Photowalk Community – Astro photo walk

July 10, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - 10:30 PM

For our July Photowalk we’re meeting up with the MCC Grace Lock Group to make the most of a new moon for some Astro and Nightscape photography. We will be heading out west to Little River, a small town 50km from Melbourne between Werribee and Geelong. As we’re a bit of a social group, we’ll catch up for a meal before heading out into the (hopefully) clear and crisp night air. The evening will include a workshop in the pub before we head out, this will be all about the settings, equipment, tools and techniques to get you started for Astro photography.

Important – please RSVP in advance to attend the dinner as numbers will be limited due to restaurant capacity – please book your place to join the dinner, as soon as you can, and ideally before 5pm Friday 9 July, by commenting below or email us: photowalks@melbournecameraclub.org.au
