The Night Photography Workshop is a great evening out in Montville with Andrew Goodall. Learn what photographers get up to after dark! Learn how to focus at night, and discover the settings that produce great results with some special effects, as well as Milky Way photography and Star Trails.
Our setting is Lake Baroon at Montville in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Far enough from the coast and from Brisbane and surrounded by hills, this is one of the best places to view the night sky without interference from city lights.
Ideally we hope for clear skies but these cannot be guaranteed, so Andrew has a fun selection of artificial-light props to ensure some amazing photos. The Luminous Andywing Butterfly may make an appearance!
The workshop is ideal for people who have some experience with the basics and want to learn some new skills. It is not designed to teach you first principles of manual photography, so if you don’t understand shutter speed, aperture, ISO etc. you should consider doing the Photography Essentials workshop first. Make sure you have suitable equipment for night photography…see below for further information.
These workshops are usually held in Winter when the days are short so we can get an early start. However it will be cold so dress accordingly! Each workshop is a little different due to phases of the moon, but most dates offer a good chance to photograph the Milky Way if it is a clear night. In the event of bad weather we can reschedule, and Andrew usually keeps the following weekend free as a backup option.
Before you make your booking: Please read below the section on camera gear, and make sure you have suitable equipment to get the most out of this workshop. In short, a DSLR or Mirrorless DSLR camera, wide angle lens and a tripod. Some kind of remote release is also recommended. If in doubt feel free to contact me to make sure you have what you need before you book for the workshop.
