Matt Krumins Photography

Nov 16th Update:

Firstly just a huge thank-you to everyone who has done the right thing over the past difficult months and a massive thank you to those who have supported my  business through my online offerings. Private and most group workshop are resuming over Nov/Dec with group sizes increasing from max 4 in Nov to max 6 in Dec.

 Safety approach during last reopening (for reference):

  • Group sizes lowered to a maximum of 6 participants (group size of 7 including myself).
  • Hand Sanitiser available at all times
  • Workshops locations are modified to avoid crowded areas.
  • Participants are actively asked to social distance in our safety briefing at the start of our workshop with reminders during our workshop if I believe distances are being breached.
  • Participants who have even mild cold or flu symptoms are not to attend. To assist with this I have removed the requirement for 7 days notice to reschedule to ensure you are not penalised for making the right judgement call to not attend.
  • Masks need to be worn at all times in accordance with Victorian Government recommendations.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss how I am handling these measures please contact me on 0402 812 805.

PENINSULA SEASCAPES PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

with Matt Krumins Photography

CAPTURE MAGIC

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 MENTORING

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'.

MASTER HISTOGRAMS

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.

WORKSHOP DETAILS

Small groups = More Personalisation.

Sunrise to approx 3pm
Small groups to keep things personal
includes NiSi Filter Hire for the day
Meet at Cape Schanck Lighthouse carpark

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.

WORKSHOP PLAN

1. MEET
We meet in the Cape Schanck Lighthouse carpark at the allocated time and walk down to the first platform at Cape Schanck
2. BASE SETINGS & SUNRISE
We use the rising sun as an opportunity to discuss and practice our camera settings, focus techniques as well as to start the conversation around composition.
3. LONG EXPOSURES
Moving down to the pebble beaches around the Cape we will jump head first into our in-depth lesson on long exposure photography using Neutral Density filters (kits provided). We will then spend the next couple of hours incorporating long exposures with our compositions.
4. LOCATION 2
From Cape Schanck will will self-drive a bit further down the peninsula grabbing some lunch on the way and then visiting Bridgewater Bay where we will look at focus stacking, panorama photography as well as work further on our compositions and long exposures.
5. SUPPORT
Following our workshop you will be invited to join our exclusive 'Matt's Mob' Facebook support group. This is probably the friendliest photography group on the internet with hundreds of like-minded people all wanting to keep the fun in photography.

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

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?

"I had a great experience on the peninsula day tour. The tour is very informative and Matt is very happy to share his knowledge and experiences. The added benefit is that it doesn't stop once the tour is over. There is a lot of support following to continue developing your photography skills. Highly recommend!"
