Exploring Hobsons Bay

27th August, 2023 – 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Photo Shoot

Following the trail of our presentation by Ruth Schwazenholz we'll take a look at our own backyard with an adventure in Hobsons Bay.

Three locations inspired by Ruth Schwazenholz presentation. Photo opportunities are varied so bring any lens that you think is appropriate for your shooting requirements. You may want to challenge yourself by using one lens. A tripod isn't necessary unless you are using filters or a very long lens.
