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 go well into the night as we perfect our night photography skills. We will be close to a "New Moon" which means we will no interference from moonlight making the darkest night sky conditions here possible on this night. With 20 years of experience camping on this island, I know the best spots to be, and at the right times, so get ready for a night full of fun and adventure on Assateague Island along Maryland's eastern shores. 

We will have dark skies for the entire night and the remains of a meteor shower will grace the midnight skies. The possibilities are endless! We will also have 2 Star Trackers set up for you to capture high res / low noise images of the milky way and other night sky objects!
