WEEKEND AWAY - FRI 24 AUG, SAT 25 AUG, SUN 26 AUG 2012
We plan to spend the weekend away from the hustle and bustle, and immersing

About the weekend:
We would like to take advantage of being out in the ‘bundus’ and enjoy
nature. In the evenings the almost 100% darkness will provide excellent
opportunities for us to ‘paint with light’ and as a highlight, try to shoot
star trails. We will also have full access to the Baynesfield house and
surroundings, for us to shoot whatever we like. At the fairs, we can’t fully
enjoy the photographic opportunities.
We have secured full access to Baynesfield for Saturday morning.
We have put together an itinerary of what we anticipate doing. You are
more than welcome to participate, or to do your own thing, as long as
its taking photos!
The main genres of
photography covered are:
Landscape, Macro, Portrait (if you can get a willing subject), Night
Star Trails – Friday evening
With the near to 100% darkness, we should be able to achieve something
similar to these shots. Bring extra batteries.
Light - Saturday evening:
Equipment to bring –

shoot the sunset. We plan to have sun downers while watching and shooting the
Where we will be
Dawnview Christian Camp is a recreation camp set in the picturesque hills of
