ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

This workshop will teach you everything you need to know about how to take great photographs of the milky way, stars and meteor showers. We will also cover star trails,  timelapse photography and light painting. The workshop will start at Sunset and last into the wee hours in the morning. Both nights will have different shooting locations.  The core of the milky way will not be visible during this time, but the outer bands of the milky way will be visible all night. The approach is the same for the winter sky as it is the summer sky, so when you are out in the spring and summer, photographing the milky way will be a piece of cake!

This is a 1 night or 2 night workshop. I suggest taking both nights to maximize out shooting opportunities with the locations as well as the weather outlook. The first night will be a warm up and preparation for the peak night (2nd Night) so that when the show is at it's maximum we will be taking full advantage of 200 meteors per hour from the Geminids.
