Budding photographers have the opportunity to record what happens when the sun goes down at a Winter Weekends workshop on Friday night.
Local shutterbugs Perry Cho and Peter Chamberlain, plus members from the Western Victoria Photography Group, will lead workshop participants on a walk to look at the beautifully lit cottages on Wishart St and discuss all aspects photographing the lights at night.
"It is important for us to share knowledge and help everyone learn the basics of photography," Mr Cho said.
"We want to let people get started and get excited about photography."
The workshops will examine the settings needed for different situations, how to control exposure, how to frame an image and the use of specialist equipment such as filters, Peter Chamberlain said.
"It can be daunting at first learning to use the manual settings," he said.
"We will work on nailing down those settings and examining composition techniques, just the basics."

The Western Victoria Photography Group will also lead a landscape photography workshop on Griffith Island on Sunday, from the changed time of 4pm.
This workshop will examine the best ways to capture a beautiful sea and island landscape images at dusk, with a particular focus on the Port Fairy Lighthouse.
"Hopefully we will get some nice light out there," Mr Chamberlain said.
"(Participants) will need their camera and a tripod, and remember to rug up. It's always cold here in Port Fairy on the winter weekends."
Photographers interested in capturing wildlife images can join Chris Farrell for a talk about identifying whales on Sunday at Charlies on East.
With three books to his name, Mr Farrell will take people through the ways to capture great whale photos on everything from a phone to a DSLR.
The talk will include information on the new citizen science program launched by DELWP to help track and identify the different whale individuals and species visiting the south-west coastline, Mr Farrell.
"I will show the difference between the main species that pass along our coastline and how individual Southern Right Whales can identified," he said.
All workshops are free.
