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, time-lapse photography and light painting and go over how to set up and use star trackers. The workshop will start just before sunset and last into the wee hours in the morning. We typically call it a night around 3:00am (depending on weather) we may shoot longer though. 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 are no shortages of photo locations to shoot from and with a new moon we will have dark skies all night. This workshop will be conducted in the Maryland District of Assateague Island. We will spend time both doing landscape astrophotography and also using star trackers.
**The Assateague Tree which used to stand on the bayside of the island collapsed in high winds during a Mid- December 2022 storm. It was snapped in half and all that remains is a stump now, so we will still photograph the stump, but the tree is no long there. R.I.P Assateague tree. Some pics of the tree can be see when you scroll down**
Random meteors fly through the sky every night and I am sure that we will see a few over the course of the weekend.

The "assateague tree" unfortunately collapsed in high winds in mid December 2022, just days after my 2022 Geminid Meteor Shower workshop there. All that remains is a stump.
