As part of Nikon Australia: Z Creators, join sunset photographer Nathan Godwin for this early evening workshop at the picturesque Henley Beach where you’ll learn to capture an array of short and long exposure images during the fast-changing light of a sunset, with and without filters.

The workshop will commence with a one-hour theoretical understanding of setting up your camera for a sunset landscape shoot, ensuring you capture unique images. Nathan will then lead you on a walk along the beach by the jetty to have a hands-on sunset shoot where you will put into practice your newfound knowledge.

During this workshop, you will learn the basics of shooting in manual mode, composition techniques, angles, as well as adapting to your environment. In addition, you will hear Nathan’s personal tips & tricks he has acquired over the years and receive feedback on shots captured during the evening.

You will have the unique opportunity to test and try select Z series bodies and lenses and learn the benefits of the Z system.
