Yesterday was another Social Snappers Photography Excursion, and this time we went to Banyule Flats. It was a gorgeous afternoon and the sun was beautiful. We walked around places I haven’t walked through for a few years, and we tried to work out places to take photos. The weather really was perfect.
The swamp put on a great show and throughout the flats you could see the early signs of spring. There were people out on bikes everywhere and people walking. I think you could almost say that spring fever hit Melbourne, not something I’ve ever experienced before, but definitely have this year, we all want nicer weather, well nearly all of us.
There is only one more Social Snappers event this term, a trip to the city on the 21st of September, a Sunday, though this one starts later, at 6 pm. We will be taking photos along the river, though a different end to where I normally do, and then into the city. Should be a good evening, night photography is always good fun. Unlike other trips, this one really is for those that have a DSLR, Bridge camera or Mirrorless. You need to be able to control everything, and you will also need a tripod.
I have already done some dates for one day next term, with where we will be going,
Oct 5th – Heide and Banksia Park
Oct 19th – Collins Street, one end to the other
Nov 2nd – Fitzroy gardens
Nov 16 – Docklands
Dec 7 – City Christmas Lights.
All are on Sundays, and in the afternoon, except for the last one which will be in the evening. I am also going to be offering a Thursday as well.
The cost will be $40 a session, if you book all 5 sessions you will get a 25% discount, and it will cost $160.
Remember, they are for all levels of photography. There is no show and tell, there is just fun had being with other people taking photos. You would have no idea what settings my camera are on, but if you need help, then no problem, If you want to take photos with your phone, again, no problem. I don’t want people to think they have to have a certain level of skill to be able to do these excursions, just come and have fun taking photos.
I have a gallery with a few of my favourite photos from yesterdays excursion.
