PICTURE ME SYDNEY TRIP ADVISTOR 5 STAR RATING

I had a wonderful time in Sydney and it’s largely motivated by your photography tour. I did more “homework” yesterday from the hotel window trying to capture the lightning… and more long exposures of the Sydney Harbour… I never liked my tripod so much! What I’m trying to say is that you are a real good teacher, Terry. You taught us the principle of long exposure photography and enabled us to utilize the same formula for shooting different scenery. I will carry on the enthusiasm back home.

A walk through historic Rocks area, panoramic city views from a nearby park and then to some amazing spots to photograph the Sydney Harbour as the sun sets.
