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. We typically call it a night around 3:00 am, but if we have poor sky conditions towards the beginning of the workshop, we will shoot later into the night to maximize our shooting experience. There is no shortage of photo locations to shoot from.We will have new locations on each night, both nights will give you the best tour of the islands and more subjects to photograph. I will also have a few star trackers with me for you to use and get some other extremely detailed shots of the milky way and other space objects.

The perseids are one of the best meteor showers to watch and photography. Warm weather makes this perfect for overnight shooting and relaxation. The moon will set before midnight giving us moonless skies during the peak hours of the meteor shower to capture the biggest and best perseids.
