To anyone even vaguely considering a photography workshop with Julie, I can’t recommend it highly enough. No matter what your level (and believe me, some of us weren’t nearly as advanced as others!), Julie will guide you through her approach to taking her amazing images - from thinking out of the box about composition, making sure you get the best exposure possible, and generally taking control of your camera - right through to how to put the finishing touches in post-processing.. All wrapped up in a fun weekend full of laughs, great company, great food - and some of the most awe-inspiring landscape you can imagine! You will come away with a bunch of new skills, new friends, plus some amazing images of your own - you definitely won’t be disappointed.
Where does one start - well my one wish was to learn how to use my camera on manual mode !
My impression of Julie prior to the tour to a week after finishing has been nothing but professional – at the same time I was very much a beginner and at no time did I ever feel as though I was less knowledgeable than anyone else.
Julie was always happy to help with either information, settings, help with composition, lighting and always praising me – which made my 4 days a remarkable experience.
For anyone reading this – Yes I am still using my camera on manual mode!!!!!
ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, and Histogram have become well known words in my vocabulary.
Not forgetting the following words : composition, hard and soft light, shadows, focus, bracketing, white balance, tripod, light meter, depth of field, and also finally LIGHTROOM !!!!!
Does brain drain come into this !!!!!
Early morning starts – fully packed days – lots of laughs, great company, information, assistance, amazing photos, and great meals – all in all a total success – if you have ever wished
to improve your photography I would firmly recommend doing a Julie Fletcher Photography Tour.
Until we meet again – hopefully sooner than later
To anyone thinking about this trip with Julie, JUST BLOODY WELL SIGN UP AND DO IT!
This is an amazing adventure and Julie is the consumate photographer, tour guide and entertainer ?
You'll have a ball, learn more than you could possibly imagine, travel through the awesome beauty of the Flinders Ranges and end up with some nice memories to hang on your wall. Certain to exceed expectations
