Auckland - Sunset & Cityscapes - Full!

  • Puhi Huia Rd Auckland, Auckland, 1024 New Zealand (map)

Mt Eden is an iconic place to shoot golden hour and the sunset in Auckland. We will meet at the top of the crater and photograph the lovely afternoon light first before moving to a tried and true location to shoot the sunset over the harbour bridge as the city lights come on.  I've deliberately planned this workshop for a weekday evening as on weekends Mt Eden is just too busy to get any shots without hordes of tourists in the frame.  I know the start time won't suit some, but perhaps try to get off work a little early for this one :)

A tripod is a must. A telephoto lens will best serve the sunset & city shots. A wider lens will work well for the crater.  As usual ND and ND Grad filters will be of use.  Wear a jacket and bring a plastic bag to throw over your camera if a shower passes through.  It is Auckland after all :) There is parking about halfway up, but it may be full, otherwise street parking on Mt Eden Road is available.
