Vivid Sydney is a big festival in every winter which combining light, ideas, and music in order to attract more visitor come to here and fuel economic growth since 2009.

Vivid Sydney, now is eighth year, as the time growth, New venues include Taronga Zoo and the Royal Botanic Garden light for Vivid Sydney this year. More companies support for this big event and offer some free course to people, such as Canon, google etc.

Canon returns to Museum of Contemporary Art supporting Vivid Sydney again this year, which offers workshops for helping people capture and print in order to keep and share their memories.

There are studio workshops, guided walking tours and helicopter flights for people to join in Canon this year, and I choose Canon Collective Walking Tours at Vivid Sydney for experience.

The tour is from 6:15pm in every 30 minutes until 8:30pm, therefore there have 6 tours every day from May 27th-June 18th. So picking pick a time at your convenience ,come to join Canon.

Canon provides every participants with Canon’s latest DSLR camera The EOS 80D and EF-S 18-135mm Lens, My tour Ambassador names Susan, who introduced matters need attention, such as, how to use this camera, how to protect camera from drop and the plan of tour etc.

From this tour you can find best spots around Circular Quay and Sydney’s historic Rocks district to take beautiful photos, and get photographic advice from Canon Ambassador developing your skills.

Canon Master Richard I’Anson says, Vivid Sydney presents on nearly three weeks, you do have a chance to visit your favourite sights and reshoot and learn from shots you may take from previous night. This is a great way to improve your photographic generally, but if you go back to shoot subjects, the more formiliar you get, you have opportunities to try different technics, just work on your favourite methods.
