Mangroves, Moonscapes and Light Painting Workshop – $90


Mangroves, Moonscapes and Light Painting Workshop – $90

Adventure – Discover – Learn


We’ll be walking the Cape Woolamai Track shooting the rising Moon and we’ll use creative light painting to make awesome shots. The full moon will light up the landscape like daylight in our long exposure shots. This creates unique landscapes tat look like they were taken during the day however stars are visible in the sky.

This workshops focuses on shooting the starry night sky. Participants will learn how to obtain focus of the stars on dark nights, use a tripod, remote release and appropriate camera settings for catching the stars and star trails. We’ll also discuss how to plan a perfect astro shoot including locating the Milky Way relative to your position and how to photograph the elusive Southern Aurora.

Participants will also learn about the native animals and environment unique to the island to better understand what they are shooting. All workshop facilitators are island locals and professional photographers who have an intimate understanding of the environment, seasonal fluctuations, animals and conditions on the island.

The workshop is usually facilitated by two professional photographers/educators to ensure each participant gets plenty of one to one instruction and guidance.

The workshop lasts between 3-4 hours and participants need a moderate level of fitness.

Date and Time

Meeting Point and Workshop Location

We will meet at car park at Cape Woolamai Beach.


You should be able to adjust the aperture, shutter speed and ISO of your camera in Manual mode.


What to Bring

Participants need to bring their camera and all lenses, fully charged battery, empty memory card, good shoes, jumper or jacket, flashlight, remote release if you have one, any light painting gear and a small bottle of water. A tripod is necessary for this workshop.



The Phillip Island coast can be a rugged and unforgiving place. Coastal areas are prone to rogue waves and cliff tops are unstable. The island has a very sensitive ecosystem and we will require all participants to remain on the clearly marked paths at all times for their own safety and the safety of our local flora and fauna. Photo Rangers is not responsible for any loss or injury that may occur on the workshop.
