Griffith photography master and guru Garry Bazzacco will divulge more than four decades’ knowledge at this year’s Pioneer Park Museums’s action day.
Mr Bazzacco has been behind the lens and capturing spectacular images throughout almost half of Griffith’s history, immortalising moments in time and documenting the city’s colourful past for generations to come to appreciate.
The museums curator Jason Richardson feels the workshops are a sensational opportunity for visitors to improve their skills using a camera.
He’s giving the budding or the intermediate snapper an opportunity learn from one of Griffith’s living legends.
“The workshops will cater for interested people,” Mr Bazzacco said
“From the novice to the enthusiast, being fully beneficial for all those that participate.”
There will be two well in formed sessions, the morning stint will concentrate and introduce participants to understanding of camera settings.
“Using a camera is basically painting with light,” Mr Bazzacco explained. “Just as a painter will have different brushes to create effects, cameras have different settings that are good to know if you want to get a certain result.”
The afternoon spell will delve into applying the camera setting to outdoor photography situations.
“There is so much action on the day that I expect we’ll be able to explore the real world applications of a few photography techniques,” Mr Bazzacco said.
The group will wonder around the museum, applying practical experience and exploring different lighting conditions and framing techniques.
The museum opened in 1971 and celebrates its 46th birthday this year and the community is encouraged to immerse itself in the Griffith of yesteryear.
Action Day gives children a great chance to see what daily life was like in the early 1900s as well as parents and grandparents to reminisce.
With vintage cars and farm machinery being cranked into gear and enveloping all the senses.
Admire the skills of the blacksmith and take a pony or train ride around the village. The wood-fired bread oven will be baking fresh loaves for lunch and there’ll be a great line-up of entertainment. Free shuttles leave from the Griffith Visitor Information Centre from 10am.
