long exposure images and take control of your settings. NiSi square filter kits are provided for you on the day.
Composition is personal and our small group size gives me the opportunity to work with you to help you achieve your personal goals with your photos, not just recite 'composition rules'.
Get a grip on how to use your histogram to preserve your sky details to give you the best start point for your image processing.
Small groups = More Personalisation.
ALL BRANDS ALL MODELS
Do you want a personalised approach specific to your camera? You’ve found it. With years of experience and thousands of workshop participants you’d be hard pressed to find a camera brand or model that I don’t know my way around.
2. BASE SETINGS & SUNRISE
3. LONG EXPOSURES
4. LOCATION 2
You’ll need a camera with access to full manual settings for this workshop as Neutral Density filters require the use of manual mode. Please make sure you have a fully charged battery and space on your memory card.
I always recommend brining a range of lenses if you have them (both wide/telephoto) as they serve different purposes in landscape and seascape photography.
For this workshop it is also vital that if you are using a non-interchangeable lens camera that your camera’s lens has a screw thread on the front that accepts filters (call me if you’re not sure 0402812805.
You will need a tripod for this workshop. If you don’t have one I can arrange a loan tripod for you but you must contact me in advance.
A Remote shutter release is not critical for this workshop but if you have one, bring it along.
You will want to have sturdy walking shoes and some very warm layers as the cape can be windy and cold especially through winter. Sunglasses and a hat are also advisable.
If you are a snacker please be sure to bring some nibbles and a water bottle as we only have access to the cars between locations (several hours after we start).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
This workshop is a very small group so all skill levels can be catered to. That said, we are going to be working on some more advanced skills for this session so whilst you don’t need lots of experience to participate the workshop is design for those wanting to learn more advanced skills so if you’re just a casual photographer this might be more complex than you intend to take your photography.
Stormy skies make for amazing photography however if we have significant forecast rain in the lead up to our workshop you will be invited to book onto a different workshop date that suits your schedule via a voucher code as there is little shelter in the areas we are visiting. A judgement call will be made in the days prior to the workshop and a further assessment the day before. If you intend on staying on the peninsula the night before our workshop please check the cancellation/rescheduling policy with your accommodation.
The workshop its self includes laminated quick reference cards for the settings and composition ideas covered.
Your workshop is always a small group giving you plenty of one-on-one instruction as well as personal attention relevant to your camera brand and model.
Also, I believe that photography concepts take practice and time so at the conclusion of your workshop you will be invited to an exclusive online support group on Facebook where you can continue to grow your photography alongside other Matt Krumins Photography Workshop participants!
Lunch is not included, you are welcome to bring a packed lunch or purchase lunch from one of the shops where we stop.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
Thanks again Matt.
Lightroom is something that I have struggled with for a few years and just could not grasp the basics. They way Matt breaks it down and the friendly, informative way it was presented, all suddenly started to make sense.
Matt could not of been any more helpful and displays an outstanding knowledge of the subject. It was my first course with Matt but certainly won’t be my last. Looking forward to doing more of the wide range of course he offers.
Matt made the process of learning and understanding fun and very helpful.
Now to go practice.
Thanks for a great time and all your help.
I came away with a better idea of what I needed to do to help myself. He provided a convenient set of tips on laminated cards as a takeaway support tool. Best thing was his help on settings for my camera; but he seemed to know enough on all the makes and models in our group.
Adding to my review, since completing the beginners course I also completed the Street and Travel which was fantastic! The pandemic restrictions hit but that didn’t stop Matt. He found a virtual way to deliver some of the courses. So I gave it a shot with the Compositions workshop and it was truly worth it. Following that we were able to be out and about so I completed the all day Seascapes and Peninsulas workshop. We learned to use ND filters and become more familiar with our cameras, well worth it! I also attended a four day photography festival where Matt was one of the organisers and presenters. Needless to say it was jam packed and has kept me busy during ISO. Most recently I completed the mastering manual workshop and it did not disappoint and is well worth it. If you are looking to learn more about photography in a practical way, just book in with Matt, you won’t regret it!
Would definitely recommend others to attend his workshops and 10/10 would attend more of his workshops.
Thank you so much once again!
Additionally he seems to know how every camera works so even if you don’t it’s okay because he does.
The most recent addition was a 3 hour 1 on 1 workshop with Matt to recap and cover off ideas for an upcoming trip to Sri Lanka.
Matt is incredibly patient and a great teacher and has an ability to be able to explain complex explanations in a way that is easily relatable and you will remember.
The 1 on 1 workshop allowed me to ask as many questions as possible.
I also had the opportunity to explore filters and Speed lighting which I had never even considered before.
Would highly recommend Matt’s workshops he goes above and beyond for each and every one of his students !
Matt's small group workshops are the best way to enjoy life in small groups and get out and about while the public is sparse.
He's got plenty of sanitizer available and all classes are contactless.
Never stop learning! It's a great opportunity!
I attended his very helpful city night photography class and hope to do more with him in future.
great tips funny and easy to understand
This was a fantastic workshop. Learnt heaps and stepped out of my comfort zone. Matt is a great teacher and I am looking forward to doing more of his courses.
> Matt has a way of explaining technical jargon in layman’s terms.
> Matt breaks down the course into bite size chunks in a very logical order.
> well structured so that you can understand key components of any camera such that when you go out and take pics you apply what you have just learned and maximise your cameras settings
> Matt spends one on one time with participants in a small group to answer all your questions in full.
> gives you instant feedback on your photos so that you can take that pic again with better knowledge
5 out of 5 stars. Great course. I’ll definitely recommend Matt’s course to my friends and family.
I highly recommend this workshop with Matt.
Matt is a very talented and creative man.
as a beginner I couldn't believe how much I have learned in only 3 hours.
I really liked his approach to photography and how he teaches to see and observe everything around us.
I was in a small group of very nice people, so it wasn't crowded and easy to get individual guidelines from Matt.
highly recommended guys!
