This was a tutorial as well as a meetup and the tutor, Richie Lwin was very good. We had an hour of tutorial then an hour of practice, with his help. So not only were we in this beautiful place taking photographs, there were fireworks! Darling Harbour is fabulous at night regardless but they are holding a Month of Love festival, and also two weeks of events to celebrate Chinese new year.
Here are links to the sydney Photography Meetup Group and Darling Harbour Month of Love page. Scroll down for more fireworks dates, if you are a Sydney sider!
The meetup group was so much fun that I will probably go to some of Richie or Brent's other tutorial sessions in the future.
Who knew that setting your white balance for tungsten works really well on neon lights? Not me but I do now...
The purple things in the water are the neon lights on little row boats that couples can hire.
There were ten of us in the group with our cameras and tripods and for some reason wherever we went we seemed to draw a crowd.
It was a good night. Linking to Weekend Reflections
