Sydney’s annual celebration of Light, Music and Ideas is the perfect opportunity to perfect the intricacies of night photography. Canon and acclaimed travel photographer, Richard l’Anson, took the time to guide media guests, including LATTE, along the Vivid Sydney 2015 trail with a Canon EOS 70D DSLR at their side. With different sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, guests gathered at Canon HQ in the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) to learn the functions and capabilities of the camera, before setting out on a tour through the fantastical light displays through The Rocks and Circular Quay. Guests captured some of Richard’s Vivid highlights, including the MCA and from the roof of The Argyle in The Rocks.
Thanks to walking the trail in small groups, everyone was given the opportunity to perfect the skills of night photography, long exposure and short exposure with a Canon professional. After visiting four main sites, the group returned to Canon HQ to print out their best photo in A3.
For those who would like to learn more about photography, Canon is running Walking Tours throughout Vivid until 7 June 2015, including a free SD card, use of a Canon EOS 70D camera with an EF-S 18-135mm STM lens and an A3 print of their best photo.
