Humpback Whale Migration Photo Safari - Sunset Whale Watching tour

When: August 2,2017
Time: 2:30pm
Category: Workshops

Join the Canon Collective and Matt Kemp for an exhilarating water-safari photographic experience at sunset for the humpback whale migration.

Our expert guide and captain will provide information about whale behavior as we track and photograph the majestic humpback whales and their calves as they travel back south to the cooler waters of the Antarctic region.

This is no tourist boat - this is a special interest, water safari aboard a military-spec rigid-hull inflatable vessel, providing the closest (and safest) water-level viewpoint. The boat is extremely powerful and can move very quickly from pod-to-pod. The vessel is filled to half capacity for maximum comfort and ease of mobility. The water-level vantage point means your whale photos will look spectacular!

Canon will be onboard to assist you with your wildlife photography and display the latest EF100-400mm lens along with the Canon EOS 5Div and EOS1DXii cameras.

Techniques covered:

Focus techniques, Shutter Speed, Super-Telephoto Lens, Metering, Creative Exposure in available light, and Dynamic Shooting techniques.

Recommended equipment:

Bring your Canon DSLR camera, telephoto lens, padded camera bag, memory cards, and charged batteries. No tripods required.

Event location:

Pick up from two locations: 1) Ocean Extreme, Circular Quay; and 2) Manly Kayak Pantoon

Preparation must be taken if prone to sea sickness. For safety purposes, anyone with spinal issues or severe knee injuries will not be able to join this experience. As this event is outdoors, please be mindful of your surroundings. Dress for the weather forecast (a re-schedule will be made if conditions are appalling i.e. high wind, rain, large swell).
