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.

We will be up shooting most of the night. The closest hotels are in Ocean City, MD and short drive north of the island. You may also find a campsite on Assateague Island if you wish to camp. I will most likely get a campsite. If you wish to camp I suggest reserving your spot early. Reservations start on If you would like a campsite near me, let me know and I can't help you out with that when we arrive. They take no reservations for winter camping, just show up, there will be plenty of campsites to choose from.
A full list of camera gear will be supplied to upon registering, the basics are a DSLR camera , wide/fast angle lens, a tripod and a cable release. Most gear that is used can be found on the workshop overview page.
