Love Centennial Park Sydney. It is the perfect spot for picnic and possibly the safest place to ride a bicycle in Sydney. When we scheduled to have the Private Photography Workshop in Centennial Park Sydney, I immediately pictured in my mind the lush green grass and me lying on a blanket in the shade. Heaven! Teaching & taking pictures? Oh relax. Never mind the pictures…




It turned out we had a great, productive session.  Apart from roughly 20 minutes sitting & going through the photography theory in the park, everyone spent good 2 hours shooting and practicing.

It was a beautiful early autumn day. The sun shone brightly through top of the trees and it was green everywhere. A few people were taking naps in the park already.  We picked a nice, comfortable spot to settle for the workshop and everyone started to snap randomly, testing the cameras first. Centennial Park Sydney has 125 years of history. Some of the trees could have been here since 1888! The picture looked like an oil painting.

There were also a few families having their kids’ photos taken in Centennial Park that day. I came across this cutie, who has the biggest, most beautiful eyes. She has adorable curls and dressed nicely for the occasion. Of course she wasn’t striking a pose for me at that point. But I couldn’t resist capturing the moment…
