Giant moon by Paean Ng - Astrordinary Imaging guest artist Edgewalkers Creativity & Walking Retreat

This 2-day/2-night retreat is for anyone who: 

  1. would like to learn how to express their creativity through astrophotography and learn techniques for capturing the night sky;
  2. loves walking and wants to reconnect with nature through some guided day and night walks in the Margaret River region;
  3. wants to be inspired into a more creative life and learn some creative thinking and idea generation tools.

The retreat has three components:

PRACTICE Night Astrophotography - learn the basics of astrophotography, including the basics of wide field panoramas. Capture and bring to life the beauty of the southwest night skies and immerse yourself in nature and a creative experience. On top of learning aspects of camera set up like how to focus at night, calculate exposure & settings, you will also have the opportunity to learn the process of visualising the wide field panorama by using parts of the Milky Way to line up compositions. 

EXPLORATION - Workshop - a creative playful exploration of our creative lives; what we are hoping to be creative about now and in the future; where to start, how to sustain it - we will use creative thinking techniques to explore, examine and move through the trajectory of where you are now and where you want to be with your creative practice – whatever that might be;

REFLECTION - Walking & Writing - let your mind wander as we walk various natural spots along the Cape to Cape. The walks are an opportunity to connect with nature and reflect on all that is emerging during the retreat. You will have a chance to write your experiences and thoughts as a way to reflect and learn.

Paean Ng is an award winning professional photographer specialising in panoramas & photospheres. Please check his work at Astrordinary Imaging
