Noble Falls - October 24th

Landscape photography from start to finish workshops are designed to take you through the entire process of capturing stunning nature based photographs.

Noble Falls is located just 45 minutes from the Perth CBD, it is one of the largest, and most photogenic waterfalls of the Perth Hills. Here, the Wooroloo Brook cascades across the Darling Scarp.

Over the day we have two practical photography classes. The first will be an on location shoot, where our focus will be using slow shutter photography to capture Noble Falls in stunning afternoon light. I will coach you through choosing the right settings with your camera in manual mode, teach you to nail your focus every time, and show the benefits/effects of a few lens filters.

Session two will consist of a 2.5hr post processing session at Midland Camera House, where I will demonstrate how to get the most out of your images using Adobe Lightroom &/or Photoshop.

Perth Astrophotography Workshops

No doubt one of the most popular workshops that I hold. We are incredibly lucky to have such dark skies in Western Australia and it is no surprise that many wish to photograph those stars!
But Astrophotography doesn't come with out it's challenges. Weather is a determining factor of a successful astro shoot.

With that in mind, I don't often organise astro workshops too far in advance. Instead, I ask you to fill out the Astrophotography EOI form to let me know you are interested - and then I will contact you when the forecast is promising!


WHY CHOOSE A NATURE BY NATHAN WORKSHOP?

I have spent the last quarter of my life completely engrossed in photography. As a self-taught photographer, day in and out I research, and put into action techniques for creating captivating images. I want to share that with you.

As a specialised landscape photographer I can assist you in your own personal endeavours through what I have learned. There are absolutely no secrets kept in my photography workshops, and that's how I believe it should be.

I offer professional one on one - private coaching, small group workshops(up to 6 participants), and online workshops.

POST PROCESSING - PRACTICAL PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP (1.5 -2.5hr)

Available as a 1 on 1, small group , or online workshop.

Bring your images to life using Adobe Lightroom, and/or Photoshop. These workshops can be run in the comfort of your own home, or at a public meeting place such as a local cafe.

Software Overview
If you are new to Photoshop and Lightroom, these programmes can be very overwhelming. I'll give you the run-down and start off with the very basics such as importing & exporting images, finding your way around the software etc. (we'll skip this if you're already using these programmes)

Image Format For Optimal Processing
RAW Vs. JPEG photographs. The difference shooting in RAW will make when post processing. (with examples)

Follow Along Edit
Together we will edit an image from start to finish (mine or yours). Through previous post processing workshops, I have found this to be the most effective process to learn how and when each of the tools can be used to achieve stunning results.

Recommendations, Coaching, Q&A
The remainder of the workshop will be spent coaching you on how to tastefully process your images. Ask as many questions you like.


What to bring:
You need to have your own laptop with Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom installed (Lightroom Classic is the preference). I recommend up to date versions to get the most out of this workshop. Ensure you have all the images you would like to edit on your computer ready to go, or on a memory card with you.

Online Workshops are run via Zoom video conferencing - a free application  that can be downloaded to your computer.
