Tauranga customised photo tour starts today (Sept 18) with airport collection about midday.
I have designed a personalised tour focusing on landscapes and night shoots commencing in Rotorua for the first afternoon then shifting to Tauranga.
A stop in bottom of Pyes Pa Gorge Road on way to Tauranga for some long exposure shots round off the afternoons shooting.
Morning beach sunrises, bush walks, waterfalls, and evening harbour and night lights shoots will follow over 4 days. We’ll throw in travelling in a vintage Ford Model T for a visit to a kiwifruit orchard, its pruning season, so not most interesting time but expect to see workers in action, and a cruise across, and around, Lake Rotoiti in a vintage boat with fish and chips lunch.
So here’s a little summary of the tour. It’s fair to say it went really well. We covered a lot of territory in the days available, we were able to share photography techniques, see some new ones tried and in the evenings look into expanding the use of Lightroom by a better understanding of some of its features.
Early morning, blue hour at Mount Maunganui;
Lex sets up for a shot of stream while Lex and Eric take in the view.
Lex lines up a log and casts a long shadow.
Then off to see a kiwifruit orchard in 1930’s Ford. Stopping by the orchard outhouse for workers.
At the Bridge Marina for our last dinner together when we caught this little tacker on a scooter.
Four days, a great range of photo opps, and the chance to utilise a range of photographic techniques – a great few days.
