I’m sticking my nose in your discussion...
I arrived in New Zealand at the beginning of the month with a one year Working Holiday Visa and I’m looking forward to experience shooting the night sky in the Southern Hemisphere for a change.
I’m already having a blast visiting and shooting during the day.
I’m currently in the Coromandel Peninsula, headed to Cathedral Cove area for the next two days.
I was wondering if anyone was in the area?
Not feeling overly confident about going out in the dark in new places in the middle of the night, on my own... Plus, it would be nice to have company and someone who knows this night sky. Or just for a regular sunrise/sunsest shoot (while the moon is up ).
If you are in any other area in NZ and are looking to go out for a shoot, let me know as I’m planning on traveling all around over the next few months.
I’m also all ears if you have advice on best places, best times to shoot, etc.
Cheers (that’s what you say right? )
Hi Virginie, Welcome to New Zealand. I appreciate your post but am unable to assist, particularly with night sky, also. You will find NZ to be a most photogenic country, and may be lucky enough to see the Southern Lights when in the lower part of the South Island. Hopefully you will also find NZers, (Kiwis) to be warm and generous folk in general. Best wishes, Good travels, and post your pics
