Photography Course Brisbane Gateway Bridge

October 12, 2019

Have you ever, photographed buildings or a bridge, especially tall ones? The buildings seem to be leaning backward, with their originally vertical lines converging towards the top. This is called distortion and is a result of changing perspective. I bet you have encountered this problem at least a couple of times. Wonder how to overcome this unwanted appearance? Then this workshop is just right for you.

  • The advice of a duo of internationally recognized photographers.
  • Keen to click professional level photographs using DSLRs and improve technical skills.
  • Learning something new is vital for any aspiring photographer, not to mention how interesting and fun it can be.
