3. Outing to Ushaka SeaWorld Aquarium

We are shooting for a longer period this time, which should allow us the opportunity to master the shooting conditions! This is a late afternoon shoot, going into the evening. The sun sets at 6pm, so we will at least an hour and a half of daylight to shoot, before we move into night time shooting! We will have supper somewhere afterwards.

FYI - SeaWorld offers after hours access to the aquarium at a lower priced rate. It is called "After Dark" - 4.30pm to 8pm. Fee R50. Most evenings it is open, unless there is a function on. 
Date: Sat 29 March 2014
Time: 4.30 - 8pm
Cost: R50 (This is the normal access fee to get into the aquarium at this time)

4. Tour Natal Rally  - 14 & 15 March 2014

This is a fantastic opportunity to shoot motorsport photography at its best! Lots of speed, drama and dust! Check the route map for the spectator points, and make sure you get there with enough time to be in position to shoot.
