Do you wish you could use your camera to capture what your eyes see?

This Coastal Sunset landscape photography workshop is perfect for those with a passion for capturing the beauty of the sun setting and changing colours against the coastline from Bare Island at La Perouse. Darren will take you through the techniques required on how to best turn the reality of the natural environments you visit into equally memorable images.

Our Nikon School Lecturer Darren Leigh Roberts will teach you how to set up and customise your camera so that you’ll be able to capture sunset coastal landscapes under the changing sunset light, develop your compositional eye to capture the coastlines’s richness of colour, raw natural landscape and wild ocean in motion.
