Location

 We will go over the necessary equipment, as well as the camera settings needed for night photography. When the milkyway begins to rise, we will spend a couple hours working with different techniques such as milkyway compositions, light painting, star trails, and much much more! The workshop will conclude as soon as we have concluded our topics.

Difficulty

I welcome all skill levels to my workshops. Please keep in mind that this is not a photography 101 course, so all participants should have working knowledge how to navigate their camera menus and a basic understanding shooting in Manual mode. I keep my group sizes small so I can attend to each individuals needs throughout the workshop and rarely bring out my camera. If you are worried about not receiving enough direction or you have never shot the night sky before, please consider taking a Private 1-on-1 Workshop. As far as physically difficulty is concerned, there is very minimal hiking involved. We will be close to our cars but be prepared to walk.
