- Product code: PPT.FFW
A tuition-focused photography walkabout in the natural rainforest environment of kunanyi/Mt Wellington in Hobart, Tasmania.
Ideal for beginner to intermediate photographers. Available by prior arrangement.
On this walkabout, you’ll be surrounded by tall eucalyptus trees overhead and tree-ferns alongside. You'll find many opportunities for creative photography – the colours, patterns and textures of the foliage, beautiful fungi (mushrooms) emerging from the nutrient rich forest floor and water cascading over escarpments and along the tree-lined creek. Maybe you'll focus on the lush lichens and mosses.
What will you discover, experience and photograph?
Plenty of stops along the way including a waterfall where you can practice different techniques for nature photography. Along the way, you may encounter some wildlife or birds as well! Tripods are available for loan if you don't have one of your own.
