Join me at the Photo and Film expo beginning of November 2013 for a 2 part workshop on astrophotography. I’ll be discussing the basics of night photography for astro, equipment requirements, and optimal image settings. Have you ever wanted to photograph the milky way, or detailed close up moon photos? Even planets like Jupiter and Saturn can be imaged with minimal equipment.
Day 2 will be a more in depth discussion on deep space photography, and the technical challenges of how to take long exposure photos to reveal the splendour the night sky has to offer.
