We held our very first Adventure based BASIC Workshop on Wilson’s Prom on Saturday 26 Nov 2016. The weather was questionable with occasional fits of showers. We started at Squeaky Beach and explored the beautiful granite boulders before traversing the length of the beach to the trail on the far side. Along the beach were thousands of Blue Bottle Jellyfish. These are not common to our cooler waters and were an unusual sight on the white sand of Squeaky Beach.
At the far end of the beach we practiced shooting on Shutter Priority Mode by focusing on the waves crashing into granite boulders. Before hitting the trail up to Pillar Point we practiced shooting on Aperture Mode with the beautiful ferns and tiny succulents found among the rocks.
The hike to Pillar Point is characterised by sweeping views of Squeaky Beach, Norman and Great Glennie Island and groves of Coastal Tea Trees that completely encloses the trail in some areas.
The view from Pillar Point is unparalleled and offers views from Tidal River to the island groups to Squeaky Beach. We arrived just in time to catch the last rays of the sun as it went down behind Norman Island. This was the perfect place and opportunity to learn to shoot in Manuel Mode and really unleash the power of the camera.
