We had great weather for the workshop and everyone seemed to enjoy the opportunity to get out in the great outdoors and practice their camera craft.
We met on the Monday evening for a beer or three and dinner at the resort restaurant.
Our next morning started with a revision of general capture techniques and some basic image processing in ACR and Photoshop. In the afternoon we travelled out in Peter's 4X4 to The Pinnacles (a geological formation), an old copper smelters and a couple of waterholes.
Dinner was around the camp fire.
Wednesday saw us on the famous Ride Top Tour through unbelievably beautiful country side with red and orange, rugged mountain ranges on equally rugged four-wheel drive track. The afternoon was spent looking at some more processing techniques in Photoshop and collectively working on some of our images to demonstrate practical processing workflows. That evening we journeyed out to Arkaroola Waterhole and were lucky enough to get some good shots of the endangered Yellow-Footed Rock Wallaby.
Dinner was again around the camp fire and after a few reds to keep the night chill away we practiced our night photography techniques.
Thursday morning we were back in Peter's 4X4 to knock a bit more rubber off his tyres on the rough terrain of the Echo Camp Back Track - a one way pay for use four-wheel drive track. The conditions were fantastic and we were lucky enough to find large clumps of Sturt Desert Pea in flower.
The afternoon was spent processing images and explaining why Peter and I did what we did to them in Photoshop.
We wound up the workshop with dinner at the restaurant with wine once more being turned into water!
